    Worlds Least Expensive Exotic. — with the exception of the price tag and the cost to fix it when I broke it this was by far the most exciting toy I ever owned. It is truly the cheapest exotic in the world. This car is a dream especialy if you like to modify cars, there is no end to the engine and body mods you can buy or build. THIS IS NOT A CAR FOR NEW DRIVERS!!!, even in its most mellow configuration this car can and will eat almost anything. There are a few times I scared myself with mine. Laugh, Love, Drift!!!

    Pros: Just about everything about this car is perfect for me.

    Cons: THIS IS NOT A CAR FOR A NEW DRIVER! The down side is the rising cost of fule and Mods are not always cheep either.

    Fd3s — I love this car very much. As long as you take care of your rotary engine and feed it the right kind of oils it runs awesome.

    Pros: Faster then alot of cars 2 to 3 times the price range.  TURBO, HIGH REVING, Great handling.  

    Cons: Nothing I can really think of if you love true sports cars.

    Thrilling! — Not for the weak hearted. Must be able to DIY maintenance and modifications. Will be hard pressed to find a local mechanic who understands this engine.

    Pros: Smooth lines, powerful engine

    Cons: Sophisticated

    Fun Car — The RX7 FB style is classic Mazda. So far ahead of its time when produced. The rotary engine un-modified is a very reliable engine and a blast to drive because of its high reving nature. This engine has a garret 40 turbo boosting 17 psi on race fuel which is pushing the limits of the apex seals. This set up produces 495hp to the wheels which is more than enough. I have a love hate relationship with this car because it keeps breaking. Really fun until that happens.

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

    Pros: FB RX7's are hard to find in good condition today.  They will always be sought after.  If you get tired of fixing the rotary you always have the option of dropping an LS motor in it

    Cons: Very few qualified Rotary engine builders and tuners.

    Angry Little Mazda — This is a low mileage FD body style Rx7 that has been built from the ground up for track racing. The stock versions are great reliable cars. This engine has been modified to accept 22 pound of boost from a garret 40 turbo. At this pressure you must run 115 octane race fuel or risk loosing your apex seals to predestination. The rotary engines have great power to weight numbers and red line at 8500 rpm. They do not have much low in torque but make big horsepower once they spin up a bit. There are lots of aftermarket aerodynamic kits and carbon fiber products and this car has several incorporated into its body and powertrain.

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

    Pros: An RX7 13 B rotary FD body style making 495hp

    Cons: Rotary engines pushed to this horse power break a lot. It is hard to find good mechanics and tuners for Rotary engines.  Rotary engines are not fuel efficient.

    I owned one just before buying the IS300, definitely a step down in power and handling but I could only fit 2 people in that car.
