Creating a sensation when announced in 1989 the MX-5 was more than a simple re-creation, it was more of a re-interpretation bringing the earlier concept of a two-seater right up to date. Initially the only comparisons made were to older cars such as the MGB and it was some time before the likes of Honda, Fiat and BMW came along; now true comparisons could be made. These contemporary articles put the car into context and give a good balance of opinion. As revisions were made to the car so new comparisons could be made.
American, British and Australian experts compare the Miata and MX5 against: Toyota MR2, Lotus Elan and Elise, Mercury (Ford) Capri XR2, Porsche Boxster, 911 and 944, Honda CRX and Civic Del Sol, Nissan NX 2000 and 300ZX, MGF, Mazda RX7, Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4, Corvette, Alfa Romeo Spider, BMW Z3, Fiat Barchetta, Mustang Cobra and many others.
Also included are new model reports and updates, performance data and specifications, plus advice on buying a used MX5.
