This year’s New York Auto Show is going to play host to a birthday party for one of the most iconic two-seat roadsters in the business.
The Mazda MX-5 Miata turns 25 this year, and the Japanese brand is bringing a bevy of historical cars to the 2014 New York Auto Show to celebrate. There will be 15 different Miatas on display, including concepts, race cars and production models, which will sit in their own booth separate from the rest of Mazda.
“MX-5 Miata is the quintessential Mazda,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO. “And after 25 years, every vehicle in the lineup continues to feature some characteristic of MX-5: a fluid shifter, lightness on its feet, quickness around a corner, a fun-to-drive DNA.”
The original car made its global debut on February 9, 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show, the same venue that is expected to host the debut of the new Miata. That car is being developed in collaboration with Alfa Romeo, and will no doubt keep the same philosophy of being a light, fun-to-drive roadster.
