They do consider them sports cars. I had full coverage on my '91 miata and my '91 accord and my monthly payment was $70 from Progressive.

It's the best selling convertible of all time for a reason. Nearly perfect weight distribution, optional 6 speed on some older ones damn nearl all newer ones, and like that Imports USA guy said, you can do anything with them (just don't tell him I would drive one lol).

I do know they made a turbo version (I'm guessing its called something that contains the words MAZDA and SPEED) but I don't know squat on that.
There was no 6 speed option available for the first generation Miata (NA) nor was there a turbo option. However, the second generation Miata (NB) was available as a MazdaSpeed version in 2001 and had a 6 speed gearbox. Second generation Miata's will easily soar over the $5k range and MazdaSpeed versions are obviously more.

yeah sorry I mistyped.....the 6 speed came into existence in the 2nd gen???? and apparently the MazdaSpeed version didn't get good reviews....
I apologize I mispoke. I still would buy one. I think it would be cool to see the motor from the speed3 or speed6 in one....that would be naughty

I also mispoke a little, The Mazdaspeed Miata's were only available for the 2004-2005 model years. Besides the turbo motor, the MSM came with 17in Racing hart wheels, beefier drivetrain components, stiffer bilstein struts, 6 speed gearbox with a more aggressive clutch, mazdaspeed cat-back exhaust, special interior trim pieces, and exclusive colors (2004 came with Velocity Red and Titanium Grey Metallic and 2005 added Lava Orange Mica and Black Mica)

This car was supposed to be able to go 0-60 in under 6.5 seconds and pull almost 1g on the skidpad (I think a .98g or something). Also, you get some exclusivity when owning one of these as there were somewhere around 5,500 of these made in their 2 year run.

From what I have read, those motors weren't really built for boost. They just slapped on a small turbo and called it good....I don't think they re-did it for boost, but I could be wrong...

I bet Tom Kraft over at Kraft 5 Star could help you find a Miata, or teach you a thing or two about them.
