Something No One Can Find A Reason To Hate — For a 23 year old car this car is amazing, it has handling that is better than most cars made today... which is saying a lot considering its age. If anyone even thinks about questioning the power behind it's engine, just think about how much power normal 1.1l engines have, or go blow the doors off of most 4 cylinders and a good amount of 6 cylinders

Pros: 1.1l rotary engine, holds age incredibly well, incredibly good looking and unique, waxoyl paint makes this car rust proof

Cons: uh... it has a Carburetor?

You'd Never Understand Unless You Have Owned One. — Old, leaks some fluids, not as fast as it once was but still sporty... just like me.

Pros: Rotary

Cons: Gas mileage.

Complety Stock...for Now... — Nothing special--stock. Working on dropping a RB26DETT Nissan engine into it, though.

Pros: Handles pretty well, decent amount of power, high visibility.

Cons: Rotary engine requires more tlc.

1985 Mazda Rx-7 Auto Cross Car — fun car to drive, and there isnt anything like hearing the rotory engin hit 11,000 rps

Pros: corning is amazing, and still in the power band at 10,000 is just crazy

Cons: 1st gear is a bit of a slug, jsut glad its a stick so i can drop the clutch, an automatic would suck

12a Rotory. — Not a bad little car. for only having 105hp it felt spunkier then it should. Handled quite well even with beat up factory shox and springs. This particular one needs better tires and i think it would improve. Dam thing keeps runnign too, only breaks cause owner can afford to fix it.

Pros: revs smooth, handles very well, lightweight

Cons: hard to know when to shift, slow, gas mileage

Small, Awsome Handling, Never Breaks, Poor Gas Mileage — Vintage car looks and performance with Japanese reliability and build quality. Eats through gas like a V8. Not the fastest most powerful car on the road. A blast to drive on twisty roads. Great car for a summers day drive in the country with the windows down and the sunroof removed.

Pros: Great fit and finish, reliable, awsome handling, great seats, neat engine

Cons: Very very poor fuel mileage for size of car, parts are very expensive

I Own My Dream Car...but It Is On Blocks. — I don't recommend this car to anyone. You love it or you don't. Everyone I've ever met who owned this car regrets selling it so I keep holding on!!

Pros: Lot of fun.

Cons: Parts are getting hard to find.

Classic Sports Car — One of the best handling and appealing sports cars ever to be released. From just one drive of the gen 1 rx-7s you will find you will be hooked. Very advanced for there time and can be modified to be very very quick cars.. Nothing in the world can beat the sound of a rotary at high revs...

Pros: Handling, looks, performance, sound

Cons: Not many actually.. reliability may be the only problem as engines require rebuilds
