This car is amazing. Great all around car. For everyone out there that talks about lack of torque, buy a big block. This car is like a turbo car. Power is there when you need it; all you have to do is shift (part of the fun). Fuel economy?? This is a sports car! Buy a hybrid if fuel is a major concern. If you want a good "all around" car that seats 4 and is a blast to drive, the RX-8 is it.
Simple. Hope Mazda reads this. Make a 3 or 4 rotor standard on all cars. Fuel saving feature; run on one rotor for light driving, 2nd rotor "kicks in" for modest acceleration and, all 3 or 4 fire for that "need to pass". It is the same concept of turning off 3-4 pistons on a v6 or v8.
