Interesting, what does it look like from the rear?

Looks pretty cool. I wonder how much that mechanism weighs compared to the soft top. If the top panel is aluminum, it's probably not that much heavier.

Looks like a SmartTop might not be the best idea for the ND-RF, though. I'd hate to see how hard it is to get that folding mechanism aligned properly again if wind tweaks it because you're operating it at speed. :shock:

Yes I managed to watch the reveal in NY. Quite impressive. I like the Targa look and I'm sure it won't be long before Mods4Cars has a way to break the 6 MPH limitation of the RF.

Still waiting to see the specs and pricing. I assume there is still the central roof latch as in the NC.

Estimates of added weight vary from 150 to 200 lbs, but nothing official from Mazda. Sure is a looker, but probably mostly for the touring / GT crowd, as that's a lot of weight up high for the performance crowd. Still, I expect it will appeal to a wider audience and add to overall sales, which is good for all of us.

Are there any views from the rear with the top down? I wonder if the rear window is in place with the top down.

Window goes down with the top and lays flat under it, leaving nice new acrylic wind blocker in place.
