Fun, And Nasty. — The car has amazing handling, stopping, and acceleration. the only problems are lack of space and not the best on gas. Will definitely drift for you when you want, and will get out of its own way. All in all, fantastic car

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun car. LOTS of power for the little 1.1L.

Cons: No back seats

Ultimately Forgettable Car — At the time I was attending college, and this was the sportiest car I could afford. It was complete, however the engine was kaput. Sooo, the garage that sold me the car was able to track down and install another 13A (carbureted) engine. It was always a real bear to try to start, particularly when the engine was cold. Choke or no choke, it always just seemed to crank and crank before it caught. The car had a sporty look, but the average minivan could easily blow its doors off, even with the 5 speed transmission. I owned the car for less than a year, and was happy to see it go...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Liked the aluminum wheels,  sunroof.

Cons: Tiny cabin,  tiny back seats,  body rusted easily,  hard on gas,  hard to start when cold.  Cloth brown interior and tan exterior....what was I thinking?!

Best Ever — the performance all together on this car is great still with the stock 13b rotory motor it rips in a stright line and in the corners it can only get better the only time i ever herd the tires chirp on this car is when my dad was getting off the highway and he didnt realize it was a sharp exit the braking is just as anyother carit is build great accept the transmission...rebuilt 3 times...and we are having a problem with the rear axel we think it is just a berring but there is a sqeeling coming from the back we have the alll leather inteirior its great it hugs you in the corners, the gas milage isnt great but its not an every day car THE BEST CAR IVE EVER BEEN IN

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Excellent. This Will Be A Car I Hand Down To Future Generations. — It's rotary first of all. 1.1L engine putting out 100HP on a car that weighs 2200 lbs. It has tons of room for upgrades and a bigger rotary. This car is insanely fun to drive, especially because of how it tries to drift on straightaways (with no power steering!).

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Lightweight fun car with room for improvement!

Cons: Parts can be a pain because it's so old.

Fun Sporty Car That Turns Heads Every Time! — I like being diferent and the RX7 lets me do that with its rotary engine. But it does have some drawbacks, it guzzles gas, its old so parts are breaking, cops love to follow me =). Handles smooth, responsive throttle, and its a wankel!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It is a fun car that you will never want to get out!

Cons: It guzzles gas like a V8

Looks Great And Has A Fun Personality. — So what if my car's slow and has squeaky breaks? That just comes with having a 25 year old car. It's an absolute joy to drive, especially during those winter mornings where sometimes I just don't know if it'll start.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Rotary engines sound amazing.

Cons: Mine's the automatic, you need a manual transmission.

It's A Great Car If You Love Them Or Have A Friend That Can Help. — it's perfectly balanced and high strung ... It's a Wankel Engine, as long as you keep it lubed it will stay running. Don't baby the motor and she will continue running for a very very long time. I still love mine.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It handles like a dream.

Cons: You need to learn a little about Rotory Engines
