Nagare 3 rotor
December 20, 2007 - 12:50pm
I understand the concerns about oil consumption on a 3 rotor. The new 3 rotor ( I favour and want a 3 rotor.) should be of the lightened rotor type ( new engine developed, the 1600 cc rotors I believe ) and should work on hybrid gasoline and hydrogen. With hydrogen, the mileage concerns would be addressed, as well as being enviromentally friendly. The oil consumption is a rotary thing, and all rotorheads should not worry about it. I am glad to check on my oil every week, no problems. I had old piston engines that did not leak oil, but sure burnt it like crazy, a quart every 200 miles is not unheard of in worn piston engines.
I am done with piston engined cars with awesome HP and torque numbers, while our rotaries keep being mild mannered, we need a 3 rotor, even a special super sports rotary 4 rotor vehicle.
3 rotors for me, I would not accept another twin rotor super rotary, we need a real super rotary, which is not far from reality, the Mazda Cosmo JC was sold already in Japan more than 10 years ago.

Please replace the RX-7 with Renesis and make it CC.
I can`t wait for this.I have an RX-8 but it`s not so fast.
The new RX-7 should look like with the RX-8.

Larger cubic in 2 rotor is the way to go.

Mazda should make a larger cubic inch 2 rotor Wankle. A 3 rotor would be awsome, but I am sure that a small motor with big power is the wat to go.
What does everybody else think?

I agree, the 3-rotor is incredibly heavy and pretty complicated. Throw in that 'rumored' 1.5L Mazda's been working on. More torque, less weight!

The one thing no one has addressed besides the increase
in fuel usage is the increase in oil usage with the three rotor.
Since every rotor housing has to be lubricated, that means
you would have to add a quart of oil every 750 to 1000 miles
when the engine is new.
I believe the 1.5 would be the way to go for us common folk.
I believe the 3 rotor would be OK in a high perfomance limited
addition RX-7 whatever it costs. The Porsche 911 has quite
a clientele and I think it's time for some competition for it.
With the publicity of the successful Speedsource RX-8, I believe
it's time to have a 3 rotor 7. Use it as a halo car just the
way the RX-8 is being used right now. Keep the 8 for us old
geezers, keep it practical the way it is, but let the speed animals
have and pay for the 7.
Mazda is becoming known for racing, now it's time to make
the move even if it costs a little more.
I have believed since the 70s, the best endurance engines
are the Porsches and the Mazda rotaries.
