I've owned 6 Miata's. I've seen the new one in person. I am HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED with MAZDA. I was really hoping for something that would be different. Unfortunately, It does look like a BAR OF SOAP. Just makes me sick as a fan of this car. I remember the excitement behind the 1990 model. No hype or excitement on this one. After one or two model years, Miata will lose at least 50% of the market share to Pontiac. The new king of the two seat roadster in America will be the Pontiac Solstice! The truth has been spoken, my dollars going to GM.rloewy said:I am waiting to see both cars in real life to form an opinion. I like the way the Solstice looks - but the new Miata is growing on me by the day.
