Mazda announced it was pricing its base 2006 Miata MX-5 at $21,435, $663 less than 2005. Not a bad antidote for price creep, especially in the face of a redesign. Oh, you wanted an even better deal? Then pick up an SCCA-ready, club-spec Miata for a paltry $20,435 and give those orange cones the what-what.

· Touring Edition (five-speed manual): $22,435

·Sport: $22,935
·Grand Touring: $24,435
(Six-speed stick standard on Sport and Grand Touring; add +$1,100 for six-speed auto)

·Limited (6-speed): $26,700
