REPORT: New Mazda RX-7, With Turbo Rotary, Coming In 2013

All aboard the speculation train! The rumors surrounding Mazda’s new RX-7 don’t stop coming, and with the demise of the RX-8, its a safe bet that Mazda will follow up their quirky four-door sports car with something more conventional.

Mazda is allegedly targeting the VW Scirocco as a rival for the new car, to be given the dubious “RX-9” moniker. Reports say that a rotary in conjunction with an “electric turbocharger” (we hope they mean some kind of range extender and not the kind you buy on Ebay) should cure the rotary’s chief issues; low torque and loqw fuel economy.

Aesthetics-wise, the car is said to take some cues from the questionable “Nagare” design language, even though Mazda officially canned it.

If this is the case, we might be better off waiting for the all-new MX-5 and keeping our fingers crossed.
