Thanks for sharing this Clive. It\'s indeed a great info/news. Do you know what that sky-active RX7 would offer to the perspective buyers? Can you put a deposit down for one? As i cant wait to have one lolll Or I guess it\'s time to start saving ;)

Well chuffed with this news :).. I just hope that the news is reliable and not merely intended to get our hopes high.

Cheers

Sky active? So does that mean its a piston engine:(? Or are they releasing a rotary under their skyactive brand?

Welcome to 2011 Grant :P

Oct 11, 2011

As noted by Autoblog, the tweet is a naturally spartan form of communication, even in Japanese. But our favorite machine translators tell us that it\'s not so much the character count as it is the official stance that\'s limiting the content about the next rotary.

The tweet starts with a thank-you to fans of the RX-8 and the rotary, and goes on to say that Mazda is "zealously developing" the next generation of the rotary engine--with the benefit of its Skyactiv fuel/emissions technology, closing with another thanks for the continued support.

Presumably it will be the flagship car for the laser ignition tech as well?

Several companies have laser ignition working, faster and more complete ignition is the path to efficiency...

Time to start saving I think!

Apparently putting details of your car spec in your signature means the nice folks on exile-rotorsport think you\'re a fool.  I can think of no higher compliment!

My "spy" has sent me this as the images to go with the announcement which is the Kabura concept

Obviously I dont expect it to look the same but if you think back to the Evlolve (pictured below) which became the RX-8, I would expect it to look something fairly close
All the best Clive

Wasn\'t that branded the rx9? It\'s very 370z, if the front became a little more aggressive then I\'m in:D

Great news! I hope this wipes the floor with the overpriced nonsense that is the GT86!
