MX-5 to Monterey: a 3,000 Mile Journey
Sep 01, 2014 - 8:20 AM - by
by Mike Schlee
At AutoGuide we love road trips. Any chance there is to drive somewhere instead of walk/fly/boat, we take it.
I may be the guiltiest party here. Aside from my yearly adventures with the charity organization Rally North America, I’ll take any opportunity to get behind the wheel and drive.

So, when I got an invitation to attend the world debut of the 2016 Mazda MX-5 in Monterey, California, an evil plan started to form in my head. What if I drove the current generation MX-5 to Monterey to see the unveiling of the new 2016 model? Not only would this be a home coming of sorts for the car, but the weekend following the debut is an event called Miatas at Mazda Raceway, in which MX-5 owners from all over the world are coming for a three-day Miata love-in. Aside from activities on and off the track, there will be a world record attempt on Friday featuring roughly 1,600 Miatas in attendance.

3,000 Miles? No Problem!

I rang up Mazda immediately and laid out my scheme. I was hoping to borrow a 2014 MX-5 to drive out to Monterey. Oh, and did I mention I live on the east coast and the drive would be a 3,000 mile jaunt? For some manufacturers, the idea of driving a tiny roadster to Monterey may border on lunacy. Mazda, however, responded with a “Hell Ya!” (Ok, I may have paraphrased that.)
I’ve already hit the road, leaving Toronto, Canada today on my way to Harrisburgh, PA to pick-up my co-driver for the adventure, Tony Intrieri, Operations Manager of Rally North America.
You can follow the adventure in real-time on twitter, @AutoGuide, or send us a message; we’ll have a lot of time to answer your tweets during the long drive west. As well, we will also be updating our adventure daily, live on using storify like we did during the Under $30,000 Performance Car Shootout and the Mazda Adventure Rally.
While in Monterey, I will also get the chance to drive heritage models of the Miata, partake in the Skip Barber racing school and participate in the MX-5 world record attempt.

2016 Mazda MX-5 to Debut Sept 3rd at Laguna Seca
Jul 03, 2014 - 7:27 AM - by

Mazda will officially introduce the next-generation of its popular MX-5 roadster on September 3rd at one of the world’s most famous racetracks: Laguna Seca.

Officially known as Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, the unveiling will come during an annual Miata enthusiast event known as Miatas at Mazda Raceway.

WHAT WE KNOW: 2016 Mazda MX-5

“We’re excited to make this official, to announce that the newest member of the MX-5 Miata family will be arriving soon,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, Mazda North American Operations (MNAO). “Along with our colleagues around the world, we continue to celebrate the MX-5′s 25th anniversary and look forward to sharing even more news in the near future.”

Mazda will in fact host several simultaneous global reveals of the car, with debuts also occurring in Japan and Spain.

In March, Mazda revealed the car’s new Skyactiv chassis at the New York Auto Show, announcing that the 2016 MX-5 will be both smaller and lighter than the current model. The car will weigh at least 220 lbs less than the current car.

Should I Buy a Used Mazda Miata?
Jun 19, 2014 - 8:41 PM - by

In 1990 Mazda introduced a back-to-basics sports car. Utilizing the same philosophy as British roadsters did in the 1950s and 1960s; the MX-5 Miata was a lightweight, front engine roadster that offered moderate power, a well-balanced chassis and top down motoring fun.

The big difference between the MX-5 and English roadsters of old was reliability. Mazda finally made a budget sports car that could be driven day-in and day-out without issue.

Initially available with a 1.6-liter engine, the MX-5 Miata received a mid-cycle refresh in 1994 and the addition of more power thanks to a larger 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. Through the entire run of the first generation Miata, pop-up headlights and a manually retracting roof were featured.
