Re: Are they still producing these?

i know the next GT-R will be out by 2007, but the other 2 are pure speculation.

Re: Are they still producing these?

The 7 was produced untill 2000 (if I'm not mistaken) in Japan, they just didn't want to send them over here any more. which is too bad, their fun little cars to beat the shit out of. not too many 1.1 and 1.3L cars that can hang with, if not blow the doors off most V6 and with little work V8's

Re: Are they still producing these?

It's sad because the RX-7 basically saved the performance based engine........

Re: Are they still producing these?

the rx-7 would of died out due to it's engine design... the wankel was ingenious, but it's reliability
(i beleive something about improper placement of the exhaust) kept it down, along with overheating problems. I like the fact that the rx-8 fixes these problems, but its underpowered and its bodylines, although beautiful, aren't the same as a rx-7's
