By any yardstick–yesterday, today, tomorrow–the ND-chassis Mazda MX-5 represents the perfect sports car.

Add in the Club package with the folding hardtop, and while perhaps not the autocross ringer on the national scene, everywhere else it will shine.

Daily commuter? Perhaps the perfect Miata for the task.

Highway trip? Again, show us a better Miata here.

We’ve written a lot about the ND Miatas, so you don’t need to hear me wax more about this one. If you’re thinking about a Miata, just get it.
