Given that Pontiac drew comparisons to the current Miata in the press, and given that the price range and target markets will likely be the same, who here is also scouting out the new Miata as a possible alternative to the Solstice? I eliminated the current Miata from my list of alternatives due to interior room. Most of the trade journals are saying that the 2006 model will have increased head and leg room. As I posted earlier, Road & Track is projecting a curb weight around 2,500 lbs with an optional 180 hp 2.0 liter engine. It also seems likely that the Miata will have better top up visibility and a more sizable trunk for weekend trips. It could be a difficult choice to make for some (including me).
