The Mazda N platform is an automobile platform for FMR layout sports cars. It has been the basis for four generations of the Mazda MX-5, as well as the 2016 Fiat 124 Spider.


Mazda MX-5 (NA)

The NA utilized many components in-house, such as the 323/Familia/Protegé engine and 323 GTX differential (1.6L), RX-7 FC (non-turbo) differential (1.8L) and transmission, but the chassis was unique.


Mazda MX-5 (NB)

The NB was very close to the NA mechanically. Most changes were related to the vehicle systems, including electrical wiring and a new generation of the Mazda B engine.


Mazda MX-5 (NC)

The NC utilized a shortened version of the SE platform used by the RX-8. Many suspension and braking components are interchangeable with the RX-8, while some interior components are shared with the Mazda6, Mazda3, and CX-7.


Mazda MX-5 (ND)

ND is a new platform for the fourth generation of the MX-5.


Fiat 124 Spider

NE/NF is a variant of the ND platform for the 2016 Fiat 124 Spider. While the platform design is similar, the sheet metal and drivetrain are completely different, using the Fiat 1.4 MultiAir turbo 4 cylinder and an updated Mazda NC 6-speed manual transmission.
