Sales soar, then time flies
The life of a test car is never pretty. This MX-5 has spent more than its fair share of time in the Tullamarine long-term car park as its ‘owner’ ventured beyond borders and over waters. It’s most recent sojourn on Level 3, Section G was while I was in Japan for an Infiniti conference. I was surprised how few MX-5S I saw on Tokyo’s roads, though Mazda claims 826 of these COTYwinning soft-tops are sold there each month. Australia’s running rate is about 120 a month, though it falls away as the car ages.
