2011 mazda rx-8 Reviews and News

Rumors of a replacement for the Mazda RX-8 have been bubbling to the surface since the rotary-powered sports car went out of production in 2012. Although there are still no firm plans for a successor, RX-8 designer (and son of the RX-7’s designer) Ikuo Maeda is eager to bring the rotary-powered sports car back to life.

If your local gearhead is getting a little misty this week, he/she's got a good reason: Mazda just ended production of its Renesis rotary engine at its Hiroshima, Japan production facility.

Let's not mess about, mince words, or try to be coy about it: the RX-8 is fantastic.

2012 Mazda RX 8 SPIRIT R Front
Mazda announced it will build a final special edition of the RX-8 before production ends June next year. The Spirit R will be the grand finale for Mazda’s rotary-powered four-dour sports car which will go on sale exclusively in Japan November 24. The automaker expects to sell 1000 Spirit Rs.

It was a car in a class of one, and now it becomes a class of zero: Mazda has officially canceled the RX-8 after sales of the sports car have plummeted in the years following its release. The RX-8, which was released in 2003, was the only rotary-powered car on the market between 2003 and its demise this week. Using a 1.3-liter, twin-rotor Renesis engine, it produced 232 hp and had rear-wheel drive, which made it a joy to drive back when we first tested it. The car was, admittedly a little bit of a trade-off: it had more than enough power and low weight, but it required plenty of revs, had comparatively low torque figures, and gained a reputation for drinking fuel quickly and burning oil. Still, Mazda sold 23,690 in 2004 alone. As years went on these figures dropped – last year, sales were down by nearly one-half to 1,134 units. With upcoming European emissions regulations strangling the rotary engine (it’s no longer sold there, either) and Mazda’s new focus being its SkyActiv fuel-efficient engines, it looks like the RX-8, and its rotary heart, are gone. Gone, that is, for a little while. Keen watchers will remember that the RX-7’s demise in 1995 was followed with the RX-8’s debut in 2003, and Automotive News reports that there still may be plans for a 1.6-liter rotary engine, codenamed 16X, to be slotted into an upcoming car. In the meantime, Mazda’s sportiest offering is now the MX-5. As we’ve reported time and time again, Mazda’s Zoom Zoom philosophy couldn’t have a better acolyte. Source: Automotive News
