Mazda likes to march to the beat of its own drum—exemplified in its 'zoom-zoom' ethos and far-out design concepts—and its SEMA announcement sticks with that attitude. Forgoing the typical press release route, Mazda has cryptically released teasers on Flickr and Facebook as to what it will be featuring at SEMA.

While no official specifications or information is available from Mazda, from what we can tell it will be bringing two concepts to SEMA. One is a Mazda MX-5 Spyder that appears to be lowered and features a stretched canvas roof. A front spoiler and larger brakes also can be seen. 

The second concept is a Turbo Mazda2. Mazda put a caption on one of the Flickr photos saying this concept is one of the most powerful turbocharged engines in Mazda's lightest platform--which sounds promising to us. The most powerful turbocharged engine in Mazda's lineup would be the Mazdaspeed3's engine. Could Mazda possibly have found a way to shoehorn it into the small Mazda2? One can only hope and dream. 

Stay tuned for more details as we'll be live on the SEMA show floor next week.

  2. The Mazda2 is The Autobarn Mazda of Countryside’s Speed2. It was built by The Autobarn for The one Lap of America Race. The car is a Mazda2 Sport with a Speed3 drivetrain including a 2.3l Turbo engine with a built bottom end by Cp-e and suspension work from Corksport. It was driven 3800 miles across the US by Eric Vates and Charles Espenlaub in the Compact car division. The car is on loan to Mazda R&D for the 2011 SEMA show
