Mazda MX-5 Breaks Guinness World Record

900,000th Mazda MX-5

The Mazda MX-5, or Miata as it’s known in certain markets, has just set a new Guinness World Record for the "Best selling two-seat sports car".

Interestingly, the MX-5 originally set the record when production of the car reached 531,890 units in May 2000. Guinness updated the record when production passed 700,000 and, later, 800,000 units. Currently, Mazda is reapplying to have the record updated to 900,000 units.

The 900,000th example of the car was built earlier today in Japan and is destined for a home in Germany. This tally has been growing since the launch of the first generation of the car back in 1989. Since then, it has only undergone two complete product redesigns though a series of upgrades have kept it fresh.

  1. I'm just curious how the Miata has this title when Chevrolet has produced more than 1,000,000 Corvettes. Making Vettes a better selling two-seater sports car than the Miata by at least a few hundred thousand.
