The legendary rotary-powered Mazda RX-7s earned a place in the hearts of enthusiasts and plenty of room in the history books, and they deserve a comeback tour.
Mazda's RX-7 has been blowing minds (and apex seals) since the late 1970s.
Mazda hasn't produced a rotary-powered car since 2012, when it discontinued the RX-8.
There's just something about the otherworldly smoothness of the engine, paired with the wild and buzzy exhaust that gets its hooks in you.
The three generations of RX-7 are very different from one another, but they all share a similar feel and motivation.
The third-generation car was a 300-horsepower, twin-turbo sports coupe that still looks modern today.
The first-generation car was tiny and wedge-shaped and offered outsize performance for its little footprint.
The second-generation RX-7 was so clearly a child of the 1980s that its owners manual should have come in a Caboodle with a pair of rotor-print leg warmers.
