Why Did No One Ever Tell Me About This?




How cool is that thing? One produced, ever. Miata hardtop. I wonder if it's actually ever been driven, or if it has just been kept locked away because of how rare it is.

If it is a 1 of 1 then mileage couldn't effect value.

Just try and find one with less miles

There's more than one Miata Coupe. Mazda built a small number for the JDM during the second generation:

This one's my fav:

I don't see how it's a girls car. They are awesome on track and autox. Just a cool, cheap, fun car overall.

I did a 350 swap into a junkyard Miata. The thing was a beast and made a fool out of so many people that thought it just was a junker cause of how it idled. Also built up an MX5 with a Jackson Racing SC for autocross. It cornered like it was on rails.

it may have originally been marketed aser that sweet little convertible a 16 year old girl wants, but when things like monster miata get thrown into the mix the car becomes, for all intents and purposes, the closest thing we've had to a shelby cobra since the original

small, balanced foreign roadster with a good chassis and handling
+
big honking ford V8 with more power than the original mill could dream of

what else could you want?!


i swear someday im going to build a miata with a 427W and that will probably be the car that kills me lol

I remember seeing the NA version coupe in a magazine years ago. Was hoping Mazda would build it for the US market. There was also another first-gen modified into a coupe by a JDM tuner shop for the Tokyo Auto Salon that had headlights like the Porsche 993 that were blended into the fenders - thought that was really sweet.
