1994 Mazda RX7: Car of the Day by Carchasers
The third-generation Mazda RX7, known as the “FD” chassis to enthusiasts, is easily one of the most beautifully styled cars to ever have come from Japan. Small, lightweight, powerful, and easily modified, the RX7 is only held back by the engine that defines it. The Wankel engine has been problematic, especially when tuned, and very few rotary-engined cars are still running untouched engines.
This one is no different, as a Mazda crate motor was installed. A few modifications have been made for power, but there is little sign of it from the outside. The silver paint is gorgeous – though the front bumper might be discolored, or it could be just a poor photo angle.
One thing with rotaries – they NEED to be used, and used well, else the already-fragile engine’s life is shortened. Every drive needs to hit the redline buzzer at least once. It’s worth it.
It’s on eBay in Western Massachusetts for $28k or offer.
