This is a beautiful 1991 Miata convertible for sale. I'm also interested in trading for a Corvair convertible, either early or late model.
This LOW MILEAGE car is in great shape--no rips or tears in the interior, and has a new convertible top installed with a glass rear window. The a/c is blowing warm air (do ANY early models still have working air?), but I drive it with the top down in warm weather unless it's raining--and you will too!
The exterior body is in good overall shape (see pictures) with a few small dents and dings on the body and hood--as you would expect for an original, unrestored car of this age. The most severe dent is on the left front fender (see picture). Overall though, this is a great looking car!
You can see the mods in the pictures--the car has Enkei alloy wheels and low-pro tires, adjustable shocks and new springs from Flyin' Miata. The car has also been fitted with an aftermarket cold air intake and a polished valve cover. This car drives right and tight! The mileage will go up a little--I drive the car a couple of days a week when the weather is good here in St. Louis, and I'm driving the car to Arkansas in the next week or so.
Here's the deal--this car is worth the asking price. Mileage and condition are everything when buying a car--and you could buy this vehicle and drive it a couple of years (24k miles) --and then resell it as a LOW MILEAGE CAR, with under 100k miles...you could probably STILL get between $4500.00 and $5000.00 at that time for the car! Please think about that when thinking about the selling price.
Early Miatas are reliable, fun cars to drive, and they are one of the few modern cars that can easily be maintained by a home mechanic with average skills--these great cars aren't going to go out of style anytime soon. This car will hold its value better than most cars you can buy (certainly cars you can drive on the street).
The car is for sale locally, and I reserve the right to end this listing at any time. Please forward a $500.00 deposit via paypal within 24 hrs of auction close, and the balance will be due within 1 week. I will send the title upon completion of these terms, and I will be happy to store the car for you for up to 30 days as long as payment is made per the terms of this listing to allow you to facilitate pickup of the vehicle. Please only bid if you are serious about buying the vehicle and can pay the final selling price with no drama. Vehicle is sold as is--with no warranty.
This is a 5 DAY auction, so bid now!
Thanks for looking!

Mazda has a lot going on these days, what with launching the new Mazda6 and Mazda3, with the new Mazda2 just around the corner. We know the new Miata is also on the way, and after that it looks like the next vehicle in its lineup due for an overhaul is the CX-9 crossover, due to launch by 2016. The move makes sense because the CUV is growing long in the tooth. It was first introduced in 2007 and was refreshed twice since then.

The next-generation CX-9 will move away from Ford-derived components like the V6 in the current model and will likely use a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. However, a final decision hasn't been made yet. "If I ask Mr. Hitomi, our top guy of powertrains at Mazda, he believes the downsizing turbo solution costs more. But real downsizing means six-cylinder to four-cylinder turbo could make sense from a cost point of view," said Mazda's global marketing boss Masahiro Moro to CarAdvice at the New York Auto Show. The executive said a hybrid powertrain option would be unlikely, but markets outside the US could get a diesel, as well.
Moro also tipped his hand at future Mazda model plans. He hints that the Japanese automaker is considering building a luxury vehicle with a six-cylinder engine. "It's too early, we don't have a car yet. But we are collecting advice as to V6 or straight-six," he said to CarAdvice. We'll definitely be watching.
Mazda, looking to make the most of its new, lightweight Skyactiv vehicle architecture, will allegedly use a version of the CX-5 crossover's platform to underpin its next-generation Mazda2 hatchback, according to a report from Just-Auto.com. Of course, the Mazda2 is a much smaller vehicle than its larger CUV stablemate, so some serious chopping will no doubt be in order when it comes time to engineer the replacement for the company's smallest hatch.

Currently, the CX-5 and the sleek new Mazda6 share many of the same platform components, and this architecture will already be scaled down to support the next-generation Mazda3 sedan and hatchback, which will debut later this year. Just-Auto.com states that all of Mazda's remaining front-wheel-drive vehicles will eventually switch to reworked versions of this Skyactiv platform, including the replacement for the larger CX-9 crossover.
Also of note, Mazda will reportedly be switching to shorter, four-year lifecycles for its vehicles. This means that the newly launched Mazda6 will be replaced for the 2016 calendar year, with a refresh coming sometime in 2014. That said, vehicles with platforms supplied by other automakers (like the upcoming MX-5 Miata replacement that will share its underpinnings with an Alfa Romeo product) will not necessarily follow this four-year rule.
The original Mazda MX-5 Miata was distinguished by an oval grille - a design trait that gradually evolved into the smiling cat face on the latest model. But Mazda, according to the latest intel, is planning on returning to that oval grille with the new model in the works.
The revised grille will cap a slightly longer form than models past, while still keeping weight down to a minimum. The stretched wheelbase was reportedly adopted in order to meet the requirements of Alfa Romeo, which is jointly developing the new platform together with Mazda for use on a new roadster of its own.
The new Miata is expected to adopt the 1.5-liter Skyactiv four found in the Mazda3, albeit returned to rev higher and deliver more power and torque, mated to either a six-speed manual or automatic. The Alfa version, meanwhile, is expected to use a 1.4-liter turbo four with a dual-clutch transmission. Sources anticipate the new MX-5 to debut first, possibly at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show a little less than a year from now.
