Only a day has passed since Mazda revealed the all-new MX-5 Miata, but already our favorite rendering artist X-Tomi has come up with a digital rendition of what a high-performance Mazda MX-5 MPS might look like. And it’s pretty darn good.
The front-end of the new MX-5 looks rather questionable – what with those tiny little headlights which are supposed to be a tribute to the first-gen Miata, but look plain ugly. But X-Tomi has given the car a revised grille and a chin spoiler, and those bits work wonders with the aesthetics.
This imaginary Mazda MX-5 MPS also features extended side skirts, a revised rear bumper with a neat diffuser, and twin tailpipes arrangement. The rear apron goes really well with those flared wheel arches and results in a nice and sexy look. Those MPS wheels borrowed from the previous Mazda3 also help.
The idea of a Mazda MX-5 MPS sounds pretty interesting, but as we know from the previous generations of the car, it is not going to happen. The MPS treatment is reserved for Mazda’s hatchbacks and saloons. The MX-5 never got a proper upgrade kit like this from the factory, and it probably never will.
