No Rotary Mazda cars in the near future

There was a lot of chatter last year about a new RX7 (redesigned) from the Mazda folks. This car would feature a redesigned 13B Rotary engine with better fuel economy, lighter and producing around 300hp naturally aspirated. The latest however is that we are not likely to see any new Rotary automobile from Mazda in the U.S., at least for some time to come. We enthusiasts are really disappointed with the news….can you imagine putting a Turbo on one of those? Looking at the bright side of things however, I see Rotaries out there going up in value due to the fact that they are no longer coming into the country and there are still good deals on used Rotary Engine Mazdas.
