Mazda RX-7 could make a comeback with a new rotary engine

Mazda RX-7 could make a comeback with a new rotary engine

If the RX-7 left a big rotary shaped hole in your heart, then dab away those tears as Mazda may bring it back in the next couple of years. According to a report by Autoweek, the Japanese carmaker is readying an all-new RX-7 which may be poised as a successor to the popular RX-8. 

The model in question could be powered by a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated rotary engine with two or three rotors. With around 250bhp on tap, the little engine should be able to give the car some serious performance on the road. 

The report also talks about Mazda’s quest to keep the next-gen RZ-7 as light as possible, so as to keep the enthusiasts happy. Considering the car’s arch rival at the time – the next-gen Toyota GT86, it will be a big task for Mazda to properly blend the relatively low power output with a lightweight chassis.

Expected to go on sale sometime in 2015, the all-new generation RX-7 could make its global debut at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, where Mazda introduced everyone to the original model back in 1989.
