2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Launch Edition Sold Out
Mazda has sold all of the 1,000 Launch Editions of the 2017 MX-5 Miata RF hardtop convertible. Torque News alerted our readers to the pre-order deadlines, and one of our readers was kind enough to follow up with a comment that they were able to secure one. Another reader was waitlisted.
Mazda originally opened up the 2017 MX-5 Miata RF to a select group of loyal Mazda Miata owners. This writer, the former owner of an NC 2007 Grand Touring Miata, was not included in that select group of Miata fans. The rumor is that to be included one must have had multiple Miatas and still be a current owner.
That allocation of about 500 Launch Edition cars sold out in about a week. Mazda then opened up the Launch Edition pre-ordering process to the general public. The remaining 500 cars sold out in 13 hours. This may seem like a very fast sale, and it is, but the 2016 ND Miata Launch Edition sold out even faster last year.
Those who wanted a Launch Edition will be happy to hear that the Grand Touring and Club trims of the MX-5 Miata RF are now planned for production in early 2017. These new models will differ in their construction from the soft-top Miata by having a 4.6-inch full-color TFT gauge standard and the availability of Machine Gray Metallic paint in substitution of Meteor Gray Mica that is available on the soft top.
