1994 Mazda RX-7 Coupe Turbo 2dr Coupe


Review

This car was the bomb. Great handleing,
great performance, beautiful to look at.
I found this beauty at a little local
dealer and $9000 later drove off with
the most powerful car I have ever owned.
215hp and suspension that allowed me
to take it around corners over 60 like
they weren't even there. Traded it for
99 Saab 93 SE convertable for my wife
nine months later. Made $3000. Still
kicking myself for that one....


Best Features

looks, comfort vs. size, speed. twin turbos. handleing.


Worst Features

tranny was automatic. this could have used some tweeking, was a little sluggish from the stop light.

Review

I love this car!
Performance: Not reliable my eye.
Almost 4 years of daily driving/racing
without skipping a beat. Just do all
maintenance and you're set.
Styling: 10 yr old car that still turn
heads.


Best Features

Twin Turbos


Worst Features

none

Review

Performance has its price. This car is
all about performance. It is not for
the faint of heart nor thin of wallet.
Expect to pay for the performance.
Unfortunately, most original owners
were unaware of this aspect of
ownership. However with proper
research and the availibility of a
good,local aftermarket tuner, the the
3rd Gen RX7 will take your breath away!


Best Features

Fantastic acceleration, well balanced, very high horsepower to weight ratio. It looks sleek and seductive; always invites looks and comments.


Worst Features

Out of production, so a moot point. However, aftermarket support is extensive almost cult-like.

Review

The 3rd generation Mazda's RX7
rightfully won Motor Trend's Car of the
year award when it was first released
10 years ago. Its combination of
acceleration, handling and styling made
it the best sports car to ever come
from Japan and better than many cars
that cost twice or even three times as
much, including Porsche. This car is a
true sports car not just a sporty car
and it sacrifices many comforts for
performance.


Best Features

Rotary engine is light, compact and revs to the limit in a very smooth and predictable manner. Handling is phenomenal. Braking is excellent. Good leg room.


Worst Features

Devoid of any cargo space. Harsh ride. Consumes premium fuel at an alarming rate.

Review

I bought this car because of its
reputation. Since buying it, I've done
numerous things to it to improve
reliability and performance, and every
minute has been a blast. This car
still gets lots of looks, and can
outperform many faaaaar more expensive
cars.


Best Features

big horsepower, RWD, huge community and availability of modifications/parts.


Worst Features

Needs a boost gauge from the factory. Better quality factory parts...intercooler, radiator, etc. Many parts are not sufficient for hard driving. Standard dual oil coolers. More exotic materials :)
