Mazda Miatas Invade Tokyo Auto Salon 2016

The ND JDM trends you've been waiting for.

Jan 20, 2016

Sure, the Mazda MX-5 Miata hasn't had the best rep through the years. To some it's a "girly" car, still others see it as a poor man's Honda S2000. But when you actually stop and think about it, the Miata is the perfect recipe for true car people, with its rear-wheel-drive setup, proper manual transmission, and a price tag that won't leave you eating instant ramen for the rest of your life. It's only been a few months since the latest Miata was released, but an event like Tokyo Auto Salon - where the MX-5 is showcased - illustrates the roadster might just be the next hot platform.

Greddy and Blitz already have turbo kits in the works to make your ND roadster even more fun to drive. Carbing has titanium strut bars to stiffen up the chassis. You've probably already seen images on the Internet floating around of your favorite widebody makers having a crack at the 'vert', such as Aimgain or Pandem (aka Rocket Bunny), but in the photo gallery are some other options you guys might want to check out.

You can kiss those bad stereotypes goodbye. This might be the generation Miata that will give it the status it deserves - one of a genuine sports car. Hey Mazda, feel free to send one to our offices!
