Intereseting article comparing the ND to the NA.  I found the pictures very revealing.  They look more alike than i realized.

ND Retro

 

It depends on the definition of "retro", and whether there is a range of retro..or whether it is/is not retro.  I looked up the Definition of "retro"And this is what I found: And this is what I found: "relating to, reviving, or being the styles and especially the fashions of the past".

I think the Miata has always been "inspired" by the past, even the NA. Remember, the NA was supposed to remind us of the original British roadsters. So now we've reached a stage where the latest Miata is retro because it looks like the first Miata which of course looked a lot like the Lotus Elan. And when Mazda introduced theND, they said they were getting back to the spirit/qualities of the original Miata.

So in that way, I think you could consider the ND "retra," but I guess the other question is, is that a bad thing if it is?
