Mazda Mulling A Turbo Miata, But Does It Really Need To?

Mazda Mulling A Turbo Miata, But Does It Really Need To?

At the core of Mazda’s concern is keeping the near-perfect 50:50 weight balance the 2016 Miata has achieved, and using a turbocharged engine would allow them to add less weight to a car reliant on its lightness. This is easier said than done though, as Mazda’s SKYACTIV-G line of gas engines have high compression ratios, making turbocharging difficult. Generally speaking, forced induction cars have low compression ratios, though turbodiesels are an exception to the rule. In other words, it’s doable, but it’ll take time and money, and the Miata is a pretty low-volume vehicle as it is. Can Mazda sell enough turbocharged versions to warrant the engineering effort?
