Is this the next-generation MX-5 Miata roadster?

The MX-5 Miata is expected to go on sale in the U.S. market next summer.

Ahead of its media reveal next month, an Instagram user in Japan may have snagged an early glimpse of the next-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata roadster.

A Miata fan snapped a photo of a roadster wrapped in line-blurring camouflage, but the car’s proportions make it seem like a plausible sighting of Mazda’s fourth-generation roadster.

Our colleagues at Autoweek say the giveaway is the rims used on the current-gen car. All will be revealed when Mazda officially unveils the MX-5 to journalists Sept. 5 in Monterey, Calif.

The MX-5 is expected to go on sale in the U.S. market next summer for the 2016 model year.
