You may have missed out on the worldwide debut of the fourth-generation Mazda MX-5 back on September 3rd, but to be honest, you didn’t miss out on anything substantial. Sure, the car was paraded in front of a crowd and through live streaming, but other than being treated to an endless loop of 80’s hits, the reveal was nothing short of confusing.

So I’m guessing that Mazda’s making some type amends with the release of this video, which is an extended recap of what happened during the unveiling of the car.

You’re going to see a lot of Mazda design director Derek Jenkins talking about the MX-5 Miata. There are even some camera angles that weren’t available during the live reveal, showcasing the MX-5 in a variety of angles that we didn’t get to see before.

If you labored through the MX-5’s launch, this video gives you a fresh take that you can appreciate. But if you missed the debut, it’s even more important to watch this video and see for yourself the day when the fourth-generation MX-5 Miata was revealed to the world.

I’m still a little peeved about the lack of details from the launch, but I do appreciate Mazda trying to make up for it.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
