Mazda RX-7

This rendering of the all-new Mazda RX-7 has appeared in a Japanese motoring magazine; if the real car looks anything like this image, then I’m sure you’ll join us in asking “where do we sign?”

According to the article, the next RX-7 will be an ‘ultra lightweight vehicle, direct injected 16X based RE with Hydrogen capability.’ It is also a car that is said to possess ‘razor sharp handling,’ according to the article.

While hydrogen tech remains unlikely – this is a car that’s rumoured to go on sale in 2017 – what we do know of the next RX-7 is that it will be powered by a Wankel engine (perhaps with turbocharging further down the line). It will also feature only two doors and two seats, unlike the RX-8 model of late.

Anyone else think this looks a little bit cool?

shut up

    As a Rotorhead, and RX-7 lover, this is the best thing that could ever happen in the motor-world. And it looks fucking sick!

    I think that almost all of mazda’s upcoming models look fantastic. I can’t be the only one.

      You aren’t alone – the CX-5 and Mazda 6 that were the first to use the “Kodo” face are great lookers (the 6 moreso) and even better in the driver’s seat.

    Shut up and take my money!!!

  • f u all

    It won’t look anything like it it will have 4 seats and no wankel engine

  • Luke

    Why not an RX-9?

  • Amir Firdaus

    Why is the rear looks like LFA?

    Time to open up a new savings account… lol

    I think the styling looks good but don’t call it the RX-7. They need to make the styling a little more like the old car, I think. Same goes for the new NSX.

  • Liam

    Should just call it something else… still use the RX prefix but not 7. I dunno RX-0, RX-U (ultimate) be creative mazda (like you are with your cars)

  • Dayton Sander

    Screw that, can we get Furai!!!

  • mototo
