Medium sized and large cars should be rwd, but the weight savings of fwd are relatively more the less a car weighs. Small fwd is more agile and has a better power to weight ratio compared to rwd.
So why would Mazda take the time to develop a low volume platform specific RWD chassis for their Miata roadster, when they could have better performance from one of their existing FWD platforms that were readily available? Oh right, because RWD handles better...
