The fourth generation MX-5 is starting to shape up nicely, with Mazda
and Alfa Romeo
collaborating on the new vehicle and each to get its own version. British publication What Car? claims to have the skinny, reporting that the new Miata will incorporate a 200hp turbocharged 1.3-liter four when it goes on sale in 2015. After years of having the segment mostly to itself, Mazda is keeping an eye on the Subaru BRZ
and Scion FR-S
, aiming to trim a good 100 kg from the current model's curb weight to keep it down to around 1,000 kg.
