The Sera has Enzo styled doors. Those are NOT scissor doors. The Scissor doors are what comes on Lamborghini Diablo/Murci..

The Gullwings came in the SL.

Eunos is another brand of Mazda (usually sole in Australia). The MX3 equivalent for Eunos is the Eunos 30X (I missed typing the 30X part). The green Miata as seen in the post is the Eunos roadster.

Cynos is the asian name for the Toyota Paseo, which in turn is a coupe version of the 2-door Tercel.

That's the MX3 from the looks of it but I have my own doubt because of the head lamps. MX3 as I understood came with those lift up lamps.

Guys correct me if i'm wrong?

Thats MX-5/Miata. Miata is RWD vs this being FWD.

Cyrus here is correct - though he has not mentioned the type of door



The lambos have scissor doors - they are hinged at the front and they go up and down only.

The 300 SL gullwing has (no points for guessing) gullwing doors - they are hinged on the top (Like a seagull's wings).

The Koenigsegg CCR has Dihedral Synchro-Helix doors....umm..yeah. They are the only ones in this list that do more than just pivot on one axis. They pivot upwards but slide out at the same time.

And getting to the point...the sera, just like the Enzo and Mclaren F1 has Butterfly doors, they go up and out. Usually hinged on the front and the roof.

It surely looks like Mazda Az 3.

It surely is not a EUNOS. My friend here owns the Miata and i know that the above car is not a MIATA.

Though its bumpers and other features resemble the Mazda clan.
