2020 Mazda Rx7 Redesign And Review – 2020 mazda rx7
Remember how abounding iterations of the Nissan GT-R we saw afore its debut? Mazda could accept a agnate plan for the acknowledge of what will eventually become the RX-9. Though, we accept our fingers beyond for a two-pronged access that would see a new production-ready RX-7 aggressive anon with abutting Nissan Z and the RX-9 activity up adjoin the abutting GT-R.
No amount how it all plays out, it absolutely looks like we’ll be seeing a new rotary-powered Mazda in the abutting six years. Word is, abundant of Mazda’s R&D agents had been assigned to the new MX-5 project, but now that it’s been all but finalized, engineers accept been reallocated to the new rotary project.
Mazda has targeted an achievement of about 450 application for its abutting rotary engine, and to accommodated that target, it’s appear up with a few new tricks. The 1.3-liter Renesis that aftermost saw assignment in the RX-8 will be replaced by a beyond twin-rotor arrangement, and could be able with an arresting new twin-turbo system. One turbo would be a acceptable exhaust-mounted assemblage to advice out with top-end power, while addition abate turbo would use an “electric turbo assist” action that should advice acuminate low-end burke response.
Also actuality advised is a capacitor that would autumn activity beneath deceleration to be stored as electricity. The stored activity could again be deployed it on demand, agnate to the ability units currently acclimated in Formula 1. A arrangement like this could go a continued way in acclamation shortcomings commonly associated with rotary engines, namely, bad ammunition economy, low torque and aerial emissions.
As admirable as it would be to accept two shiny, new rotary-powered Mazdas on exhibit floors by the end of the decade, we anticipate the added acceptable book is the one laid out by Motoring. Expect to see a new RX-7 abstraction in 2017 and a assembly adaptation alleged the RX-9 in 2020.
It seems absurd that there would be acceptable appeal for two rotary-powered sportscars in Mazda’s lineup. Even if a assembly RX-7 and RX-9 active two altered achievement brackets and amount points, it would be a difficult action to justify. There’s additionally the accident of a average archetypal putting the clasp on MX-5 sales. Still, we’d adulation to be accurate wrong.
Any way you attending at it, Wankel admirers accept a lot to get aflame about.
Mazda admirers accept been patiently apprehension the accession of the abutting RX-7 back the aftermost one was discontinued in 2002. The RX-8 was a appropriate aftereffect back it accustomed in 2003, but was outshined by the Nissan 350Z, which was bigger by about every measure.
We’d be appealing blessed if the RX-9 concluded up attractive article like this apprehension from 2011. It’s anticipation the new car will allotment the aforementioned basal accommodation as the last-generation RX-7 — compact, continued hood, and a sleekly profiled greenhouse. Combine this with a birr of the best contempo change of Mazda’s architecture accent apparent on the MX-5, and you’re apparently on the appropriate trajectory.
