The Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition Proves that the U.S. Market Remains a Hotbed for Special Edition Models
Recall when automakers generated special variant versions and supplied them in other markets except for the U.S.? While that still stays true in some way, the karma Gods have decided to throw American buyers a few”special edition” bones within the last few years. One of these bones was that the Mazda MX-5 Miata Anniversary, that Mazda introduced to great fanfare at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show in February. Just 500 units were made available and, as expected, eager beavers scooped up all 500 units in a matter of hours. You would feel that people who were not able to evaluate a booking for one would be down on their luck? The karma Gods are back, baby, and they’ve instructed — at least I think they did — Mazda to throw in an extra 143 components of their MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition for the U.S. market. Regrettably, the units that were 143 are allocated only. Because it still beats getting shut out completely, 13,, that’s ok?
