Car ownership is very expensive in Japan which is why most families only have one car. I rent my parking space and I have to pay car taxes AND inspection fees plus gas is expensive...I'm feeling the pain just thinking about it now...Doesn't help there are always things I want to fix / replace / upgrade on the Cosmo.

    Like you said though...Who knows what the future holds, maybe someday! I'm still hoping Mazda releases a new flagship rotary powered sports car.

    Ps...Great pic!
    well the future may hold something special come spring!��

    I've heard the same, although that it might be a later 2016 release. We're waiting to see how it looks, if the wife likes it we will probably get one. I finally sat in one at the local auto show last weekend, very nice with plenty of room for my long legs.

    I test drove the 16' MX5 Club and I was disappointed. The 13' MX-5 Club felt sportier and quicker even though the newer one is quicker on paper. My Mazda 2 has less body roll. A Toyota Sienna or Corolla has less body roll than the ND MX-5. It also feels tighter than the NC. I had trouble finding a comfortable seating position and my knees were hitting the dash. I'm not even that tall. I am 5'11. Lastly, the gear shift knob vibrates aggressively. Maybe some bushings can fix that.

    However I still intend to buy one eventually. It is a great looking car inside and out. I will wait a couple of years to let the aftermarket catch up so I can install a turbo or supercharger.

    Well I've driven a couple now and I would describe it as much more refined than my MSM. I fell in love with it and could see myself using this as a daily summer driver and relegating the 04 MSM as a track/autox car! And my color choice is now ceramic metallic ! Very intriguing color!

    I have bounced around so many cars since I first joined this forum like 13 years ago. Anyhow, I bought the new ND and am in the process of modding the crap out of it for SCCA and just for fun. So far I've got RSR coilovers (that I bought from a local Hawaii vendor who has a P5 turbo here), 17x8 Advanti Storm S1s with 235/40 tires, a full header-back exhaust (en route) and a tune...and some CorkSport front/rear sways. This car is definitely a dream. I got more pictures on IG @ Matth3wAJ.

    I think it would be really interesting if they made a coupe version with a hatchback. (F-Type style)

    Will look at the RF when it comes out. Hopefully the next model year will have the 2.5 turbo motor. That would be one fast car.

    Nate, we had a couple fun runs in your miata...loved your miata, fast as hell. I'm considering eventually dropping the V8 swap in mine once I get back stateside.

    Definitely come see me if you're looking. I can let you know when we get some in stock. It's looking like we'll get them at the end of the year. The 2.5T would be awesome in the Miata, but don't hold your breath. I highly doubt that it's coming. I don't even think the 2.5T will fit into the Miata.

    Picked up a Blue Reflex GT a couple weeks ago. My first Miata, RWD car, and convertible . Just got through the first 600 miles yesterday so I haven't had a chance to take it for a real drive yet, but I did get to test drive a used one with 6K miles on it before I bought it.

    Stunning, I can't wait to test drive the RF when it's released.
