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?
