2016 Mazda MX-5 Cup Racer Costs $53k Ready to Race
Factory -built racing cars that are ready to hit the track can be incredibly expensive. Take that M6 GT3 racer from BMW that cost around $430,000 ready to run. For racers on a much (much, much, much) more modest budget, Mazda has rolled out the MX-5 Cup car and the price is nearly affordable at $53,000.

Let’s get this out of the way right up front; no that’s not the Fiat 124 Spider in the image here. That’s the MX-5 our man got to spend some hands on time driving in the mountains not too long ago.

Mazda Still Working on Wankel Rotary Engines: RX-9?

Mazda Still Working on Wankel Rotary Engines: RX-9?
One of the coolest things that Mazda ever did (other than the Miata) is produce its high-revving Wankel rotary engines. That engine powered Mazda RX sports cars going back generations. Word has surfaced from Mazda head Masamichi Kogai that the company still has a team working on improving the Wankel engine.

RingBanana: The Little Miata That Did

RingBanana: The Little Miata That Did
Earlier this month, I talked a bit about a beat up little yellow Mazda Miata that some guys had purchased for 1000 Euros (~$1125 USD), dubbed the RingBanana. Their objective was to make the car hit a 9:00 flat time on the Nürburgring, with as little money invested as possible.

1973 Mazda RX-3 Restomod: ’70s Cool

1973 Mazda RX-3 Restomod: ’70s Cool
I tend to think that the last cool cars of the 1970s came in the first few years of the decade. Cars like the Ford Mustang were at their best until about 1973. Come a year later, they were ugly, underpowered cars that few people want to collect today.

RingBanana: The Little Miata That Could

RingBanana: The Little Miata That Could
I used to have a 1994 MX-5 Miata, known as the NA version to Miata geeks. It was an ugly, caged, turbo race car, with silly pop-up headlights. The reactions were the same at the track, lifted eyebrows and chuckles.

First Drive Review: 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

First Drive Review: 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata
Ever since it was first announced, I’ve been really excited about the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata. Its fresh new design has tremendous visual appeal, and Mazda managed to trim 150 pounds to get the car back to fighting weight after years of gradual bloat.

First Drive Review: 2016 Mazda CX-3
A few years back, the compact crossover market was limited to a couple of vehicles, including the Nissan Juke and Buick Enclave. However, the segment is growing logarithmically, with several new entries on the way in the coming months alone.

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miatas Hit U.S. Shores
We recently saw the first 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miatas as they left port in Japan for the U.S. I’m happy to report that the cars are now here in the states, and should soon be making their way to dealers and customers just as soon as they’re processed through the port.

Review: 2015 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring AWD

Review: 2015 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring AWD
Mazda’s CX-9 sits at the top of the size range for the company’s SUVs. It’s a full seven passenger vehicle, offering tons of space for people and cargo. In addition to space, it’s surprisingly zippy, and handles well for an SUV of its size.

Buy a New MGB that Won’t Burst into Flames or Break!
When I was turning 16, all I could think about when it came to getting my first car was having an old British roadster like an MGB or Triumph. Fast forward a few months and I was the owner of a 1975 Triumph Spitfire with a hard top and rotting interior.

Road and Track Tests the 2016 Mazda MX-5

Road and Track Tests the 2016 Mazda MX-5
I get quite jealous when other writers get to drive cars I want to drive before I do. One of the cars I want to drive the most is the 2016 Mazda MX-5. I know the new model has less power than the old car offered, but anyone who has driven an MX-5 or Miata will tell you power isn’t everything.

Mazda Demos 2016 MX-5’s 50/50 Weight Balance
One of the things that can be difficult to explain to someone in words is what exactly balance is when it comes to a car. I always find that it is much easier to put a student in a car, take them out on the track and let them experience what it feels like when the car is well balanced in high-G corners.
