Spy Shots: '04 Mazda Miata
Submitted by SuperUser on Wednesday, May 30, 2001 - 12:00am

WIDTH=187 HEIGHT=90>The next generation Mazda MX-5 Miata will continue the success and tradition of the current Miata, but with a modern interpretation of the roadster design.

Sources tell us the new Miata will be introduced in early-to-mid 2003 as a 2004 model year offering. Styling will be more radical than today?s mild design. Insiders tell us to expect a much more sculpted hood with huge air intakes and massive front wheel arches housing 17-inch wheels, which will dominate the new Miata?s appearance.

With the debut of the rotary-powered RX8 concept, it?s believed that the Miata will share a platform with a four-door sedan with some sort of unusual rear-door system ? perhaps a ?suicide?-style door. And it?s being whispered that the Miata will convert to a rotary powerplant shared with the four-door as well.

This photo illustration ? based on conversations with insiders as well as styling cues from recent concepts ? shows what we believe the next Miata will look like.
