Sneek Peek at the next RX-7!!!
Submitted by SuperUser on Monday, April 1, 2002 - 12:00am

April Fools! Yes, this was an April Fools joke, and for the 3rd year in a row, we got'chu! And for those that still didn't get it, did you know that they also took the word "Gullible" out of the dictionary?! The Ugly Ass Pontiac is not the next RX-7... Here's the orig posting:

We have the FIRST look at the prototype RX-7! It is a bit bigger than the last RX-7.

The 2004 RX-7 is uniquely capable of exploring a new dimension of driving excitement, blending the athletic performance of Mazda sedans with the versatility of minivans and the all-wheel-drive capabilities of SUVs.

For 2004, RX-7 sports a fresh new look with a monotone exterior and new rear spoiler. The RX-7 Type-RZ model has been dropped as Mazda switches to a two-model strategy: front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive.

For 2004, many once-optional features are now standard. The console/cooler that latches into the console between the front seats and holds up to twelve 12-ounce beverage cans is now standard. To further enhance RX-7's road appeal, 16-inch tires are standard to complete an aggressive Mazda appearance. Also in 2004, steering wheel radio controls will come standard with the Dual-play radio or the in-dash six-CD receiver.

Two optional cargo storage systems offer RX-7 owners versatility. A sliding rear cargo tray system supports up to 400 pounds of sports gear or home improvement materials. A dual-door pop-up unit on the right side of the tray can be subdivided into three segments that are great for holding loose gear.

An innovative all-wheel-drive system has been engineered specifically for RX-7. AWD directs torque to those wheels with the best traction on demand.

All RX-7s are powered by either a smooth, strong 3.4-liter OHV V6 engine packing 185 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 210 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm, or the RENESIS Rotary Engine pumping out 250 horsepower at 8500 rpm. The standard four-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission has adaptive calibration logic to provide consistently smooth, precise, and firm shifts throughout its life.
