The car is stunning. Mazda did to the Miata what Chevy did to the Corvette, it's that good.
The video does more justice to the lines of the car than the still photos. I can't wait to see this in person, and if there is an easy, reliable way to get these to 275-300 WHP, a big if, and if it drives as well as it looks, it may be too tempting to pass on.

It does have a little F-type going on, a little 370Z going on up front, and a nod to the old Z3 with the slightly raised rump in the rear, with some nice Alfa curves thrown in. The headlights give it a more muscular look compared to the older models. It all works.

I think the headlamps could be a little bigger... That has always been kind of a MX-5 trademark.

And yeah no posts from MiataMark yet, he is probably changing his drawers!

Just got back from driving my Miata.

Pretty sure I'm keeping my original.

I like it, but why did they make it more bigger? Once again we see a car can be made good looking & still pass the pedestrian regs.
