New Mazda / Toyota Rotary coming
« on: March 23, 2016, 09:02:09 PM »
Just watched the Geneva Motor show on the Motors TV Auto Mundial show :00123102:.

The star of the show out of the many concept cars was the Rotary,

The commentator said that yes, there will be another Rotary, which he dubs as the new RX-8, then and goes on to imply that this Rotary will probably be due to the  Toyota tie up which now gives Mazda the stability to continue  Rotary development.

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Also came across the following which is a patent application that Mazda has made in U.S. in respect to rotary engine development:

It will be interesting to see where all this leads.

Yep, Mazda gave the green light for the rx9 :-) Will be 2019-2020 when the production car will be ready.
