If you're talking about a gen 3 rx-7 then it has 2 ROTORS, double-rotory twin-turbo. As for the seats not sure if the front are bucket but the rear isn't. And I think the genesis rotary motor is great.

umm back seat???

was an option for the FB and FC. dont think its even avalible for the US spec FD....

the seats are sport seat essentially. good feel. kinda uncomfortable for long trips. leather was an option for all years.

but i warn you now, as the resident RX7 guy. they are attention whores. and unless you can work on your own car, i dont recommend it for you.

back seats...some FC's do have back seats which makes them 4-seaters
FD's...NONE!
