Mazda Celebrates 25 Years of the MX-5 Miata

by Kenny Hoeschen

2014 marks the 25th year of Mazda’s two-seat roadster, the wonderful MX-5 Miata. In the 1980s, Mazda had the vision of resurrecting the two-seat, open-top roadsters that had been so popular in the 1960s and 1970s, and the result was the MX-5 Miata. When it was launched at the Chicago Auto Show back in 1989, the Miata was well received by the press and the public. Back then, the base price was just $13,800.  Today, it starts at $23,720.

Over the years, Mazda has continued to refine and improve the car, including two full-redesigns in 1998 and 2005. Having sold more than 920,000 MX-5s since they were first introduced, the car is recognized as holding the Guinness World Record for the world’s best-selling two-seater sports car.
