They seriously haven't showed the full frontal yet. Somebody in the audience needs to step up and take over the camera.

This band is horrific. I found some pics on jalopnic though and I'm liking it.

Yeah I was cool with the James Bond theme opening music, but cut that **** now and focus on what we're here for already.

I don't know why people are upset that the rear looks like a Jag F type. The F-type is one of the best looking cars ever IMO.

The front looks pretty good to me, I was hoping for a closer relationship to the current Mazda corporate grille but tweaked a bit for the Miata. It looks pretty effeminate IMO.

I CANNOT wait to drive one. Will drive the first one that rolls off the truck. No idea when that is though. Will be watching incoming vehicles....

So, what's in it?

Duran Duran... Die.

I think we're all convinced. Now we just need numbers, under hood, price, and test drive video.

lol

So glad the front bumper has a solid line and no ******* grin face. Thank you Mazda for not ruining the grille portion.

I bet you will.. literally, when it ends up for 1/3 price at an auction because it actually rolled off the car transporter on its way to the dealership.

Not loving the back, reminds me of a BMW. Front looks a little S2000ish, would have preferred more of the Kodo influence. But maybe my initial opinion will change when I get a good look at it at some point

From the angled shot of the rear, it looks really fat, not phat, but fat, bulbous.

Looks great from the very back but that angled profile looks weird.

I'm happy with it, but I also don't want another car loan under my belt since I have no debt.

******* duran duran?

I'm waiting to see how tight the engine bay is especially after how tight the NC bay is.
