Mazda has announced plans to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the MX-5 Miata at the New York Auto Show.

The next-generation model won't be on display but Mazda will showcase 15 different MX-5s. The company didn't go into specifics but promised we can expect everything from "auto show concepts to race cars to production models."

According to Mazda North America Operations CEO Jim O'Sullivan, "[The] MX-5 Miata is the quintessential Mazda and after 25 years, every vehicle in the lineup continues to feature some characteristic of MX-5: a fluid shifter, lightness on its feet, quickness around a corner, a fun-to-drive DNA." He went on to say "With all the whiz-bang technology and comfort amenities increasingly added to modern vehicles, MX-5's direct connection between car and driver still remains the standard feature that puts smiles on drivers' faces."
