Mazda MX5 1989-2006

Unique Cars - - REVIEW -

The world’s best-sell­ing sports car is about to turn 30 and early ones show signs of be­com­ing col­lectible. Val­ues for pre-1992 mod­els are up on av­er­age by 40 per­cent on 2013 lev­els and buyers seem pre­pared to pay at least $10,000 to se­cure very good sur­vivors. 1991-93 Lim­ited ver­sions in the re­cent mar­ket were dis­ap­point­ing but a small sam­ple won’t be help­ing. From then on, val­ues de­pend more on con­di­tion than age and 1994-2002 mod­els gen­er­ally cost $7500-10,000. Col­lec­tors are ab­sent from this end of the mar­ket but NB and NC se­ries cars of­fer fun trans­port for $10-15,000. The last of the NB cars could be spec­i­fied with tur­bocharged en­gines and some of these will bet­ter $20,000.
