It could be the greatest MX-5 ever.
The next Mazda MX-5 is just around the corner so that means it’s time for some special editions of the outgoing third-gen model. We’ve always been fans of the MX-5 (this writer learned to drive stick in one) because for over 20 years it’s remained true to itself and all of those British roadsters of yesteryear. It’s Japanese-built, meaning it’s reliable as a tank, unlike, say, MGBs which were known to endlessly leak oil. Even turning on its radio could potentially result in one being electrocuted.
The MX-5 has no such horror stories, and for years fans have been clamoring for a shooting brake variant. Rendering artist Theophilus Chin has cooked up an image of what it could look like based on the current MX-5. We love it, but it’ll sadly never happen. Why? Because Mazda feels the MX-5’s image would be damaged if it were anything but a roadster. We beg to differ, and we’ll continue to keep pushing Mazda on this one.
