    OK. I'll say it. Gawd it's ugly.

    I think that the front is the least successful bit and that these renders don't do the car's justice, but if you look at pic 2 you can see that the proportions are just right.

    Long bonnet, cabin pushed backwards, short deck.

    Classic sportscar.

    The proportions don't matter if the details aren't right, and vice versa.

    The Miata has never been a looker, and here is another variant I won't be seen driving.

    I kind of have to agree, it's not really the prettiest car.

    It's not the best looking car ever but neither is it terrible.

    And anyway, all that matters is the way it drives.

    First glance I'd think its a Honda S2000 every time I'd see one

    Oh man, that's cruel, I'd love to see a new S2000- sadly, I don't think we'll see a new one without batteries, a hybrid system and 4WD.

    I don't see the resemblance, but I do laud Mazda for going simple. Honda/Acura is so lost at doing what they used to do well I'm at a loss for words.

    MX-5 platform would probably be a good one for an electric motor in the back and a little rotary range extender motor in the front. If they did it right it would be a nice little halo/demo for the tech.

    Since we've established UCP is a safe place (in truth, I rarely see such civilized debate on a car forum, let alone the internet) I want to admit I'm not keen on dedicated roadsters. A coupe with a convertible variant? Solid. A dedicated roadster? Bleh. The removable roof on the Vette, and CGT/918 have always irked me for this reason.

    Am I a bad person?

    No, I don't like convertibles either. When the S2000 went away, I was hoping that they'd come out with a coupe version, kind of like the Z4 coupe.

    I'm surprised, our taste in cars are quite similar.

    This could be a climate thing.
