The Mazdaspeed Miata was a limited-run production of the second generation Miata, and is most notable for being the only production MX-5 to come with a turbocharger. The Mazdaspeed’s turbo and relatively small production run make some consider it to be a collectible, but does it really deserve that status?
I’m not under any illusions about how this story will be used. It’s going to be presented as evidence by hopeful gearhead parents who desperately want to convince the other parent that, somehow, in the face of all logic, a two-seater roadster like the new 2016 Mazda Miata makes sense with kids. I’m not promising any…
Look, we at Jalopnik are sort of biased when it comes to the small, light, honest, pure, emotional, exciting, intuitive, and interactive small roadster that is the Mazda Miata. Knowing how good each generation of the car has been, does the new one hold up as a pure expression of driving enthusiasm?
This is the range-topping Mazda MX-5 “Sport Recaro,” based on the 2.0 liter Sport Nav spec MX-5. It comes in Soul Red or Ceramic Metallic and gets black accents on the exterior and heated Recaro seats and red stitching on the interior. Mazda is making 600 and, for now, none are destined for the U.S. (via AutoGuide)
Looking forward to purchasing a 2016 Mazda Miata MX-5? Well, if you happen to live in Japan, have the yen, and police proof of a parking space, you totally can. Called the Roadster here in the land of the rising sun, the newest version of everyone’s favorite answer goes on sale tomorrow, Thursday May 21st.
There’s something wonderful about taking car and distilling it down to the very essence of what makes it great to begin with. Do that to a Cadillac Seville, you get a velour sofa. Do it to a GT-R, you get a robot with rocket boots. Do it to the new Miata, and you get this: the Miata Club Edition.
We all desperately want Mazda to make the sports cars of our dreams. We've got one and we're constantly pining for another. But let's not forget that when Mazda was cranking out turbocharged RX-7s, it was also on the brink of yet another disaster, and among the things that saved them was making damn good cars for the…
The Mazda Miata hasn't really been a stripped-down, bare-bones roadster for years, but for 2016 it's packing a raft of safety and convenience features, most of which should be optional. (We hope.)
Hey everyone! Mazda just tweeted out that the next generation of the greatest car ever made, the MX-5 Miata will debut on September 3rd! I can't even contain my excitement!
Brodie Brittain Racing (BBR) Ltd, creator of the original turbocharged Mazda MX-5 in 1990, is proud to announce the launch of its most potent package yet - the Mazda MX-5 GT270.
LONDON, August 20, 2013. Mazda UK is renewing its annual partnership with Britain's fastest race track for the ninth year in a row, supplying a trio of cars to Thruxton Racing Circuit for use during the venue's popular 'Experience Days'.
Automakers are at their best when they are at their boldest. Building unconventional cars, entering into markets that are new to them, trying their hands at a different form of auto racing, creating some ridiculous niche vehicle — that's when they make the cars that people remember decades down the road, even if they…
If you pose the question "what kind of car should I get" to anyone here on Jalopnik, the answer will invariably be "Miata," no matter what you need to do. Towing something? Miata. Date? Miata. First car? Miata. Moving to Alaska? Miata.
Much of the new time travel/crime thriller Looper takes place in the year 2044, but it's not exactly an optimistic vision of the future.
The latest iteration of Mazda's KODO design language lands on the refreshed MX-5 Miata, replacing its Derpy smiling face with something slightly more aggressive. This upgrade is only for Japan now, but we're hoping and expecting it'll arrive here for the MX-5's next model year.
Greetings, proud German owner of this first generation Mazda Miata. The sentiment is appreciated, but please note that the Miata is one of those rare Japanese cars based not on a German car but a British one.
Always wanted the reliability and fun of a Miata but didn't care for the styling or naturally aspirated of one in stock form? If so, this 2000 Mazda MX-5 Miata fitted with an aftermarket body and supercharged engine could be the small roadster of your dreams.
Mazda will only build 750 of these MX-5 Special Editions, essentially loaded models with some special paint colors. Outside of an auto show, this may be about as close as you can get to the $30,000 version of l'il Smiley.
