It’s nice to hit a button to drop the top, but it certainly takes longer.

The Mazda MX-5 has been around since its debut at the Chicago Auto Show way back in 1989. It has since gone through three generational changes, with the most recent debuting on September 3rd, 2014. For those of you who have been asleep at the wheel, the MX-5 is one of the hottest selling little roadsters out there and is quite literally a favorite of roadster gearheads everywhere. With the MX-5 having a long, successful history, Car Throttle decided to do a review of all four generations of the MX-5 followed by an entertaining, albeit different, shoot-out between them.

I won’t ruin the video for you, but in a shoot-out between generational models, those with more technology sometimes come in dead last. With that said, it’s fun to go back and look at each generation of the MX-5, and you can’t beat an improvised shoot-out between them either. So, why not end your weekend by watching this video and celebrating one of the hottest roadsters to ever grace the planet? Click play and enjoy the video.

Robert has been an auto enthusiast his entire life. He started working cars at a young age, learning the basics from his father in the home garage on the weekends. As time went on, Robert became more and more interested in cars and convinced his father to teach him how to drive when he was just 13 years old. Robert continued working on cars in his free time and learned as much as he could about engines, transmissions, and car electrical systems, something that only fed his curiosity more and eventually led him to earn a bachelors degree in automotive technology with a primary focus on engine performance and transmission rebuilding.  Read More
