2015 Mazda MX5 chassis testing mule spied on the Nürburgring

Last month we brought you first pictures of the chassis testing mule for the next-generation Mazda MX-5 at Chrysler’s Auburn Hills Tech Centre. Why at Chrysler’s test centre?

The next Mazda MX-5 will share is platform also with the all-new Alfa Romeo Spider/2C.

The testing continues now on the Nürburging, showing a modified current generation MX-5 body.

The focus with the new MX-5 will be on weight reduction and it also looks like the new model will grown in size as the mule has wider wheel cases and has a longer wheelbase.

Both the new Mazda MX-5 and the Alfa Romeo Spider/2C will be built side-by-side in Japan, with the MX-5 reportedly ready for debut in 2015 and Italian version a year later.

The MX-5 will reportedly use a turbocharged 1.3-litre SKYACTIV engine, while the Alfa’s version will get its own range of Fiat-sourced engines.
