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.
