    If You Have Money To Spend This Is Worth It — The quality of the car is not the best but not the worst either. The performance was decent enough to drift. The cost is what kills everything its all adds up.But i do got to say is the car is very fun to drive

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

    Pros: Its fun to drift

    Cons: Its a money pit

    This Car Is The Best Bang For Your Buck If Your Looking For Great Looks And Good Performance. — this car was made in 1988 and has a 1.3 liter rotary engine which has no cylinders like a regular car. 1.3 liters that make 155 break horsepower which is over 100 horsepower per liter! which is unheard of in regular commuter cars that cost less than 50,000$ great car but hard to take care of.

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

    Pros: It was given to me and its amazing

    Cons: real wheel drive in colorado = walking in snow storms

    One Awesome Toy — TII is great! You can have it stock and gives you a thrill. If you're into performance this is your ride! I don't really recommend this car for ppl that are clueless as to mechanical aspect due to high dealer repair cost. I know some ppl drive the car on a daily basis, I personally don't. If you love a true sports car that are relatively reasonable this is it!

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

    Pros: Fast, sexy and rare

    Cons: expensive to repair if you don't do it yourself

    Mazda Rx-7 Turbo 1988 Model — Great 0-60 and could hug the road like crazy. The rotary engine sounded like a turbine jet engine and could run at 8000 rpm all day long. I had the turbo model and it was my most fun car ever.

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

    Pros: Fast and fun to drive

    Cons: Replacing the turbo

    A Mechanics Dream — The rotary community is not one set in it's ways of how things are done. everything you do or add to and RX7 helps progress the community. a sense of accomplishment by just by letting the car do what it wants. feels free to bag on this car, the harder you drive it the more this car can do.

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

    Pros: handling and letting the RPM's climb

    Cons: expensive

    Awesome — I LOVE IT! It's fast, agile, light, well-made, and just awesome to drive. It's my baby, and she may be a little banged up but I think she still looks great too. I wouldn't drive anything else. It's just amazing.

    Pros: fun as hell

    Cons: low gas mileage, poor snow performance
