When the Miata was introduced in the summer of 1989 conventional wisdom said nobody wanted an inexpensive sports car. So much for conventional wisdom. . . . The Miata not only captured the hearts of driving enthusiasts longing for the days of the classic British roadster, it became the must-have fashion accessory of the day. In the beginning dealers routinely charged, and people willingly paid, thousands above the suggested retail price for Mazdas little roadster. Miata entered its second generation in 1999, when it was totally redesigned. More than 500,000 Miatas have been sold worldwide since it was introduced, the most sales ever for a two-seat roadster.

A modern classic
Pros: Handling, fun, affordability, surprising practicality
Cons: Loud, tight fit for people over 6', fussy boot cover
Anyone looking for a sports car needs to benchmark a Miata. At this price its closest rival is the Toyota MR2 Spyder, but the Miata is the complete package. Read More at Epinions.com

Let IT take you there...
Pros: Mazda, and part owner Ford, keeps listening and improving the Miata for the owner.
Cons: Must space progeny by 16 years. Replace the 16 year old with baby. KEEP CAR.
Mazda listened to the owners of the previous generation Miata and successfully improved one of the greatest roadsters of all time. The 2001 only gets better. Read More at Epinions.com

Pros: Good looks, great ride, plenty of power, HANDLES LIKE ON RAILS!!
