The automaker's MEB platform is like a skateboard with the concept's 62-kwh battery mounted in the middle down low for a low center of gravity.

  • Mazda MX-5 Miata and Acura NSX, 2019 Chicago auto show

It had a 1.6-liter engine that made just 116 horsepower, but it proved that power wasn't needed to create a fun performance car. With Japanese quality, it was also much more reliable than the Triumphs and Lotuses that had preceded it. The Miata has since cycled through NA, NB, NC...
