2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary

Yikes, where does the time go? The MX-5 Miata is fast closing in on its 30th birthday, but Mazda apparently couldn’t wait until the pearl-anniversary year of its beloved two-seat roadster to roll out a welcome round of enhancements. Ever since the first Miata debuted at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show as a 1990 model, Mazda has stayed wonderfully true to its original MX-5 concept: a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive, lightweight two-seat sports car with modest power, an easily removable roof, and a sporty-yet-compliant suspension.

Maybe it was the day …

Maybe it was the road …

Maybe it was the scenery …

But the sunny preview romp along the twisting ribbons of asphalt that wrap through the high-desert mountains of Southern California made me fall for the Mazda Miata all over again.

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

An all-new Mazda MX-5 Miata is scheduled to arrive in showrooms as a 2016 model, the fourth generation of this classic sports car.

It wasn’t long after its introduction for 1990 that the Mazda Miata gained a cult following. Clearly intended as a resurrection of the classic British sports car (though one that was actually likely to get you home), the Miata has survived nearly 25 years in an industry that sheds low-production cars like a Shetland Sheepdog sheds fur.

2003 Alfa Romeo Spider

Mazda and Fiat Auto are teaming up to develop a small rear-wheel-drive sports car that will be sold as the next-generation MX-5 Miata and as the first new Alfa Romeo Spider since the 1996-2010 model. The project was announced in late May 2012 with a joint statement by Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne and Mazda Chairman Takashi Yamanouchi. The plan is to develop “two differentiated, distinctly styled, iconic, and brand-specific lightweight roadsters. . . . The Mazda and Alfa Romeo variants will each be powered by specific proprietary engines unique to each brand.”
