900,000th Mazda MX-5 Rolls Off The Production Line

The total production of Mazda MX-5 sports car has reached 900,000 units. This new record took Mazda 21 years and 10 months after mass production of the first-generation MX-5 commenced in April 1989.

The MX-5 was initially certified by Guinness World Records as the world’s “Best selling two-seater sports car” when production reached 531,890 units in May 2000. Guinness updated the record when production passed 700,000 and 800,000 units, respectively. Currently Mazda is reapplying to Guinness World Records to have the record updated to 900,000 units.

UK sales of Mazda MX-5 account for over 10 percent of global sales and European sales for 40 percent.

Today, the Mazda MX-5 continues to be the most popular Roadster in the UK. The 2011 MX-5 is priced from £17,975 to £23,205. Currently, the range is boosted by two ‘special edition’ versions of the legendary sportscar called the MX-5 Miyako. The 1.8i Miyako soft-top costs £18,769.68 and the more powerful 2.0i Miyako roadster coupe has a £21,321.81 price tag.

Since Mazda launched the original MX-5 in 1989, it has undergone two complete product redesigns and a series of upgrades.
