1989 Mazda MX-5 Miata roadster

Since its global introduction at the Chicago Auto Show in February 1989, the Mazda MX-5 has endeared itself to more than a million owners around the world. Known as the Miata in the USA, the nimble and agile rear-wheel drive two-seat sports car has earned the admiration of people from various countries, cultures and age groups. With four model generations in three decades, the lightweight, top-down roadster developed by Mazda has been recognized as the Best-Selling Sports Car in the World by the Guinness World Records. After the One-Millionth MX-5 rolled out of the Hiroshima factory in 2016, it has truly established for itself a solid reputation as a driver’s favorite.
