The second generation Mazda MX-5 (Miata in the US) was the first, and so far only, generation to see a Coupe version offered, even if it was a limited edition, Japan only model.

The MX-5 Coupe version of Mazda's popular roadster featured new sheetmetal from the doors back, and unlike most hardtop versions of convertible models the MX-5 Coupe is actually slightly heavier than the roadster.

The Mazda MX-5 Coupe was offered in three different trim levels, the highest spec was the Type-A which was identifiable by a deeper front and rear bumper, extended wheel arches, a rear spoiler, horizontal aluminium grille inserts and inset front fog lights. Power for the MX-5 Coupe Type A came from a 1.8 litre, inline four cylinder engine which produced 158 horsepower. Sending the power to the rear wheels was a 6 speed manual transmission. Only 200 MX-5 Coupe Type A's were produced.

The next level of trim was the Type E. The Mazda MX-5 Coupe Type E was orientated more around comfort than all out performance. Inside are electric windows and a luxurious leather trim. Under the bonnet was the same 1.8 litre engine as the Type A, however due to the use of a 4-speed automatic transmission power was limited to 154 bhp. Outside, the styling of the Type E is more bland and uses a silver mesh front grille, more rounded bumpers and the rear spoiler is blended into the trunk lid. Only 150 Type E models were produced.

The most basic spec MX-5 Coupe model is the Type S. Other than the fixed roof the styling of the Type S is almost identical to the regular soft-top MX-5. Engine options for the MX-5 Coupe Type S included a 125 horsepower 1.6 litre and the 158 horsepower 1.8 litre unit. Production of the Type S was not limited although it was never officially sold outside Japan.
