I'm starting to shop for a Miata 2014-2016. I want a hardtop (or removable hard top, not fabric). Is this type of top associated with a particular model? Is it an option? In other words, what am I looking for when I Google used Miatas?

Hi Steve,

I think the answer is basically no, there is no particular model that is associated with hardtops. The PRHT (Power Retractable Hardtop) is an option on all models (?) as is a removable hardtop. You just need to find a Miata that has one of these. I have the PRHT and really like it. I had Triumph GT6s, hardtop (non-removable), and Spitfires, soft-top, for years and really like the PRHT as the best of both worlds. A removable hardtop is a pain because it still leaves you with the decision of 'top up or top down' when you go out but you are really stuck with your decision, unlike with a soft-top.

Thanks! That answers that. So driving a vehicle without a roof is considered a good thing, huh? Frankly I don't get it - but then I'm not an afficionado. smiling smiley

Actually you can purchase a removable hardtop for NC models from a dealer.

2 years ago I bought a brand new (in box and crated) OEM hardtop from a dealer in New Mexico. I bought it out-of-state to save State tax which went into shipping. It was shipped right to my garage door.

Check:
HARDTOP A3F BRILLNT BLACK, Part Number: NH52V4630 75; NF77R1810MPZ; NFY2R181X 75; NFY2R181XE75.
