let there be light mazda shows specialty mx5s at sema show

Mazda will show two different concepts of its lightweight convertible next month at the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas.

The first, a Speedster concept of the MX-5 Miata is a lightweight version of the two-door, two-seater that, among other things, dumps the windshield in favor of a deflector and hopefully looks like a damn Bocar XP-5.

The second, a Spyder concept of the MX-5 is a mild update of the small convertible with a sculpted leather interior and a “concept” Mercury Silver paint color. (Just make it available already, Mazda.)

The cars will be displayed when the show starts Nov. 3 in Las Vegas.

    Now give us a hatchback coupe along the lines of the first generation RX-7. MX-5 GT, anyone?

      Yes, please! Not everyone wants a convertible toy, so how about a hardtop hatch, Mazda? But there must be fatal technical reasons why such a GT hatch is not possible, or they would have done it already...?

    I remember the last generation speedster concept was very nice looking (ditched the windshield for a little deflector)-- but I guess these things can't get approved for the road. Also, Mazda colors are awful.

    If FCA sells a version of this, will they call it the Fiat Lux?

    I like that taupe color with the brown top. But my MOST favorite Miata ever was this one. http://miata.net/gallery/images/95merlot.jpg Purple, tan, lace alloys (in gold optional).
