Mazda Builds 1 Millionth MX-5
26 Avril 2016 - Autoblog
Mazda produced its 1 millionth MX-5 Miata on April 22. Known alternately as the Miata, the Mazda Roadster, or the Eunos Roadster, the MX-5 has long-held the record as the best-selling open-top two-seat sports car.
It topped half a million at the turn of the millennium, and hit 800,000 less than a decade ago. It recently entered its fourth generation over 27 years, which only promises to drive that record-number higher.
While it's not one of the most prolific automobiles in history – Ford has made over 34 million F-Series pickups and Toyota produced over 40 million Corollas – the Mazda Miata stands as a rather notable exception among niche performance vehicles.
