“We’ve said it for years, without our diehard fans, the Miata would not be a cultural phenomenon and best-selling roadster of all time,” Masahiro Moro, chairman and CEO of Mazda North American Operations, said. “Fan response to the 2019 Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary has been incredible and we’re proud to bring additional units to those on the waitlist.”

The new 30th Anniversary Edition of the 2019 Mazda MX-5 comes fitted with a set of 17-inch Rays ZE40 dark gunmetal forged alloys, orange Brembo front brake calipers and Nissin rear brake calipers, exclusive Recaro seats and the 181hp 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G four-cylinder engine.

Other standard features include the exclusive Racing Orange paint finish, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a nine-speaker Bose audio system and orange piping over a leather/alcantara combo inside.

The 2019 Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition is priced from $34,995 MSRP, with the company to notify customers currently on the waitlist of the newly available inventory.
