Okay, so they didn’t wait till a million before breaking into the really big song and dance, but 900,000 is kinda good enough to pop the bubbly, in this case.

That’s the number of MX-5s Mazda has churned out in the past 21 years and 10 months, which makes it the best selling two-seater sportscar in the world. Actually, that’s a title the roadster has held for a while now – back in 2000, it was certified by Guinness World Records as the world’s best selling two-seater sportscar when production reached 531,890 units in May of that year.

Since then, Guinness updated the record when production passed 700,000 and 800,000 units, and now Mazda is reapplying to have the record updated to acknowledge production of the 900,000th vehicle. The car remains the longest-running model in Mazda’s global line-up.

Since its introduction in February 1989, the MX-5 has undergone two complete product redesigns and a series of upgrades. As it heads toward the next production milestone of one million units, Mazda says it is committed to further evolving the roadster, and will refine its fun-to-drive character and further enhance its environmental and safety capabilities as it makes its way toward the mark. Do we hear 1.5 million, then?
