    The Mazda MX-5 Miata has been subjected to a wide range of engine swaps from motorcycle engines all the way up to V12s.  One of the early V6 swaps was sanctioned by Mazda and almost reached niche production.  The division responsible for this project was M2 Incorporated.  In the early 1990s, Mazda established the skunkworks […]

    The 2022 Mazda MX-5 Miata brings out pure, joyous nostalgia. It reminds you of the adrenaline you experienced the first time you rode a bike without training wheels or drove a light, simple roadster with the top down. There’s no piece of the MX-5 pie that stands out as special, yet everything comes together to […]

    If I look back at the cars that have come through for review over the last fourteen plus years, just about every other year, a Miata/MX-5 makes its way onto the schedule. While that is never a bad thing, at this point, what new is there to say about the MX-5? Miata Is Always The […]

Here in the states, it’s the Miata. Before we get too much further, yes I’ve owned a couple (NB and NC), and I’ve […]

    What’s your favorite type of road? One of mine is a nicely graded stretch of gravel. You don’t need to be going flat out to enjoy your vehicle as the limits come way down, while the fun goes way up. Here are two perfect examples of this idea. In each photo you’ll see a Mazda […]

    Review: Michelin PS4S ultra high-performance summer tires

    |

    Tires can make or break a car. It’s no more apparent than in racing, where in Formula 1 the difference between the “soft” and “hard” tires is as much as 1.5 seconds a lap. That is an eternity. It translates to road cars: Not only do good tires affect the level of cornering grip, but […]

    This week I gave you guys the Woodie Bronco and the Modern Foxbody but what about the monster truck Miata!? This beast is so funny that it actually works. Obviously most people think about the cute little two0seater when they hear Miata so this is basically a physical oxymoron. The cut fenders and massive tires […]

    Friend of Hooniverse Jason Fenske is supercharging his ND Miata. We showed you the install video recently. Jason and his buddy Charles (the Humble Mechanic) installed the supercharger, flashed the ECU, and now Jason is driving his souped-up, more powerful, faster Miata… except it’s not faster. Somehow, it’s now slower. Before the install, Jason performed […]
