We all remember and love old school British roadsters—like the MGB and the Triumph Spitfire—but the truth of the matter is that people who own them aren't necessarily people who like performance driving; often they're hobbyist mechanics who want something that needs to be tinkered with and repaired regularly. Mazda, however, took everything that is good about the British roadster formula, and updated it with a rock-solid engine and functional electrical systems. There's a reason that a large number of professional racing schools use Miatas for classes.
