MX-5 GT Sort of Gets the Green Light

Kit will be available to retrofit existing MX-5s

During the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2012 an interesting Mazda MX-5 GT was unveiled producing 203 hp from a naturally aspirated engine. Since it would take too long to get a factory built MX-5 GT ready for the road company called Jota will be offering a kit to turn standard MX-5 cars into the GT version.

The standard car produces 157 hp and Jota claims there kit will increase that to 203 hp with nothing but a computer reprogram and some exhaust changes. The power promises sound a bit far-fetched.

Buyers with more money will be able to buy a brand-new MX-5 with the special kit already installed. The car will have a three year warranty and is expected to sell for under £30,000.

Oct 2 2014 11:01am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

The focal point of the Mazda stand was the MX-5 (I still cannot think of it by any other name than Miata regardless of how hard Mazda push the new name). When the original was launched in 1989, few would have guessed it would go on to enjoy popularity and have such staying power. It was, after all, a two-seat roadster entering a dying market. Click here for full coverage of the 2014 Paris Motor Show The latest generation continues with Mazda’s KODO design philosophy. It has a tight, lithe lo ...

Aussie Specs for the ND Mazda MX-5 Leak

Sep 15 2014 4:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

The world debut of the fourth-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata back on September 3rd wasn’t as much a debut as much as it was a “Hey, what’s up, world! This is what I look like” event. It didn’t give us anything more than a look at the MX-5’s new body. That would have been fine for any other car, but this is the Miata we’re talking about here. The full details of the sports roadster are expected to be announced at the Paris Motor Sho ...
