Over the Back Fence: 2010 Mazda RX-7

Despite a small issue with verb tenses, How Stuff Works apparently has a line on the 2010 Mazda RX-7. The info comes by way of Consumer Guide, which says a return of the RX-7 is imminent, possibly as a replacement for the aging RX-8. Word is the new RX-7 will ride on a stretched MX-5 platform. That means 2+2 seating. Perhaps the most notable tidbit is the possibility for a new booster rocket atop the Renesis rotary. That is, a turbocharger assisted by an electric motor at low rpm. That novel hybrid system would both widen the power band and reduce the rotary's nagging low-rpm emissions. As for styling, speculators say look to the 2006 Kabura concept (shown) for clues.
