This 9K-Mile 1993 Mazda MX-5 Has To Be One Of The Nicest NAs Left In The USA

Finding an original Mazda MX-5 is becoming increasingly difficult thanks to its popularity and iconic status, so when we came across this 9K-mile 1993 Limited Edition example we felt a little weak in the knees.

The car is located in Michigan and is offered for sale on Ebay for the price of $17,900. It’s finished in black over red leather (as all LE models did in 1993) and it looks pretty shiny and clean. The odometer shows just 9,489 miles, which explains the condition inside and out.

Perhaps the only thing that people may not like is the wood trim on the dashboard but otherwise the cabin looks immaculate, with only the driver’s seat showing some signs of slight usage. The car also wears a set of 14-inch BBS wheels, front and rear skirts and a rear spoiler. A matching hardtop is also included, as is a limited-slip differential.

Power comes from the 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine paired to the famously short-throw five-speed manual transmission. As is the case with MX-5s, it may not impress you with its acceleration but it will keep you smiling from the moment you sit inside.

Mazda offered 1,505 examples of the Limited Edition in 1993, with all of them featuring a sport suspension, the front and rear skirts and spoiler, air conditioning and headrest speakers. Even the BBS wheels were standard.

Is near $18k a little too steep for a low-mileage Mazda MX-5 NA like this, or the time has come for the popular roadster to shoot up in value?

    too bad its an na6 with a potential crank pulley defect.

    • Justin

      That’s not correct… that defect only affected the first 1.5 years of production.

      • Netsphere

        it affected all cars up to 95, even my 94 had it

        • Jack Atherton

          If your NA is the US model it had a 1.8 liter motor with no “short nose” crankshaft problem.

            yes i had an na8, however the keyway was worn out to crap when i bought the car. not sure what they did to the poor thing. i would stay away from any na6, especially if you will drive it hard.

  • Loquacious Borborygmus

    WTF with that “wood” on the dash!
    Otherwise, very nice.

  • Puddingpopper

    Simplicity ages well. Looks great, but I would probably take a 2nd Generation Porsche Boxster over this for $18k. A 2008 Porsche Boxster S was a mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive vehicle powered by a 295-horsepower, 3.4L flat six. The Boxster S model came with the six-speed manual. That’s over twice the power, plus you get an extra gear to shift. No comparison.
