    Rotary engines really cools! German cars and engines are great
     
  2. Only one flaw, though. Too many doors. If they had stuck with a coupe version, this would have been dynamite! RX-8 Sedan? Doesn't sound right.
    But the engine is awesome. I gotta give Mazda credit for their innovation in utilizing this unique engine configureation. If you think about it, it's a much more efficient design. Instead of pushing pistons up and down, you get rotors that only spin in one direction; no reverse action to start slowing things down. Thats why it reaches such phenominal revs. It takes much less of an internal beating than a piston configuration.

    you can tell they were reluctant to include the rear doors - practically hiding them
     
  4. Re: They almost got it right.

    this car was meant for four doors. mazda is planning o releasing the rx-7 to the U.S. again depending on the sales of the rx-8. thats the reason why this car gets four doors.
