    New Mazda Sports Car

    I'm actually really excited about this. I just hope Mazda finally gives a car more than 300 horses. Their current design language, fun-car DNA, and a ~350hp engine will be a great affordable sports car option.

    Mazda has long been rumored to be working on a new rotary-powered sports car, with a launch either in 2017 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the Cosmo Sport (Mazda’s first rotary-powered car and the first volume production car to feature such an engine), or perhaps in 2020 to coincide with Tokyo’s hosting of the Olympic Games.

    Few details were released along with the teaser. Mazda only states that the concept features a modern design, albeit one influenced by the automaker’s sports cars of the past. Incidentally, Mazda will showcase alongside the new concept an original 1967 Cosmo Sport as well as some additional heritage models.

    Yea the render is sexy, but doesn't look like the shadow. Guess we'll know what's real at the end of the month.

    Yeah.. I didn't think I was the only one seeing it. I was always a fan of the 93+ RX7.. the RX8 left me cold tho. My old C5, Mary Jane, always reminded me of the RX7 tho

    If they don't throw a turbo on the rotary they can look to the Toyota/Subaru twins and divide by two for their sales expectations.
