Yeah, but you know, it's just my entire family and everything that means anything to me riding in the truck, NBD.
That’s a funny looking mall :)
I just bought a ‘16 Club with 1k miles, AMA.
I wish I fit more comfortably in one... if I ever got a lightweight sportscar it would probably have to be a GT86.
2016 Club for $20k:
They were setting fast time of the day at autocrosses everywhere in STR trim before the update. They're still quick in all the right ways
It’s really, really good, isn’t it? As a fellow big guy, I was so happy I fit!
The one thing to date I’m still most amazed is the shifter action. To date all the cars I’ve driven, no car can match it IMO, maybe except the E39 M5.
I drove an ND in early 2017, and it didn’t feel slow to me. It wasn’t fast, but it felt a little quicker than my 328i despite less hp, but then I’m sure it weights a decent amount less.
I read that as “I drove Miata in North Dakota”
I’ve only driven an NC and I loved it. I’m afraid that if I try an ND I’m going to obsess over it until I spend money I don’t have on something I don’t need. If I just forgo the test drive the next time I’m at the dealer I might be able to resist.
Exactly my feeling. I keep telling myself, “someday”.
From what I’ve read nobody was calling the first ND “slow” it’s more that with the power upgrade for ‘19 it’s now “legitimately quick”. The pre ‘19s do 0-60 in around 6.1 seconds and the new one is like 5.7. Yeah that doesn’t tell the whole story but if it’s like half the price of new that doesn’t seem like a huge…
Awesome! I’m 6'3" and couldn’t drive a Miata until they installed the telescopic wheel for the '19s. Now I really want one as well.
Remember they’ve been out for 4 years already. If you can deal with the lower power of the pre-2019 models they are selling in the $18k range now. I’m sure the higher power ones will hold a little more value but it’s a Miata not a Tacoma, Wrangler, WRX or 1M - give it a few years and you should be able to pick up a…
Well, I could afford an NB Miata when the ND came out, so wait for the NF?
My boss, who lives in Boulder, is putting his on the market because his hubby is too tall for it. I think he’s 6’6”. He’s pretty bummed.
I am still pissed with myself for not putting money down on an anniversary edition. I’ve never bought any new car, much less a limited edition, so I didn’t realize that the announcement that they would make one was the starting gun for placing orders with dealerships.
That might be the primary delay - getting a motor combo that would be as demonstrably reliable as needed for the planned 25-year service life. I’m sure they could do it, but that vehicle is meant to be your Last Car.
