mx-5

Mazda’s severed ties with Ford and recent shift to a single, scalable platform have birthed a series of noteworthy products, but there’s one major question mark left in the company’s portfolio.

It still isn’t clear what Mazda plans to do for either of its performance nameplates. Information on the next MX-5 is still scarce, but a new report suggests Mazda plans for its new roadster to weight in 220 lbs lighter than the current car.

That’s significant considering the current car only weighs 2,447 lbs when equipped with the soft top and a manual transmission. Both the convertible hard top and the automatic transmission add weight.

Mazda will partner with Fiat to build the car, which will lead to both a new MX-5 and a new Spider for Alfa Romeo. While Mazda hasn’t made details about the car availble, past speculation suggests the car will be powered by a turbocharged 1.3-liter four cylinder rather than the 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four it uses today. That, at least in part, could help account for the weight savings.
