Where can I find insurance for a 2010 Mazda Miata?

"I'm 17 and this will be my first car. Is this a good car? Will I be able to find affordable insurance for it?"

“You will be able to find car insurance for your vehicle, but it will most likely be expensive. Driving a sports car is considered high risk to insurance companies. Since you are a new driver, your rates will be even higher.
If you’re concerned about price, you should request car insurance quotes from multiple carriers with the coverage you’ll need. Once you have an idea of the cost, you should also look into insuring a different vehicle for the same coverages.
A standard vehicle, like a Nissan Altima or Toyota Corolla, are great ways to compare how your rate may change based on the vehicle you drive.
If you get rates back for the Miata and they’re affordable, great! If not, it may be worth considering another type of vehicle for your first car.”
