Miata owners may want to give the new-generation model a shot.
A photo gallery from a Miata forum shows just how close to the original the car came.
Here are a few photos of the Miata from the forums of the Japanese automaker.
Miata fans will appreciate this photo of the rear wheel, with the front wheel painted in red.
Miata’s first production car was a sporty car with a red nose, a blue rear end, and a white front bumper.
The Miata was the first car built with a manual transmission and featured a five-speed manual transmission.
The original Miata, a first generation, 4-door sedan, was available with a 6.4-liter V8 engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The first generation car was available only with the manual transmission but was discontinued after just one year.
