it is about the style
Submitted by No Rotor on Sunday, July 25, 2004 - 12:45pm

i dont think that using an rx-8 body for the rx-7 is acceptable...the rx-7 when in it first debut in 1993 in the states was totally awesome from the second gen rx-7..the third gen was a hit that mazda had designed as its own custom built design..the 3rd gen was not based on a porsche as was the 1st gen or any other car. rumors about the supra being based on a ferrari was found to be true and i thought it was revolting. the next gen rx-7 should have its own platform without any traces of an rx-8..it should be the sickest and wickedest looking and performing ride on the face of this earth and mazda can do it! whether the engine is a renesis or a 20b, that doesnt concern me, as long as it is reliable, fast as hell, and (up to its reputation) a total eye catcher i myself will put down 30 g or more for it.

Sounds like you have quite a discerning eye for style and detail. Submit a few sketches here and we'll critique them for you.

Im quite happy with the rx8, but yeah im not a firm believer in a 4th gen. Mazda really has no incentive to, theres no effin reason to make a sports car in the same class as the rx8 when it was just released in 04.

In my opinion, for today's taste - The Kabura is right on.
If it's affordable & quick enough, of course it will sell.
Would it steal sales from MX-5 & RX-8? Probably some.
Would it steal sales from other makers? Probably a lot.
After a few years of reputation building, a renesis engine would make a sweet option.
Then you could call it the Kabura RX-7.
