Of course, it Is not the Porsche 911 Targa, but the Mazda MX-5 RF only costs the fraction of that car, and don’t forget, it is based on the most popular roadster ever.
The RF comes with the complicated folding hardtop, which works at speeds of up to 6mph, and takes 12 seconds to operate, at the touch of the button.
Once lowered, it is not hard to see why this version of a Mazda MX-5 is favored over a regular one by some of the brand’s fans – just look at it.
And with 155 hp and 148 pound-feet (201Nm) of torque, produced by a 2.0-liter SkyActiv-G engine, it is not exactly slow either, as it needs the respectable 6.4 seconds to accelerate from naught to 60mph, channeling output to the rear wheels through either the standard six-speed manual or the optional six-speed automatic gearbox.
The Mazda MX-5 RF seen here has the stick shift, and weirdly, it’s not the dealer or the press car.
In fact, the person whose name is written on the papers is the reviewer’s mother, and who went for the Club grade, which starts at $31,555, to which she added the few options, such as the Soul Red Metallic paint, Brembo package, the BBS alloy wheels, Aero kit, and the keyless entry.
So does the son approve of his mother’s choice? There is only one way to find out, and it includes checking out the POV review of the car.
