2017 Mazda MX5 Miata RF PairDon’t say that Mazda don’t ever spoil you; the 2017 MX-5 Miata RF will be released to dealers like Tracy Mazda a whole two months early. Beating Santa to the punch, the hotly-anticipated retractable hardtop model is now rolling out across the country. We’ll take that over the annual stocking-fillers without a second thought. Here’s a quick reminder of what the RF model will bring.

The 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata Early Release

Mazda might be making driving enthusiasts all across the country light up, but they really put a smile on the face of a man named Dave Putter. He met with CEO Masahiro Moro at the Los Angeles Auto Show to receive his keys for the MX-5 RF Launch Edition, one of 1000 Launch Edition models to be offered this year.

The Putter MX-5 RF was air-freighted to Huntington Beach in our own native state of California, and additional models will be arriving nationwide for early December. If Putter should drive north through Manteca and Stockton in his new prize, he’ll soon see some equally excited drivers accompanying him.

Class-Leading Retractable Hardtop

Drawing its name “Retractable Fastback” from its iconic KODO design, the RF is clearly the standout feature of the MX-5 Miata RF. It’s the fastest hardtop in the industry, opening your ride up to the great outdoors in just 12.5 seconds and then retracting at speeds of up to 6 mph.

Your open-air experience will set the wind coursing through your hair thanks to an exceptional 2.0L SKYACTIV®-G engine, which comes mated to SKYACTIV®-MT six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission to deliver up to 155-hp and 148 lb.-ft. of torque. Double wishbone front suspension and multi-link suspension in the rear creates a smooth and controlled ride.

The RF even benefits from exclusive Club and Grand Touring trim levels, and it’s to be the only MX-5 variant to be offered with eye-catching liquid-metal-like Machine Gray Metallic paint.
