Only 3,000 units will be made worldwide, with 500 already earmarked for the USA market.

The 30th Anniversary package will be available on both the standard roadster and the Miata RF.

In 1989, Mazda changed the sports vehicle landscape when it debuted the MX-5 Miata at the Chicago Auto Show.

Mazda originally planned to use the yellow color found on the original 1989 Miata but wanted to go further than simply reusing an old color. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, as does a three-month SiriusXM subscription and three-year Traffic Plus and Travel Link subscription. Under the hood, the vehicle borrows the Skyactiv-G 2.0-liter engine found in the 2019 MX-5 Grand Touring model that delivers 181 hp and 151 lb-ft (205 Nm) of torque - a 17 percent increase over the 2018 model year.

On Tuesday, Google published a Chrome plugin that will report if the login info you use in say, Yahoo, has been stolen. In other words, there's no real downside to installing the extension and helping protect your online accounts.

The legendary, oh-so-loveable MX-5 has now turned 30. According to Mazda, it's a throwback to the 1989 MX-5 Miata Club Racer. GT models replace 16-inch. All of the cars have the same features including dark gunmetal forged aluminum Rays wheels based on the design used by the Global MX-5 Cup racing cars.

This trim is unique to the 30th Anniversary cars, so these aren't options that you can pick out by yourself from the regular ordering system to build one yourself. Maybe Mazda will surprise us with a Mazdaspeed Miata redux in the upcoming years. The brake calipers and interior vent louvers also get a coating of Racing Orange paint. The Miata already is one of our favorite cars on the market, and it was made even better for the 2019 model year with the addition of a new, higher-revving engine. Opting for the automatic transmission-why would you ever, though?-adds $499 to the softtop's price and $400 to the cost of the RF.

Each auto will be individually numbered, and reservation holders will be able to select their number out of 3,000, unless it's already taken.
