Mazda MX-5 Miata 10th Anniversary Edition
Remember when commemorative-edition models didn’t just add silly decals and stripes? In 1999, when the Mazda MX-5 Miata 10th Anniversary Edition was sold, it came with a lot more than just exclusive Sapphire Blue Mica paint. It also had blue synthetic-suede seat inserts and 10th-anniversary-edition floor mats. Buyers also received a gift pack with a scale model of their car, a key ring, and two Seiko watches—plus these blue keys. Beyond cosmetics, the anniversary Miata had a Torsen limited-slip rear differential, sport-tuned Bilstein shocks, a front strut tower, and a six-speed manual transmission that made it a little more tolerable at highway speeds. Mazda celebrated 30 years of Miata in 2019 with a MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition with exclusive cosmetics and a sport suspension. That was a limited 500-car run for the U.S. In 1999, Mazda produced 7500 of these to celebrate the first decade of the world’s cutest roadster.
