Your right Andrew, hence the title to the thread. :)

I will not ultimately believe it until a vehicle is available for test drive.

I've given up hope and as you have said, until I see something first hand or Mazda themselves make an announcement I wont believe it.

I know I'm only adding to the "hear-say", BUT . .

I've heard from a reliable source that Mazda (Jap) and Mazda (Aus) are getting ready for some rotary themed events in the next coming year or two! Now that could very well be purely for the 50th anniversary, or it could also be to coincide with the release of a new rotary powered car.

Would be nice, but will have to be a niche proposition only - which means low profitability if any.

These days it's all about fuel efficiency and ultimately technology shifts away from ICE - the wankel may be a great range extender for EV but internal combustion is not going to get much better than it is now.

One last high performance wankel would be nice though :)
