I want this badly . . .




So long as they also fix the stupidly close ratios in the gearbox.

Haha gear ratios so true.

They really need to come out with a Mazdaspeed Miata first... It is ridiculous that they haven't come out with one yet.

They have, it was turbo charged.

I think he means for the NC/ND Miata.

I am talking about how the current generation needs one.

So basically the MS-3 engine?

I would rather have the standard 170 bhp engine in a sub-1,000 kg Miata than one with to much power.

While the ND is pretty nice (never was an NC fan), I'm really looking forward to the NE...1.6 sky-G with about 150-160 HP and ~2200-2300 pounds. Sign me the fuck up for that!

I like power, but I think modern cars have far too much of it.

Given the choice to add lightness or power, I'll choose the one that improves handling, fuel economy and lap times.

F10 M5 is a perfect example. They felt a need (probably under pressure from the marketing department) to increase the power figures instead of decreasing the weight. As a result every road test I have read says: "Great car, but it feels too heavy."

QFT. My dad just bought a 3.5 V6 Accord, and despite having nearly 100hp more than my 207, it isn't any faster or any more fun to drive. Apples and oranges I know, but the current Accord is probably the best example of a car getting much larger and much more powerful than it needs to be.

Also, I love this Miata. I'd rather Mazda build a stripped-down version than a more powerful version

It would be so much nicer if it came with a decent hardtop.

^+1, I like everything but the top on it.
