Reminiscent of Italian and British roadsters such as the Triumph Spitfire, Alfa Romeo Spider, and the MG MGB, Mazda's MX-5 Miata debuted in 1989. Powered by the four-cylinder Miata 1.8 engine, this hot sports car improved on the classic roadsters with a generous helping of safety features and reliable technology. This sleek two-seat convertible was an immediate hit and reigns as the top-selling car of its kind. The first generation of the Miata carried the NA designation, with a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission. The NA has either a 114 horsepower B6ZE(RS) 1.6-liter inline four engine or the 133-horsepower BP 1.8-liter inline four engine. The NA gave way to the NB in 1999 for the second generation design. The 1999 Miata engine dropped the 1.6-liter option for the U.S. cars, keeping the 1.8-liter inline four, including a turbocharged 177 horsepower BPT inline four, called the Mazdaspeed. The third-generation NC version debuted in 2008, featuring a 125 horsepower MZR inline-four engine. Mazda unveiled the fourth-gen MX-5 in 2014, slated for the 2016 model year. Browse the vast inventory on eBay for a first-generation 1991 Miata engine, either the 1.6-liter version or the more powerful, stretched version, the Miata 1.8-liter engine.
