Mazda Miata PRHT Special Edition
The simple Mazda Roadster is one of my favorite cars of all time. It's light, nimble, and pure in its purpose as a true driver's car. The PRHT Special Edition adds a healthy smattering of go-faster bits, creature comforts, and a power retractable hard top that raises and lowers at the touch of a button.

The good: The 2012 Mazda Miata Special Edition offers one of the purest driving experiences available in a new car today. The PRHT lowers in under 12 seconds. Fuel economy is reasonable even when driving with zest.
The bad: Navigation, Bluetooth A2DP streaming, and USB/iPod connectivity are still missing from the Miata's option list.
The bottom line: The 2012 Mazda Miata PRHT Special Edition adds rarity to one of the best drivers' cars of this generation, but the omission of the most basic cabin-tech options severely hurts its score.
