The third generation RX-7 was only sold in the U.S. and Canada for three years despite a Japanese production from 1992–2002. These were produced in the sixth series and had a body called the JM1FD. All cars had the 252 hp 13B-REW engine with twin oil-coolers, an electric sunroof, cruise control and the rear storage bins in place of the back seats.
The 3rd generation RX7 was unveiled at the 1991 Tokyo Motor Show and appeared on North American shores two years later. The car’s reduced weight put it below the Acura NSX, MR2, Nissan 300ZX and the second generation RX7. This was achieved by a systematic analysis of every components which resulted in a lighter harness, muffler, glass and oil cooler.
