Mazda Rebounds with a Rotary Connection
Submitted by SuperUser on Sunday, November 14, 1999 - 12:00am

Mazda watchers in recent years might have concluded the Ford-controlled Japanese concern was on a mission to become the world's most boring car company. The good news - this arch-conservatism seems to have achieved its goal: a return to profitability on the all-important home market. And now for some fun ...
The RX-Evolv is expected to go before the Mazda board soon. "We very much hope it will be given the green light for production," says Mazda Australia executive Mike Quist. "It is something we would love to have here."

Next RX-7?

Are these two "spy photos" actual photos of concept or
production cars that Mazda plans to introduce to the US?
Since MADS 1998, there has been rumors of alteast two (2)
Rotary powered vehicles that would be introduced by Mazda.
One has come to be, the RX-EVOLV, but are the two others real,
or just internet hocus-pocus?

Join the
threads
to voice your opinion
on these two rumored vehicles, and on the RX-EVOLV.

Mazda Press Release
Submitted by SuperUser on Friday, October 15, 1999 - 12:00am

The first sports cars
were barely civilized racecars, with only fenders and headlight
separating them from the cars on the track. As sports cars evolved
over the years, more creature comforts were added – tops, side
windows, heaters, air conditioning, and sound systems. Even with
this evolution, most sports cars have had only two seats. Until now.

The press embargo will be lifted on the 15th of October for news about the cars debuting at the
Tokyo auto show. This means this website will have official information from
Mazda about the new rotary powered vehicle.

Frankfurt Showcase shows Nextourer
Submitted by SuperUser on Thursday, September 30, 1999 - 12:00am

WIDTH=224 HEIGHT=90>

Webmasters Note: The image above is from Mazda
Australia's Official website.
The resemblance between the Nextourer and the image from Scoup is
striking. The Nextourer is the SUV from Mazda, not Rotary Powered,
but this isn't the point. The image is a good indication that the
image from busybeetoys.com is legit!


The NEXTOURER concept model has been designed as a stylish,
new-generation touring car which blends the comfort of a luxury saloon with the
versatility of an SUV - delivering the requirements for high speed touring, such
as excellent handling stability, a comfortable ride and a refined cabin, along
with high levels of functionality and flexibility.

From time to time, I'll post old Rotary News up here, and then archive it. Thanks to REPU Man--Toski Techfor submitting this gem!

The rising sun has reached Sunrise Hwy. and the only rotary-engined cars available in the US are now in almost every state.
Driving the RX-2 and RX-3 models is an extraordinary experience that sums up:
little engines, big performance! (Want to see my speeding ticket?)
