Was Going To Be My Racecar — That blow'd up real good! Was my daily for a while, blew the original turbo 13bt engine w/ 130k miles and then moved and started prepping it for my racecar fantasy. It can be quick and fun, but not worn out and stock.

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

Pros: turbo rotary plus sexy blister fenders

Cons: turbo rotary

Fun While It Lasts — Only had it about a year, and never got to drive it. Had bad apex seals when I got it. I pulled the engine, but never got around to taking it apart. The shell is in the junkyard now, but the engine is still in the garage at home :)

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

Pros: Can be fast - rotary engines rock!

Cons: Not a long lasting car

Zoom-zoom — Sporty coupe sports car with a Rotary Powered 1300cc Engine. Turbo charged and intercooled for added fun. Drove away from the dealership with 189bhp. Amazing handling and drive ability. This is an amazing and unique car that has made its place in history.

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

Pros: The car itself.  

Cons: Fuel mileage

Keep Up With The Maintenance And You Have A Car That Will Last Forever. — No Cup holders are just about the only letdown. This car is over 20 years old and therefor needs attention like one. With diligent maintenance these cares will last a long time. There are only three moving internals in these engines. No valves, cams, springs ect. Finding people that understand how to work on these engines is vary rare so if you are not mechanically inclined you will want to avoid these cars altogether

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

Pros: Abundance ofPersonality

Cons: Engine of small Aircraft, Maintenance of small Aircraft

Wouldn't Trade It For The World. — No one builds a car that handles like an RX7....no one but Mazda that is. Braking , cornering and manuverability are all tops in this perfectly balanced sports car. Cheaper than the thrid gen FD and mor reliable than the first gen, the FC is just right for me.

Pros: Corners are destroyed by it.

Cons: Better be ready to do your own maintainance

This Car Is A Toy For People To Tool Around On, It Is Not A Serious Car. — The car is balanced in so many ways that it makes it difficult to love or hate so you end up doing both. Engine Rebuild kits cost way too much. Fun factor is about as high as you can get for a car of its price range and it preforms very well when running. The cost of ownership is way too high to justify owning this car.

Pros: It is one of the most balanced cars ever made.

Cons: Cost of ownership is too high, engine rebuild kits cost too much and expect to foul out a ton of spark plugs

1987 Mazda Rx-7 Turbo2 — The RX7 is a true sports car of its era. Definitely a fun car for spirited drivers. Very high potential vehicle when upgraded, the FC3S can become a serious machine. But be prepared, you must have RX7 money to own an RX7. Classic looks, feel, and dynamics. And you can't forget the legendary rotory engine. I love old school.

Pros: Solid chassis, predictable handeling, great braking, high-revving rotary, and it looks FN awesome!

Cons: Old school dynamics, cooling, burns plugs/oil, Damn rotory motor!
