No it doesn't! It looks horrible! Argh! The Miata was always supposed to be a little version of their flagship, not a tiny spicy version of their family car! There goes another good sports car down the crapper.

That's where we differ in opinion. I've never thought of the Miata as a 'Sports Car'. To me it's a 'Sporty' car that is fun to drive and affordable.

the car looks good, but it will no longer be a miata! it's a totally new design and the fun of it will certainly drop as it really looks like a small m6... there will be no more personnality associated to it!

Somehow I doubt it's gonna look like that. It's way to early to be getting legit sneak peeks I think.

That pic looks like a photochoped version of the 6 MPS. Its even at the same angle! I'm raising the :bsflag on this one.

It is a retouched Mazda6 MPS, that photo was debunked long ago on Miata.net. What is known about the NC is, weight 1 metric ton (2200lbs); 4cyl motor, will be easily recognized as a Miata/MX-5.

Expect no "real" spy photos untill early 2005.

Believe me, It won't look like that.

There is too much "bruising" on the front bumper. Bruising meaning the dark spots on the bumper are not justified, so raise your B.S. flags in protest. ;) I don't think it looks bad, in fact, I like it, but it does steal the personality of the Miata.

Btw Phrosted, what exactly is Mazda's "flagship model" if it isn't the 6?

is that me or many things have been taken from the RX-7 to the miata over the years...

i'm thinking about the shape of the doors for example...

Yeah, that's true. I bet that the miata takes on some traits from the RX-8 next model year, that would be fitting. I bet it's also too small for me to drive, but ton's of fun when I squeeze in there! :D

Ah yes! lol.. Its been so long since there has been a new RX-7 and the launch of the RX-8 went over my head already. :p Well, if we get the new Miata to look anything like the RX-8, we will be very happy.

i think we got a point there... Mazda presents the RX-8, then replace the miata to look like a little sister...

through the years without the RX's i thought they were trying to make RX's fans buy miatas... maybe it's just a matter of money since miatas are less expensive... :)

We have members in our club that are 6ft+ and in excess of 250lbs (some well in excess) that drive Miatas everyday.
