Making a comeback in 2017, Mazda has announced that the beloved RX-7 will be returning to dealerships just in time for the 50th anniversary of the Mazda Cosmo, the original Wankel-powered rotary sports car. As a new Mazda dealership in Orlando, Florida, Don Mealey’s Sport Mazda is excited for the return of this legacy setting coupe especially after Mazda retired their most recent sports car, the RX-8, in 2011. Where the RX-8 failed in fuel economy, the Japanese automaker is aiming to make a turn around and when taking Skyactiv into consideration, they are better equipped with environmentally friendly technologies that can make the new RX-7 a force to be reckoned with.
|The 2001 Mazda RX-7 (the last of the RX-7's) was only available in Japan leaving North American auto consumers without the opportunity to easily purchase without the hassle of international importing.|
Although little is known about the newest iteration in the lineage of Mazda’s greatest consumer sports car, some details have trickled out from the company’s sports car chief, Nobuhiro Yamamoto. Expect a lighter vehicle similar in weight to the Scion FR-S and closely priced to the Nissan 370Z, which is priced around $33,000 for the base model. More details will emerge as the time gets closer, but expect high demand leading up to its launch.
