I seriously doubt this will happen with all the safety requirements on today's cars. To get the MX-5 down to those levels would require use of exotic materials(think Lotus Elise) which would raise the price of the car to a point which would take it out of it's intended market. The NC was supposed to be lighter as well, but it didn't happen. I also bet the Z2(if it actually goes into production) will be far more expensive than the MX-5.
