A lot of the MX-5's DNA is shared with the original Lotus Elan, launched in 1963. John puts on his best overalls to look on the internet and find out.

I recently had the chance to drive the old and new MX-5 back to back. How far have things come in nearly 30 years?
The MX-5 has a longstanding reputation for being a great drivers car - but what makes it so much fun?
