Introduced 25 years ago, the latest fourth generation Mazda MX-5 Miata was announced today in Japan. It is all new and slated to hit global markets in 2015. Known as the Mazda Roadster in Japan, the MX-5 Miata holds the Guinness World Record for the best-selling two-seater sports car. Affordability and its nimble chassis made it a hit worldwide with total production volume exceeding 940,000 units, as of July 2014, according to Mazda.
