Mazda has no plans for supporting the Mazdaspeed 3.

The Korean automaker recently unveiled a new generation of the 3 hatchback and sedan. But those wanting to see more of the high-performance variation, the Mazdaspeed, are left empty-handed.

According to a statement by Mazda CEO Akira Marumoto during this year's Los Angeles Autoshow, the company has no plans for the MPS at this time. Marumoto explained that the company wants to focus in greater detail on the current lineup to compete with other premium brands.

Mazdaspeed began as an in-house performance team in 1967. They peaked in the mid-2000s, offering two different models to the public. While the vehicles were well received, though it's hiatus is understandable.
