I want to say the 1990 model did. It was given as an option in the US. I don't know how popular it was but I do know someone who had an early NA Miata with an automatic.

Auto tranny in an MX-5 makes as much sense as putting a 6 speed manual on Dodge Caravan...LMAO!!

I have number 642 off the line in 1989 and it is an automatic it is pretty rare.

Here is a picture of first year automatic number 642 off the line
