Giulietta/147/146/145/33: This small car range for AR starts in the chart below with the 33 which ended production in 1994. The 3 door 145 and 5 door 146 then took over that year and went until 2000. The 147 then became the model number, this car voted the European Car of the Year in 2001. In 2010 it was replaced by the Giulietta.

MiTo: The three door super-mini is named after Milan and Turin and was aimed at cars like BMW's MINI. After an initial spurt in sales, it is now produced in modest numbers.
159, 156, 155: This series of executive compact cars starts here with the 155 which went from 1992-98. The came the popular 156 which ran until 2006 when the 159 was introduced. It ended in 2011 and will be replaced by the Giulia in 2015.
Breva/GTV: The GTV and spider (roadster) models shown here were the 916 series which started in 1995. Then came the replacement cars in 2005 Called the Breva with a Spider model too. They petered out in 2010 with no sign of a replacement.
GT: This sports car was made between 2003 and 2010 using the 156 platform. It was a one off model it seems and also was not replaced.
8C: I have to say this was quite a stylish up-market sports car, made for only a brief period though.

166, 164: The Executive car for AR was the 164 from 1987-98. Then the 166 took over until it ended in 2007. No replacement has been made.
4C: This small sports car was released in 2013 but production numbers will be up to 2,500 units.

From this we can realise that AR has reduced it's range and production has fallen below the 100,000 mark. VW showed interest in buying AR but it is not for sale and Fiat has plans to ramp up production with models such as an SUV, which would get things moving and do wonders for the bottom line.
