1995 Mazda RX-7 Turbo 2dr Coupe


Review

This is my third generation of RX7. The twin turbo rotary engine puts it in it's own class along with the handling. This model won the 24 hour LeMans in Europe. The improved handling over the other models is phenomenal! It is much more stable in weather than other performance cars. One of the previous writers said it all with the feeling of being in a jet cockpit It is a thrill to drive but make no mistake it was built for racing not creature comfort and it performs. This RX7 draws stares where ever it goes for its exterior styling alone and nothing compares to the feeling of driving this great machine. I don't look in awe or longing at any other cars anymore!


Best Features

My favorite features are the seats, the feeling of the cockpit and the speed! Blow everybody away and look good doing it. The pop up headlights have always given me a thrill. What more could you ask for in a performance car?


Worst Features

Door handles were not designed great and have a tendency to break if not handled carefully. The heat off the engine to the cockpit can get uncomfortable in extremely hot weather.

Review

I have had two RX7s now and they are the car so many expensive exotics and alike aspire to be. 0-60 in 4.9 seconds is supercar territory, not to mention one of the greatest chassis' ever made and what a great sounding engine! This is a dream car for anyone but at prices to be afforded by all. Love it and it will love you 100 fold.


Best Features

Seating position, looks, engine and driveability!


Worst Features

Interior build quality.

Review

The car will return in fun tenfold the respect you give it. It is fast and will break loose even the best tires off the line. Needless to say it is not smart to push it in the rain and forget it in snow. Great second car for three season fun. Check the oil every 1k miles, it is designed to burn it. This accounts for a small amount of smoke on start up and one reason they stopped shipping them to the states. Timeless good looks, tire eating power and limited prodution will make this a collector's item.


Best Features

At ten years old everyone loves the body. The interior layout is perfect for my 5'10 frame. Everything right where it should be.


Worst Features

Turbo lag so be prepared. Know what your asking for and be ready to deal with the power. It comes on hard and fast. This isn't a Honda 4 banger - there is required care and it is not always cheap. Don't let a dealership touch it - find a real rotary shop.

Review

You feel like you are strapped into the cockpit of a jet fighter when you sit in the car. And driving it produces the same feeling. It has amazingly quick reflexes and a smooth rush of power. Despite its reputation, my car has been amazingly reliable with not one bit of trouble. The key is to be careful with modifications. Overdoing it can quickly produce a blown engine. There are few sportscars that are as pure as the 3rd generation RX-7. Today, perhaps only the Lotus Elise rivals it. Some advice for prospective owners: Adhere strictly to the maintenance schedule. Seat leather and sheet metal are thin. Park away from other cars and condition leather frequently or replace.


Best Features

Power, handling, and style.
