A brief video of what looks to be a camouflaged 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Roadster was captured today in Japan by Evo Tatsuya. Happily, Mr. Tatsuya grabbed the recording using a smartphone with a high-definition camera. That made it possible to pull some reasonably decent still images from the video.
So, without further ado, I present photos of (what is almost certain to be) the (camouflaged) fourth-generation Miata!
This last one is a cropped and enhanced version of the second image. You can clearly see an LCD panel mounted to the top of the dash. It is very similar to the placement of the LCD navigation screen in the new Mazda2 and Mazda3 models.
Unfortunately, Mr. Tatsuya was unable to capture any video of the front of the camouflaged car. But thanks to his quick thinking, MX-5 Miata fans around the globe finally received their first taste of the all-new fourth-generation Roadster!
THANK YOU, Evo Tatsuya!
A Miata.net forum member discovered that Mr. Tatsuya's video contained location data! Click here to see the Google Street View of the exact location! As it turns out, that location is only about a mile from Mazda's Miyoshi Proving Ground in Hiroshima!
