2016 Mazda Miata is Probably Turbocharged, Coming September 3rd [Video]

Oh my, we can barely contain our excitement. Like everyone else, the new MX-5 Miata is one of the cars we’ve been dreaming about. Thanks to a collaboration with Alfa Romeo, it’s bound to be lighter, quicker, and much prettier (hopefully similar to the rendering pictured here).

Yesterday we saw Mazda tease us with a trailer of the all-new roadster. But lo and behold, there was a surprise if you listened close enough— it sounds like it might be turbocharged. That’s right, a turbo Miata.

You may remember that when Mazda was out and about testing it’s Miata mule earlier in the year, a few people pointed out that it did in fact have a turbo. Initially we were skeptical. But for the most part, it looks like they might be right.

Turbo or no turbo, a new Miata is coming, and soon! Mark your calendars boys and girls, we can’t wait for Mazda’s latest and greatest roadster to hit the streets on September 3rd, 2014.
