    This new model is both attractive and innovative. Its arrival is understandable, since the retractable hard top outsold the cloth top toward the end of the previous model cycle. I still wish Mazda would offer the larger 2.5 liter engine as an optional upgrade. That would make for a truly impressive car.

    That's why you get a retractable hardtop. Duh. Much easier to take the unicorn for a ride with the top down.

    Now the question is can this model be configured with upholstered seats? Unicorn hooves really do a number on leather....

    But seriously, this car has lustful looks. And we all know Miatas have excellent handling. With a horsepower boost it'd be the whole package.

    It's ONLOOKERS who look lustful.
