I think a RF 124 Spider would be nice to have as an option for those that want it, but I'll stick with my soft top. I test drove a ST and RF ND back-to-back, and the buttress wind buffeting on the RF was a deal breaker.

Looks **** a Datsun 240-60-80 Z may have been sold as a Nissan 300 in N America...

I think it looks great. But I would still take the Spider with the ragtop. I already own another vehicle with a hardtop.

My opinion also but it still looks better then the MX in my opinion. Most people don’t even know what the difference between a roadster and a sports car, all roadsters are sports cars not all sports cars are roadsters and that’s what I like.

Looks a lot like a Toyota 86 to me.

I thought Mazda discontinued production. Is this a Photoshop job or real?

Bad photochop. The color doesn't even match, most likely copy/pasted from a Miata hardtop.

From this angle it looks a bit more cohesive than the MX5 but then I can't cope with the frontal look of that car (or the rear if it comes to that). More complexity, more weight, more cost with the added annoyance that people can start legitimately calling it a convertible, which it ain't. I prefer roadsters, long may they remain.

P.S. On my registration papers the 124 is described as a "convertible", which I find irritating but there appears to no other term in the governments database.

As a pure grand touring coupe, yes. As a retractable targa top, absolutely not.

I think a retractable Targa-style top would look awesome but would it upset the weight distribution of the car?

I am very happy to settle for the Carbon-fibre clip-in roof, however, at £4,465 ($6,200) I would have to save up for a very long time! :(

CF roofs are on sale a few times a year on Mopar. I got mine for about £3400 and a few other guys on here too.

Still not cheap of course, but it stings a little less.

I personally don't mind it, as the winters in my neck of the woods are rough and I don't feel I'd be as worried about my Spider's top being protected. I also think it looks better than the Mazda. Whereas the Mazda looks like an angry cat, this sure looks Italian...
