After being without one since the RX-8 was discontinued in 2012, Mazda is now reportedly bringing two new rotary-powered models to their lineup. The pair will include a new RX-7 and a never before seen Mazda RX-9 concept that could premiere as early as 2017.
The first rotary for the brand was the Mazda Cosmo that debuted in 1967. The Mazda RX-9 concept rotary-powered car would be a sporting compact coupe that takes design queues from the popular MX-5. It will have a long hood, a sleek body, and a glistening paint job that makes the car a true spectacle.
Top Speed reports that Mazda has made it known that they “want to surprise everyone in 2017 with something special to celebrate the birth of rotary…Then, to celebrate the company’s 100th birthday, we want to take it to another level in 2020.” From the sounds of it, we will be getting both the Mazda RX-7 and a Mazda RX-9 concept! The arrival of the RX-7 has been a long time coming since the last version of it was discontinued back in 2002. Welcome the new rotary-powered vehicles at Lancaster Mazda when they arrive here within a few years.
