As much as we’d like to see the next-generation Mazda Miata land in showrooms by, well, yesterday, it appears we’re going to have show some patience. Widespread reports that the new 2-seater would be unveiled at next month’s Chicago Auto Show just aren’t accurate, it turns out.
“It’s not true,” Mazda’s chief U.S. spokesman Jeremy Barnes tells TheDetroitBureau.com. “File that under the heading of ‘Don’t believe everything you read on the Internet.”
That’s too bad because Mazda – and the Miata – have always had a special relationship with the Windy City, the little sports car making its original debut at the Chicago Auto Show exactly a quarter-century ago.
