For those of you grew up with Fast dreams and Furious visions filling your world of wheels, I’m about to describe a scene of pure pornography. Imagine yourself surrounded by gorgeous examples of all-time heroes of the Japanese car world. A Mazda RX-2 and RX-3 flanked a Toyota Century. Datsuns gurgled through…
Under normal circumstances, a Mazda RX-7 Evo Group B Works car would be absolutely incredible to drive or own. One goes up for sale next month, except it has a unique twist—it’s never once been driven or raced.
On July 7, 2017, there was a meetup of Mazda RX-7 owners in New York City. RX-7s on 7/7/17. When I visited Times Square earlier this year, all I got to see was a horse poop as it walked down Broadway. An “army” of RX-7s would have been much better.
Formula Drift Japan is this weekend at nowhere else but the legendary Ebisu circuit. That means Mad Mike is there, and that means that we get to bask in the sights and sounds of a four-rotor Mazda RX-7 doing backwards entries and shredding eardrums.
Have you ever had a moment with a car? Just a brief couple of minutes in which you fell positively, uncontrollably head over heals for an automobile? I did one night in Hong Kong a while back, and now I can’t stop thinking about first-generation Mazda RX-7s.
Normally, people hate on engine-swapped Mazda RX-7s, as changing out the stock rotary engine makes the car too normal, too simple. This guy went the opposite direction, with a homebrew turbocharged and supercharged Toyota 1JZ straight six.
Every so often people ask me what I plan on doing to my car, and it’s hard to formulate an answer.
Nothing is a crueler feeling than seeing your car engineless, forlorn. No wait, there is a crueler feeling: having all of your coworkers torment you about it.
If you frequent this lovely car blog, you’ve probably been reading a lot about the Mazda RX-7 lately. But, this time, let’s just sit back and admire one for a bit.
“Project Ahura” is the world’s first all-wheel-drive four-rotor FD Mazda RX-7, and it’s exactly as insane as you’d expect it to be. It was built from a car that YouTuber Rob Dahm had since he was a teenager, and he’s here with a tour of everything under the hood that makes it work.
The 1990s Nissan R33 Skyline in this video has a 3.0 liter RB30DET, an engine that was never sold from the factory, an aftermarket-only hybrid of a high-displacement block with a twin-cam turbo head. It is one of the coolest straight sixes of the modern era, and it is still utterly silenced by the scream of a…
I don’t know if you know this, but despite his existing horde of barely-running Jeeps, our man David Tracy is dreaming of first-gen RX-7 ownership. I’ve been subtly trying to push him over the edge and buy one. Care to join me in this?
The first-generations of the Mazda RX-7 and Honda Civic are among the most important cars in Japanese automotive history. But when you buy a $1,500 beat-to-hell, 30+ year-old example of each of those cars, other adjectives start to surface.
Last night, Mazda CEO Masamichi Kogai abruptly shut down any notion that his company was currently working on a sports car larger than the existing Miata. This may in fact be the last word on the subject. Surprised? You should not be.
The turbocharged, rotary-powered FD Mazda RX-7 is one of the most legendary Japanese cars ever, but even with modifications, it was never really the hypercar-slayer that its owners dreamed it to be—until now. Here’s everything you need to know about what could be the most powerful and unique Mazda RX-7 ever made.
Normally people swap out the rotary engines in their Mazda RX-7s because they want something more simple. A nice chassis, a beautiful design, no more worrying about apex seals. This guy did just that, except the opposite, because he did swap in a conventional piston engine, but he supercharged and turbocharged it.
