R.I.P. Mazda RX8

Post by Slider S15 on Tue 23 Aug 2011 - 23:10

Ladies and Gentlemen The Mazda RX8 is dead.

Mazda today announced that they would no longer be making the RX8 due to falling sales and stricter emissions laws.

Not only is this the end of a great car both astheticly and dynamicly, but it could also be the death of Mazda's legendary rotary engine something truely sad in a world where car's seem to be getting duller by the day.

So please a mark of respect for the late... great... Mazda RX8...

Kinda sad, but not too surprised. Never got into the Wankels anyways.. But such a shame a nice car disappearing.

Tbh, I never did care much for the design of the RX-8. Liked the RX-7 better. Maybe the next RX-'9' would be better?
