Here’s Why the Original Mazda Miata Is a Legend

I drive an NA eunos roadster s special it's basically the same as this but with silver wheels instead of the gold ones and with the 1.6l engine. I had only been driving the car for about 2 weeks and a van pulled out of his lane into mine and I wasn't so lucky. Just had to replace the passenger wing. But all the little extras you get improve handling, nothing adds to the power. That just shows that Mazda knew what car they were building. Not a rocket but it can keep up with the best down country roads. One of friends drives a Porsche boxter and even he can't pull away from the little Mazda. It was my dream car as a kid and the day I first sat in mine is one of the best days of my life

The spare tire and battery are both in the trunk. My understanding is that they are mounted diagonally to the driver for weight distribution. The Miata in the video is right hand drive but the tire and battery are still on the right side. Anyone else hear it this way? I had a '96, '99, and an '03.

As a long time NA Miata owner I couldn't agree more with the small car "other people are driving like they're trying to kill you" mentality. I've literally had dozens of near misses where other drivers haven't seen me or have ignored my positioning on the road despite being in a bright red car. Maybe stripes are in order...

So many things wrong with this video. So much depends on who bought the car from new. I've had 5 Mx5's and each one was a different spec ( power steering, electric windows, air-con, cabin lighting above windscreen or on the dash, different wheels, different interior, badges on the front etc...)

Not certain about the Eunos, but the 1993 LE model has power mirrors and cruise control. The car in this video has power windows. One nice design feature is that the window switches are in the center of the car, removing wiring from the doors and reducing the number of window switches required.

I would love to see you do a video on the 1999 Miata. The ear before the engines became VVT engines. The 99 engine has incredible possibilities. It's my favorite car of all time, set up properly. You should try one with a supercharger in it making 200hp at the wheels

this is a 93. the 94 got a bigger engine and it made a big difference because of the low weight. With a Racing Beat exhaust and intake and ceramic headers it sounded awesome and was plenty quick off the line compared to this 93. now add a set of KYB adjustable shocks, Flyin Miata rear strut mounts increase suspension travel and their Flyin Miata springs and you had a HUUUUGE upgrade over stock and frankly better handling than just about any sports car of that era under six figures, ALL German brands included. cosmetically there were some great kits like the Racing Beat and low profile headlights that replaced the giant headlights with four smaller ones. the downside was the dreaded lifter tap that made a racket at idle. At $2 a gallon it cost $20 to fill the tank and have a lot of fun at the autocross or track.
