This wee missive just came down from the Mazda press office:

Mazda Motor Corporation will use the 2006 British International Motor Show for its global reveal of the new Mazda MX-5, now equipped with a power retractable hard top roof.

Word is the new version — to be known in the states as the Mazda MX-5 (Miata) Power Retractable Hard Top, or MMMPRHT — will cost $2,000 to $3,000 over the base MX-5's price tag and have little available trunk space. No word yet on the weight liability.
