Mazda Roadster (NC). 2005–14 (prod. 78,339 to end of 2006, incl. 2005 NB production). 2-door convertible, 2-door coupé-convertible. F/R, 1798, 1999 cm³ (I4 DOHC). More aggressive styling on platform related to that of Mazda RX-8, with front wishbone–rear multi-link suspension. Traction and stability control added. Weight minimized despite additional equipment, with light and stiff body; increase around 10 kg over NB on average. Retractable hardtop model announced 2006, with extra 36 kg. Considered very nimble and sporting, losing none of the driveability of original. Export names of Miata and MX-5 continued, but in Japan the car’s marque changed from the now-defunct Eunos to Mazda.
