Here's our last video of the year in celebration of our fourth birthday! It was one of the hardest 0-60 tests yet but we finally got it on the sixth try. The MX-5: The MX-5, also known as Miata (a name that means "reward" in Old High German), was introduced in 1989 utilizing the Jinba ittai design meaning that the car would be as light weight as possible with minimal mechanical complexity limited only by legal and safety requirements. This handling mindset was carried across all three generations. The first generation sold over 400000 units from 1989 to 1997. It made use of a 1.6 I4 engine to 1993 and a 1.8 L after that. The first generation (NA) is known for its characteristic pop up headlights. The second generation (NB) was launched in 1998 with it's major changes including fixed headlights and a slight power increase. In 2005 the third generation (NC) was introduced with a new 2.0 L engine. The MX-5 is the best selling convertible ever with numbers breaking 900000 MX-5s ever sold. It has won many awards over the years including Wheels Magazine 's Car of the Year for 1989 and 2005; Sports Car International's "best sports car of the 1990s" and "ten best sports cars of all time"; 2005-2006 Car of the Year Japan; and 2005 Australian Car of the Year - and making Car and Driver magazine's annual Ten Best list 10 times.
