A Japanese auto rag has spun out what is probably the 14th speculative concept in the past ten years.
Being the product of a magazine?s audience-grabbing efforts, there?s little to be said about the production or power expectations. From a design perspective, the concept?s wedge-like style represents a massive departure from the Nagare language that Mazda is still very committed to, and that alone is evidence enough that any future RX-7 ? at least one built in the next five or so years ? won?t look anything like this.
And that?s the point, really: Mazda isn?t likely to introduce a new RX-7 ? a car which would obviously have to compete on a higher level than the FD?s engineers ever had to worry about ? in the current economic climate.
Mazda may continue to tease us with great looking concepts, but we probably shouldn?t expect to see a new RX-7 any time soon.
Still, it?s nice to dream, and being a car enthusiast is all about dreaming, right?
Here?s a few other concepts from the past, none of them official Mazda offerings.
