    • Rotary/Wankel engine coming back? Mazda teases new Rotary engine

      Not a lot of info to go on here other than an odd teaser from Mazda. We will know more in six days when whatever they are teasing gets revealed but quite a bit of time passed by since a Mazda was available with a Wankel based engine design especially in the USA (the RX8).


      A new Mazda Cosmo is not likely. Some are speculating the engine will be a generator for hybrid designs.

      A new RX sports car with a turbocharged rotary motor would be what enthusiasts are hoping for but the business case for that likely does not exist.

      We will know in six days.

        Great power and RPM's but the only problem is the seals wearing out so quick and frequent rebuilds needed!

        Rebuild every 100k miles? What do you think?
