Hooniverse Asks: Will There Ever Be Another Miata?

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata and 1990 Mazda MX-5 Miata As we all know, the answer to almost every automotive question these days is invariably “Miata.” What’s a good car for a recent college grad? Miata. What car will best quell a mid-life crisis but without also a mid-life trip to the poorhouse? Miata there too. What about if I want to dip my toes into the racing pool? Well, you’re damn right a Miata will fit the bill there as well. Mazda may have channeled a slew of sports cars from history past, everything from the MBG to the Lotus Elan, but they managed to distill their essence in a ride that is almost universally beloved. And – since there’s almost 30 years worth of production under the belt – one that’ll fit nearly any budget. You little girls with your lemonade stand being the exception. Don’t worry, your time will come. The question for today is, what else will come. I mean, do you think there will ever be a car like the Miata, one that fits so many enthusiast’s niches? Or, are we experiencing a unique and wonderful run by a car that will never have an equal?
