The classic MX5 Roadster celebrated 900,000 sales and over 22 years in production way back in 2011.  Three years later the car is still going strong.

The milestone has also been entered into the Guinness World Records as the ‘World’s Best-selling Two Seat Sports Car’.

The older versions of these cars continue to be very popular second hand cars as they offer that wonderful driving experience that comes from driving an MX5 with the roof down.  And with over 20 years of sales there are many great examples of the car to be had.

What has been most amazing about the MX5 is that it survived so long while Mazda shifted from being a design innovator to building the most grimly uninteresting 323s, 626s and 929s imaginable.

But the MX-5 survived in much the same form.
