Here’s some proper Japanese sports car battle for you. We have no idea who these guys are, but thank them for pitting the Toyobaru twins – Toyota GT86 and Subaru BRZ – against the good old Mazda MX-5. The Miata’s recipe – apart from the fact that it’s a roadster – is similar to that of the twins; a lightweight body, front engine, rear drive, no extra fuss. They are also among the most affordable sports car on the market today. So, this should be interesting.
This video should give you a good idea on how the 86’s performance measure up against the MX-5. so look at it just as a performance test. If it was just a comparison test the Miata would lose it because it has an old design, while the 86 is hot out of oven.
