Well granted there are few details, and the journey to production stage is never guaranteed, and concept cars do not always match what production car models look like. But the RX concept is certainly a start. It is still exciting, although more needs to happens. What is the alternative chaps? Mazda give up entirely on the RX model.

Black beats all
Fellow Rotor fans gather now for our daily prayer.....

As I lay rubber down the street,
I pray for traction I can keep,
But if I spin and start to slide,
Please dear god protect my sweet ride.

Amen

I also noticed that the rev counter has a redline of 8,000rpm, so given that I'd say it will very likely be turbocharged.
