A faster Sports-Car.. the RX-8 is nice but lets face it, it isnt that fast (Comparable to M3's, AMG's, Corvette's, Vipers, etc.)

A guy I know can beat out RX-8's with his MX-3, true he does have the KLZE engine, but still...

EDIT: Didnt see the Poll, maybe an RX-8 turbo would be an idea

I voted for a redesigned RX-7....I think Mazda could do with another high performanvr car!

By the way, I read in a magazine that Mazda's next MX-5 or Maita, as it's known as everywhere except Europe, will have the same front end as the current RX-8, and may even share it's rotary engine!

I don't think the RX-8 is supposed to be compared to M3's, AMG's, COrvette's, or Vipers. Have you looked at the price different lately?

although a new rx7 is farfetched, it would be nice to have it compete with cobras, evo, sti, 350z, etc.

ummm, am I the only person to notice that on the poll, it says Mazdaspeed versions of the Sentra, Maxima, and Altima? Am i on drugs, or arent those cars Nissan? The RX-7 FD is a great car, but too bad the Rotary engine in that things has ALOT of problems. The RX-8's rotary is supposedly more reliable, but no one has owned one long enough to actually comment on the reliability of it. And plus Rotary engines have a smaller list of aftermarked parts. The RX-7 is a very balanced car, great for drifting, but i wouldnt want to race the skyline or evo in a race. The RX-7 doesnt hold a candle in the handling department compared to the Skyline r34 and the evo5-8. Anyways, thats my
