The essential info on the essential zoom-zoom mobile

It’s no secret that we here at TopSpeed are fans of the Mazda Miata. In fact, we’re willing to bet most of you out there reading these words right now are fans of it as well. And what’s not to like? The beauty is in the simplicity of it – engine up front, power at the rear, and just a little bit of weight in between, all spread evenly in a 50:50 ratio from tip to tail. Makes perfect sense, right? But how did Mazda end up making a plucky sports car now known as the right answer to any automotive question? Well, our friends over at Donut Media put together this eight-and-a-quarter-minute video explaining exactly that.

The video adheres to the traditional format, mixing a recap of the model’s history with sarcastic wit and a flurry of pop culture references. The video walks us through the car’s development, debut, and subsequent generations, plus (and this is important), why it’s the friggin’ answer to everything. Seriously, to quote the video – “People love racing these cars!” Whether you’re a hardcore Miata devotee, or just someone who enjoys jokes about hairdressers, this video is sure to provide some entertainment. So then, dear reader, is the Miata really always the answer?
