The 2016 Mazda Miata, the newer, lighter, sexier, and better-er version of the classic roadster. And today on Live With Kelly And Michael (don't ask why I'm watching that) the price was announced as $24,915. Not too bad.

Of course, that's the base price of our new automotive savior, which means it'll be the stripped down version without the nav and other pricey features. Basically, it'll be the perfectly equipped Miata.

What you are getting is a 155 horsepower Skyactiv engine and a car that has lost 150 pounds to get down to a sprightly 2,332 pounds. Lookin' good, Miata.


Now we just need to drive it. And soon.

Update: $24,950 doesn't include destination, so the price will end up being $25,735 according to Automobile. Also, an earlier version of this story said that the car would cost $24,950. I blame Kelly Ripa laughing and my closed captioning not understanding their voices.
