There's one available on eBay, supposedly for the 3, RX-8 and Miata. I just added some oil additive the other day and noticed that the oil cap on the 2.3 doesn't exactly screw on but rather twist and pull, similar to the cap on an Asprin bottle. Any idea if this oil cap will actually fit?

No they're not.

Have no idea if the cap off Ebay will work. Would wait awhile for more aftermarket products to come out before buying much.

Sorry folks....

It Does not fit the 2.3

The 2.3 is a twist-lock and the hole is smaller, so no way to jam in the big boy unless you like lots and lots of oil under the hood.

The polished aluminum one off e-bay fits the Miata just fine, but that's a screw in...can't vouch for the 2 liter...I just don't know.
