Mazda will unveil at the Tokyo Auto Show the RX-7 Coupe, a concept with design cues inspired by the Kabura and Ryuga, as well as other Mazda DNA. The RX-7 will be the first Mazda Rotary Coupe since the third-generation RX-7 launched in 1991.
The car will feature a particularly distinctive exterior design, with lightweight, compact and high-output next generation RENESIS(2) rotary engine. It will epitomize Mazda’s spirit of sports car, as the RX-7 won popularity among the customers since its 1978 launch. The last RX-7 model (FD3S) ended a 10 year production run in August 2002, and is sometimes still regarded as the pinnacle of Mazda Engineering and Design.
The RX-7 is in its 3rd generation. Production was stopped in 2002, but RX-7 remains the greatest technical achievement Mazda ever did. The question is: is the RX-7 Concept that will be unveiled in Tokyo a preview of the 4th generation of the model launched in 1991? We will have to wait for the Auto Show to come and see!
