Did Mazda Just Tease a Return of the RX-7?

Mazda Concept 1

For years, there has been rampant speculation that Mazda would once again bring life to the rotary engine. For years, there have been rumors that Mazda was secretly working on a successor to the RX-7 and RX-8. And for years, we’ve all been bitterly disappointed when Mazda shows up to the latest auto show with…nothing. That could soon be changing.

Mazda just issued a press release that could be the surest signal ever that the company is, in fact, working on a brand new sportscar to succeed the aforementioned RX series. At least, that’s what we all hope is the case.

According to Mazda, the company, “Will hold the world premiere of a new sports car concept model at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.” From the picture above, it definitely looks like it could be the real deal.


Above is a lightened version of the top picture that we manipulated to get a better sense of what the car lines are. The company stated that, “The design of the sports car concept to be unveiled in Tokyo is modern, but maintains a sense of lineage and authenticity, appearing almost to condense Mazda’s entire history of sports car development into a single model.”

We’re honestly on pins and needles, waiting for Mazda to unveil this concept. Is it the next RX? Is it a hard top MX-5 Miata? Or is it a brand new car that doesn’t succeed any previous car? We’ll know more soon. The Tokyo Motor Show begins October 29th, so stay tuned as more details become available.
