Sales soar, then time flies

Wheels (Australia) - - Showroom -

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.
