Mazda is excited to announce that the new Miata is shaping up to be a great evolution of one of the most prolific and popular roadsters of all time. This time, this fourth generation Miata will have less weight, and more power for the base Miata, plus a stripped out, hardcore variant available for enthusiasts.
Oh, and did we mention the most alluring rumor of all? The new Miata will boast a 1.3 liter, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine when it goes on sale in a couple of years. The new engine will have over 170 HP, lower weight, better handling and improved acceleration.
The Mazda Miata has always been an enthusiast's car, and a popular roadster, as well [Ed. Note: Isn't it the most popular roadster of all time in terms of sales?]. This new fourth generation should really excite the fans and stimulate more interest in what has to be the best little sports car available for the money.
