Mazda recently announced plans to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the MX-5 Miata at the New York Auto Show but a new report is indicating the company will also display the chassis of the 2015 MX-5 in the Big Apple.

Little is known about the chassis itself but it will presumably be lightweight as previous reports have indicated the model could weigh as little as one tonne (2,204 lbs).

Engine options remain unconfirmed but rumors have suggested there will be a naturally-aspirated 1.5-liter SKYACTIV-G four-cylinder that develops more than 100 HP (74 kW) and 150 Nm (110 lb-ft) of torque. There could also be a 2.0-liter SKYACTIV-G engine but nothing is official as of yet.

The New York Auto Show kicks off on April 16th, so expect to learn more details next month.
