    Mazda MX-5

    a more modern version of the current miata, which i think is very dated for such an excellent driving machine.



    before you rant about how the solstice crushes this think in the style department, know that i didnt design this to compete with the solstice style wise.

    how is it?

    Pretty good. Though the windshield looks a little low.

    Umm, it's the Opel GT. Nice, but that's not the Mazda

    look at the current miata next to this, and you'll see the similarities. the opel gt IS the saturn sky, which imo this looks nothing like.

    IMO, that is a pretty good, a nice evolution of the current design, and much better looking (and more updated) than the current MX-5.

    I'd say the Sky is the Opel GT, given what the original Sky concept looked like, that's why I referred to the vehicle as Opel. The side profile is more Kappa than MX-5 to me.

    Nice, miles better than the 'is it coming or going?' current new MX-5.

    And yeah, time for the some new rims. ;]
