Need advice on buying an RX-7
Submitted by promising on Wednesday, April 25, 2007 - 10:41am

Hey All,

I'm in the market for a used car. I've been pining for the 93-94 RX-7 Twin 2. It's absolutely gorgeous. I want it stock too so I can do everything from scratch. But, I'm totally dumb when it comes to the rotary engine. What should I be looking for? Where can I get information? What questions should I be asking the seller? Is there a specific model I should be looking for? What should I be aware of? Pros? Cons? What is the competitive price for a quality RX-7? Thanks, guys. I know it's a lot to ask but I figure I'd just go ahead and ask.

Just found a great article on the 93 RX-7
at ROADANDTRACK.com. Go to the sight,
type Mazda RX-7 in the search bar. There's
a nice article on the 93 RX-7 with a brief history.
It explains why it's a driver's car. Enjoy!

I have a '90 Mazda RX7 convertible which I am considering sending to my son in Los Angeles. Does anyone know whether these cars have a hard time passing the emmissions standards in California? I am in Texas.

If you don't know much about Rotary Engines don't even
go there until you gain some experience. I agree the car
is absolutely beautiful but they are also complicated; so,
if you don't have a great rotary mechanic available and
you don't know anything about rotaries I hope you have
lots of money!
P.S. That doesn't mean you can't do research and learn,
I just would not jump in with the 3rd generation 7.

You own two of the 2nd generation 7s. In 93 the 3rd
generation RX-7 appeared on the US market.
You didn't state whether your 7s were turbo or not,
the 3rd generation is a two stage turbo with one
stage on at all times to eliminate lag.
The third gen 7 I believe is around 270hp.
(don't hold me to the exact number)
Your cars look alot like the Porche 944, the 3rd gen 7
has all smooth round edges and is extremely beautiful.
It is in the movie "The Fast and the Furious".
P.S. Yours are beautiful too!
