We Track Two Competitors At the Annual Gathering Of Miatas at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca

Carolyn and Kyle may have very different backstories, but the same competitive spirit fuels their fire to race Miatas. We head to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca to document the dramatic story of these Miata owners racing their convertibles on this historic California track.

Mazda has an all-new advertising campaign in the US that focuses on the new slogan: Driving Matters. It's supposed to say something about both Mazda engineering and being behind the wheel of one of the company's vehicles.

A Historically Accurate Fourth Generation That Moves Us

We get our first taste of the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata in a pre-production, Japanese-spec model. Senior Editor Steven Ewing puts the new Miata through its paces along the gorgeous backroads of Spain.

British tuner BBR is already hard at work at trying to squeeze more power from the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata's 2.0-liter SkyActiv four-cylinder engine. The company thinks that the mill can make around 200 horsepower without even adding any forced induction.

We've seen the diminutive Mazda MX-5 Miata swallow plenty of big engines, but New Zealand drifting ace "Mad Mike" Whiddett is roaring into where-no-man-has-gone-before territory. Wanting to replace his 515-horsepower "MADBUL" RX-7 and its twin-turbocharged, three-rotor 20B engine, his new ride is an NC-series Miata with four rotors and twin Garrett turbochargers courtesy of Pulse Performance Race Engineering. It is called "RADBUL," and expected power at standard boost is 1,200 hp, but the builde

We're not going to lie to you. The reason you're seeing the fourth-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata on these pages again is solely because this is the first time we're seeing the roadster displayed in a color other than the ruby shade it was first shown in.

Either way, th

Earlier this month, our friends across the pond at Auto Express released the first in a two-video series that would see them try and build up a second-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata that could best a standard Porsche Boxster around the track. While that first video detailed the mods to the MX-5 – a supercharger, some suspension upgrades and a new set of super-sticky rubber being chief among them – and set baseline lap times for the stock car, today, we have the results of the 5,000-poun

See The Roadster Through Mazda Design Boss Derek Jenkins' Eyes

By now, you've likely read what we think of the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata's new looks both inside and out, and you've probably poured over the available photos and started to make up your own mind about the roadster's radically more aggressive new appearance.
