Almost unnoticed, the Mazda MX5 has turned twenty. Although introduced in 1989, the quirky sports car came on the market in 1990. We have now arrived at the third generation of this unsurpassed blockbuster.
The first MX5 came on the market as Miata. Do you remember that we were the first in the Netherlands to make a driving report of the MX5, long before the national press could pay attention to it? That was because your scribe was driving a race series in Canada and such a cart became available. We will dig up those photos. Maybe it's nice to print it again? To honor this milestone, Mazda has launched a special Limited Edition. It was shown for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in early March.
