Here's the ultimate new classic. This 1993 Mazda MX-5 Miata is a survivor-grade, 2-owner original that's been well-maintained with 112k miles on the clock. But more than just low mileage for its age, this Miata has been a cherished classic from day one. That's why it's truly for someone who loves a factory-spec car from the '90s that's considered by enthusiasts to be one of the best budget driving machines ever made.
Mazda called this color Classic Red, and that's because it's the hue we all love on a cool roadster. The factory paint retains a good shine (although a few spots are beginning to fade a bit), and that's what really gets us excited about this Miata. Just like the muscle cars out there, these roadsters have been chopped up and altered because they are so much fun on the racetrack and backroads. So to find one that has not been tainted or harmed all its life is a true gem. It retains the svelte proportions that make these a spiritual successor to the best Europe had to offer. The body is precision straight, just how the Japanese made it, and even the wheels have avoided most curbs. The black folding roof likely hasn't been used much, as it is good condition with no rips or tears, and even if it wasn't, who wants to drive this little racer with the top up anyway?
The interior is just as dialed-in as the exterior, showing only slight fading and providing plenty of comfortable support for both driver and passenger. The pair of black cloth buckets have the kind of comfort and bolstering that lets you know every inch of this car was expertly engineered by Japanese engineers that envisioned the whole world throwing these little roadsters into the corners with reckless abandon. The driver gets a grippy leather-wrapped steering wheel with the safety of an airbag, and beyond that is a full gauge pack with clear markings and even a touch of chrome around the speedo and tach. This is motoring pleasure for two, and that's why you get comfort features such as the original AM/FM/cassette stereo, power windows, and ice-cold air conditioning. Out back is a surprisingly spacious trunk for a car this size, so pack smart and take this little guy coast-to-coast!
Even if you buy this one as a survivor to show off the relatively low mileage, it will be tough to resist adding a few more miles onto the odometer. The first-generation Miata was all about the purity of the driving experience. The original 1.6-liter DOHC fuel-injected motor was precision engineered to rev freely and sound great doing it. It's everything you love about the classic European driving experience, but this time with bulletproof reliability. The sport-tuned suspension and four-wheel disc brakes are part of a harmonious package that makes the car feel like an extension of you as it instantly reacts to the road. But more than just great for a quick country road trip, this one has been well-maintained to make sure you're comfortable no matter the distance. That's thanks to features like power steering, cruise control, and the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive.
Original paint, original interior, and original motor...there's probably nothing more fun to buy at this price point, yet alone this dependable too. You even get the original owner's manuals and the maintenance records to boot. But don't take too long deciding, because you clean stocker Miatas like this don't come around all that often these days. Call today!!!
