30th Anniversary MX-5

Mazda are revealing a 30th Anniversary Edition MX-5 tomorrow (Feb 7th)

Will be interesting to see if this is just an ND with special edition trim, or an indicator of a new model. I suspect it's the former as they are only making 3000 worldwide, but any significant changes would suggest an imminent demise of the 124.

Maybe they’ll give it the carbon hardtop of the Abarth GT.

Probably just a plaque, BBS wheels and special colour...

The Miata guys are forecasting a unique orange color with special trim. We’ll see in a few hours.
I think the facts that FCA has stopped adding FIAT dealers and has pulled all advertising (except for last year’s Shaggy & Sting video) have already suggested the demise of the 124, at least in North America.

It's orange.

And he announced a dedication to genuine reproduction parts for the NA generation cars to keep them going.

Nearly half of the 1 million Miatas built in those 30 years were sold in the USA.

HEY FIAT, ARE YOU LISTENING?! Advertise your cars, market your cars, bring them to the people and spread good will and excitement for them.

I love my Spider, but I'm worried for its continued future. Still have not seen another one on the road in my area. I see Miatas all the time- old basket case Miatas, brand new Miatas, stock and customized. Never do I see a Spider, never.

And...... that would be a no !..I grew up with orange cars (it was the 70's) and never again

TBH _ i do think that age of classical proper sports cars is nearly over. The ND and 124 will be last of their line. What few sports cars that exist in production are now vanity projects

I would have excluded Supercars from this statement but SUV !!!
