Surprise! Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Arrives in the US Early

The 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF is officially on sale in the U.S.

Arriving two months earlier than originally announced, the first MX-5 RF owner was Dave Putter, who met with Mazda North America president and CEO Masahiro Moro onstage at the 2016 L.A. Auto Show. Putter’s MX-5 RF was air-freighted to Huntington Beach Mazda, where he took delivery. Approximately 500 additional MX-5 RFs will arrive nationwide beginning in early December, with wider-scale availability coming through winter and spring.

    Awesome. Congrats to the new owner. Encouraging to see them come earlier and also by a guy my size. I have hope.

    The ND seat rails are on a slant so it is roomier than it looks

    Hi Dave – I belong to MiataNet and am compiling a list of RF LE’s. I am also an RF LE MT Owner. Since you are the first LE delivered in the US it would be great help for the forum if we could confirm you VIN. Mine is 0736 and my watch is 205 🙂

    I tink you have the wrong guy, I got the first Club in Austin, and it is a ragtop.
