Mazda is Making 143 More MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition Models
Back in February, Mazda unveiled the highly-anticipated MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition. The Racing Orange roadster was limited to 3,000 units — with only 500 of those being sold in the United States. That unleashed a frenzy of fans who snapped up all 500 within four hours of the big reveal. Luckily, Mazda is about to release a few more of these exclusive Miatas.
More units coming soon
With bated breath and crossed fingers, hundreds more hopeful buyers signed up for the waitlist. Now, some lucky Mazda fans are about to have their wish granted — the automaker intends to produce 143 more units for the U.S. market. If you’re on the waitlist, you’ll be updated on the newly available cars.
Mazda chairman and CEO Masahiro Moro was excited to announce the news to the automaker’s legion of enthusiasts. “We’ve said it for years, without our diehard fans, the Miata would not be a cultural phenomenon and best-selling roadster of all time. Fan response to the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary has been incredible and we’re proud to bring additional units to those on the waitlist.”
