The Mazda RX-7 will be based on the Taiki concept unveiled this year at the Tokyo Motor Show. The replacement for the model produced until 1996 in Europe and 2003 in Japan will be unveiled within two or three years.

The new RX-7 will be the first Mazda to benefit from the new exterior design theme that it has developed through a series of four concept cars (Nagare, Ryuga, Hakaze and Taiki) inspired by the idea of ‘flow’.

The RX-7 will be powered by a rotary-engined that will feature direct injection and turbocharged. The output will be around 250 hp. The RX-7 will provide a smaller, lighter and more overtly sporty alternative to the new RX-8.

The guy who supposedly has a Cobra started it. Ak made some good points which probably pissed you off. If you don’t like it , don’t write anything.

You are the girl for writing a comment like that.

Funny to see two idiots argue about whose car is faster grow up girls.

....And Mystic.
This is the same car which when compared to the new Dodge Viper in 1993 was reported the better car and is still regarded as one of the finest and best handling cars of all time.

Also- The RX-8 with it small, naturally aspirated displacement 1.3L engine does 0to60 in 7 seconds. Imagine what the RX-7 can do since it is intended to be a performance car.

The RX7 won the IMSA GTU championships seven years in a row. Can you name any American car that did that?-No? Well thats because they didn’t.

As for your Cobra, I don’t think think that the RX7 is supposed to compete with them but even with the factory tuned version this car has enough to take on your Cobra because you see-Horsepower isn’t everything. American cars are prove of that, they have high hp ratings but take the 0to60 like pregnant women. A four cylinder 260hp EVO is more than a match for any of your sh*tty cars.

AS for the RX 7, a few modifications will have it delivering between 500 to 700 hp and that will be enough to take on any f**king Cobra.
