Mazda RX9 - When will Mazda launch the next rotary sport car?
The short answer is: nobody knows.
Recent rumours suggest that a hybrid-powered piston-engined coupe with a small rotary range-extender engine might be under consideration, or even a non-rotary-powered piston-hybrid sports car bearing the 'RX-9' badge may be in the pipeline. With Mazda developing inline six-cylinder petrol engines, the latter might be more on the money.
But a low-volume expensive coupe is probably not on Mazda's priorities list, sadly.

How to remove a Mazda RX-8 radio?
Turn the gear knob anti-clockwise, the pop the centre console out using trim removal tools. Remove two Phillips head screws holding the base of the radio trim and ashtray to the centre console support structure. Pull the ashtray and cigarette lighter assembly out. Remove the plastic trim from under the steering column, then remove the two Phillips head screws under the radio trim panel in the centre console, and one bolt tucked up the side of the radio unit which is accessed from the passenger side. The radio then pops out of its clips when lifted from the bottom of the unit..Show more
Heart wants RX8
BUY the RX8. Rotary engines are typically heavier on fuel than a four-cylinder engine, and your V8 comparison is probably correct. They have also been a little heavier on oil than a piston engine, but that's not a problem. The RX8 is a high-performance sports car and needs oils that protect it against hard driving.Show more
