Are you pumped for the 25th anniversary of the Mazda MX-5 Miata? Want to be one of the first on your block to have one? Then you had best be heading over to Mazda’s microsite, where you can preorder it.
A press release from Mazda said the microsite features a countdown clock to 10:25 a.m. PDT, May 20, when the site’s preorder system will officially go live. According to Mazda, the first 100 verified registrants on the preorder list will have the opportunity to obtain one of the 25th Anniversary Edition Mazda MX-5 Miatas, which will be limited to 100 in number.
With the launch of the site also comes pricing info, so all of you wondering what the new-for-2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata will cost, listen up: The soft top-equipped model comes in at $23,970, and the power retractable hard top will start at $28,665. The 25th Anniversary Edition will only be available with the power retractable hard top and will carry an MSRP of $32,205, the release said.
Mazda North American Operations President and CEO Jim O’Sullivan said, “The MX-5 Miata is not about making history but about taking innovation a step further. Twenty-five years after the vehicle was introduced, the MX-5 continues to be the benchmark for light, responsive and fun-to-drive roadsters. It is the genesis from which every Mazda since has been born. With the fourth generation MX-5 on the horizon, we look forward to reinventing the segment once again.”
Want the official spiel from Mazda on the pre-order system? Here you go:
When the MX-5 Miata 25th Anniversary Edition microsite opens, interested parties will be asked to complete a registration form where they can select their choice of transmission and preferred Mazda dealership location. The first 100 verified registrants will be given the opportunity to pre-order an anniversary model. Any attempt at multiple entries will void that participant’s offer and disqualify them from the program. The pre-order program will run through 11:25 AM PDT, May 31, 2014, or when 250 customers have registered, whichever comes first. All 100 MX-5 Miata 25th Anniversary Edition buyers will go through an exclusive pre-order process for their vehicle. Registered customers will be contacted directly by MNAO to confirm purchase intent. Upon verification, the customer’s information will be forwarded to the dealership of their choosing to finalize the transaction.
