Everyone knows the MX-5. It’s that fun little roadster that you always promised yourself, and so much has been written about it already. But it’s hard to over emphasise the impact this car had when it launched. At a time when cars were focusing on more and more horsepower, supercharging to ever more extreme levels, Mazda proved that you don’t need an exotic engine to have a lot of fun. Cars already had enough power for public roads where you spent most of your time anyway. It wasn’t about miles per gallon, but smiles per gallon! So, where did the vision for the MX-5 come from, and has it stayed true to that founding vision?
