Next Generation Mazda RX-7 - Back From The Grave?

Spinout

Aug 1, 2009

Rotary heads unite. Despite the economic downturn, or perhaps more precisely because they believe it will soon rebound, Mazda is marching forward in developing its next Mazda RX-7.

The rumor mill has been quite chatty with under-the-radar reports that Mazda is still actively optimizing its rotary engine for the RX-7 comeback. The new plant, dubbed 16X, features two 800cc rotors for a total displacement of 1.6 liters. Power is estimated to be in the 260 to 280 horsepower area. A good deal of attention has been placed on fuel efficiency of the engine and weight reduction in the chassis. We back this plan 100 percent. The RX-8 is too much touring, the scene needs a real powerhouse performance-oriented rotary.
