Mazda’s next-generation MX-5 roadster could at last be on the road to an unveiling - in concept form, at least - if reports this week prove accurate.
According to website Autoweek, Mazda insiders have confirmed an MX-5 related unveiling at next month’s New York Auto Show.
The report claims that the MX-5 itself will be revealed in New York, however reports elsewhere suggest Mazda may instead reveal only the architecture of the new model.
If not its underpinnings alone, we could even expect to see a streamlined concept on Mazda’s stand - the company’s preferred way to preview new models.
The final production model, though?
That remains to be seen, although it has been reported that Mazda will debut the showroom model next year in Chicago, where it revealed the original MX-5 in 1989.
If nothing else, it is known that Mazda intends to use the New York show to celebrate 25 years of ‘Jinba ittai’ (the MX-5’s development philosophy, meaning ‘horse and rider as one’).
