Well, Mazda is unveiling the new MX-5 at Geneva and some specs have been
leaked. Supposedly it's leaving the 1.8L behind in favor of a 2.0L unit now
and it will produce 160hp and 140tq (and we all know how much fun this car
is now with only 142hp). Only thing is it got bigger, a lot bigger. Best
thing I believe is the new tranny choices. A 6spd manual or 6spd automatic
w/paddle shift. Any expectations on the new turbocharged Mazdaspeed MX-5?
I'm guessing 200hp.
the mazdaspeed miata was last year so i would have to say it wont come around for a last a few more years. they tend to alternate through their cars. I want a mazdaspeed 8 when those come out.... :mrgreen:
What for...it has no extra HP or TQ...it's all suspension and
aesthetics...something you could perfectly do w/o buying a Mazdaspeed
The 2.0 liter is nice and transimissiion too, but it's kinda big, and looks
like S2000 and RX8 mixed together. Can't wait to see some tests.
I'm thinking of buying the 2nd gen miata right now, hope I can get it, because the time I test drove it at the dealership I fell in love with it.
supposedly the mazdaspeed 8 was going to also have a electrically assisted turbocharger. and i think the return of the Top MIC. Which means a hood scoop. ive seen the pictures of it. looks good. balances the car out better.
Well the speed miata is back out for another year and is amazing in the new
colors they offer. Also i believe the speed 6 is coming out in third
quarter of the year. Its gonna be nuts. 272hp and a crap load of tq for
a 4 cyl turbo. AWD and 6SPD manual. Last i heard also was that they were
not gonig to do a speed *. In all reality i want to see the 20b some in
the RX8 and see it stomp any competition. I could be wrong on the 8
If they do turbocharge them theyll still suck to deflood, maybe even worse, since people dont read the owners manual and shut them off after about 20 secs of running(assholes)
^^lol so true
Looks alright.... but a bit small. :smoke:
