2002 Mazda Miata — Second Generation
A little more than 10 years after the first Miata rolled off the assembly line, this 2002 model finished in Evolution Orange Mica was the 500,000th built. The second generation — the NB — debuted in 1999 with the most noticeable change being exposed headlights. That and other updated styling cues were heavily influenced by the third generation of Mazda’s RX-7, which was on sale at the time. This new Miata also got a bit more power, larger wheels and tires and more amenities than earlier models. A 6-speed manual was also offered for the first time.
