New RX-7 for 2006?
« on: August 01, 2003, 09:23:33 AM »
According to Autocar (30 July UK) Mazda are working on a new RX-7 expected to be on sale in 2006. Codenamed J77 it will be a 2 door coupe with a possible fabric hood or folding hard-top cabrio variant.

Power will come form a reworked Renesis (RX-8) 2 rotor engine. The rotors will be widened and the block stiffened raising the displacement from 1.3 to 1.6 litres. The naturally aspirated version is expected to generate around 300bhp. Work is also being done on a supercharged version but no performance figures are available.

Start saving those pennies....

Ciaran.
