Mazda has announced it will debut the all-new fourth-generation 2016 Miata MX-5 in three locations around the world on September 3, 2014. Those locations are: Monterey, California; Barcelona, Spain; and Chiba, Japan. This countdown timer is for the Monterey, CA location. Mazda plans simultaneous debuts in the three countries and the time Mazda has published for the debut in Japan is 9:30 a.m. on September 4. That would be 5:30 p.m. on September 3 in Monterey and that is what I used for setting the countdown timer.
The September 3 debut will be an invitation-only event for the press and Mazda dealers. The public debut will take place two days later, at the Miatas at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca event. It will also be a celebration of 25 years of top-down motoring in Mazda's very special roadster! Event organizers are expecting to attract more than 1,600 Miatas and their owners from all across North America.
