After 21 years, 10 months and countless hair dresser jokes, the 900,000th Mazda Miata has rolled off the assembly line in Hiroshima, Japan.

Originally created to capture the essence of classic British roadsters, the 1989 Miata won critical acclaim for its simplicity and fun driving dynamics.

According to Nobuhiro Yamamoto, the program manager of the current MX-5, "Since Mazda launched the original MX-5, it has undergone two complete product redesigns and a series of upgrades. Its enduring success is due to the strong support it enjoys from MX-5 fans around the world. Going forward, I will strive to keep the MX-5's spirit alive while evolving it into a car that will be loved by even more people."
