Ok so its a chick car meant for women and gay people blah blah. What many people don't realize is that when the car started to save costs they installed a 1.6 liter engine. So what? The 1.6 liter engine came from the 323 GTX and is actually a turbocharged engine converted to a naturally asperated motor. So it means that its capable of 400 hp on the stock motor. It can boogie that's for sure.

But now that's not all the Miata is about. This car brought back the cheap little british roadster in a big way. Its one of the best handling cars in the world and is light and nimble. So any opinions on this car?

Your poll options are fucking stupid.

"I don't care about gay stigma sign me up"

So true...it's a fantastic, lightweight roadster, with all the spirit of the original Elan, updated for the modern era without losing its way...not the fastest, or most beautiful, or most amazing car ever made, but it's definitely very significant and a lot of fun to drive.

Intended for the American market.
White RSX
They recorded a Triumph's gearchange for this car.

How cool is that?
dukenukem
Its definately a solid cool. I mean it handles and performs beautifully but all said and done its a copy of the Louts Elan so i find it hard to give it a Frozen vote.
BlackJack

The choices suck hard, like Jenna Jameson on a dick! But I'm saying Frozen, why, it hadles superb and for the price it's a real good bang for buck car.
LoudPipe
It looks girly but the skin hides a true sports car

I edited the poll options. They were a bit, gay.

The Miata is a great little car. Looks good and has great handleing. As far as small sports cars go, its always been one of the best and always will be.

Oh come on they aren't that bad! Actually on second view... laugh.gif

Cool. Aren't most soft-tops viewed as hairdresser cars anyway? But this one is different, it has a laid back, but could kick your ass in a second kind of look, which is quality.

Not to mention the fact it was my first car on GT3 and it owned all!!
moe
Frozen. No explanation required.
Keitero-sama
Its got popup headlamps! That's cool +1,
Phix
Frozen.
milkmandan
Two of those pictures are of second gens, but still frozen.

Cool because of the track performance, the "british roadster" template, and the potential for tuning. However, cannot be Frozen IMHO because it unfortunately has that unshakable reputation as a gay/chick car...

...and it's because of people like you which keep that reputation a float.

How do I keep that reputation a float? Because I acknowledge that the car has a reputation? I know it is popular here to denigrate anyone who brings up the dreaded Miata mainstream reputation but it isn't like I'm the one who decided it.

BTW, it is the Cool Wall...I thought a decision here entails more then just the performance of a car but also how the general public views the car. Well, color me crazy but while car enthusiasts like us "get" the Miata, the general public has a very skewed opinion of the car. Like it or not, that opinion is out there even with us screaming about how cool the car is and a racing series specifically designed for the car...do you think it was a coincidence that Mazda distance itself from the Miata name?
