Mazda MX-5 Spyder, Speedster Concepts Teased for SEMA

Both are "significantly lighter" than the 2,332-pound fourth-gen. Miata currently available.

Mazda will debut two new concept Miatas at this year's Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas. The automaker says that the 2016 MX-5 Spyder Concept and 2016 MX-5 Speedster Concept are both "significantly lighter" than the 2,332-pound fourth-generation Miata currently available at dealerships.

In a new teaser image, Mazda previews what we can expect on these specially crafted Miatas. On one half of this image, Mazda gives us an aerial view of the Spyder, which features bespoke leather materials and a New Mercury Silver paint job. The other side of the image previews the Speedster, which harkens back to the topless sports cars of yesteryear with its minimalist design approach. Perhaps to save weight, the model foregoes a traditional windshield in favor of a lighter deflector.

The Miata concepts showcase both conceptual aftermarket parts and aftermarket parts that buyers can purchase at dealerships. Some of the parts come from American Sunroof Corporation, KW Suspensions, Long Road Racing, SIM Specialty Interior Manufacturing, and a host of other specialty companies.

Mazda isn't saying exactly how light these vehicles are, but we expect the models feature plenty of performance and aerodynamic upgrades. We'll learn much more about the modified Miatas when the SEMA Show begins November 3.
