RX-8 Resumes Production: WITH A PISTON 302 ci V8
Submitted by Dan Mazzella on Friday, April 1, 2005 - 12:00am

In a surprise announcement, Head Engineer Eepuriru Fuuru said that Mazda has decided to discontinue use of the RENESIS engine in the RX-8. They have retooled the Rotary Engine Plant to produce a new Mazda Quad overhead cam V8 for use in the car. Today, Mazda re-started production of the RX-8 in Hiroshima, Japan, after the factory that was damaged in last December's fire was repaired. Under secret development for over 8 years Eepuriru-san stated the new V8 engine was derived from the Ford 302 used in the Mustang. After the plant fire, Ford/Mazda execs decided it was the perfect time to change Mazda's stance on the Rotary Engine, with this decision, the RX-8 will now be named the VX-8. will be changing our name to as soon as the paperwork for our LLC is completed by our lawyers.
Mazda will offer free Rotary to 302 V8 Conversions at all Mazda Dealers. Please click through to read the full details on the offer, and more details on the engine, and the future of the rotary engine.


Mazda will not put a piston engine in the RX-8, and the Rotary is safe... for another year.

If it ain't a rotor, it ain't a motor!
