Return Of The Barchetta: Alfa Romeo And Mazda To Build Roadsters
You must live under a rock if you didn't see Michael Bay's 2007 "Transformers" movie, a box-office mega-smash...
You said: "the Mazda will remain the cheap performance bargain it’s always been" ... really? Perhaps you meant to call it "economical", instead? While both mean "low-cost", the word "cheap" implies "low-cost, and not worth even that" while "economical" implies "low cost, and an excellent buy". The Miata (MX-5) may be one of the better buys out there if you are looking for a fun 2-seater.
