The Ultimate Car Collection #68; 1989 Mazda MX-5 / Miata

 

The MX5's first generation, the NA, sold over 400,000 units from 1989 to 1997 with a 1.6 L straight-4 engine to 1993 and a 1.8 L engine thereafter  it is recognizable by its pop-up headlights.

 It  was launched at a time when production of small roadsters had almost come to an end, the Alfa Romeo Spider was the only comparable volume model in production at the time of the MX-5's launch. Just a decade earlier, a host of similar models notably the MG B, Triumph TR7, Triumph Spitfire, and Fiat Spider had been available. The MX5 reinvented the genre and had the market to itself.

Clarkson: 'The fact is that if you want a sports car, the MX-5 is perfect. Nothing on the road will give you better value. Nothing will give you so much fun. The only reason Im giving it five stars is because I cant give it fourteen'
