Chances are we can expect weight balance on the 124 spider to be the same or close as seen in this first ever behind the scene look:

Good engineering obeys the laws of physics. Great engineering defies them.

Take a giant aluminum balance beam… Add 2,332 lbs. of obsessive engineering… See what happens!

I've heard the Miata may get 2 engine options, now I wonder if the 50/50 will hold true for both models. As I said in the other thread if FIAT uses their 1.4T will the plumbing required throw off the balance?

Most definitely...but maybe the Fiat engineers can balance the "plumbing" around and make it close to 50/50 :)

I dont know how much wiggle room they have. It still has to be efficient to manufacture with the MX-5. if the two are to share an assembly line maybe its a mazda motor after all
