About Japan Real Time.

This stunningly handsome Mazda RX-Vision concept car just revealed at the Tokyo motor show is a clear indication of the company’s intention to put a rotary-powered sports car at the top of its range.

But in 2012, Mazda stopped production of its last rotary-engine car, the RX-8, because the engine’s relative lack of fuel-efficiency meant it would have trouble meeting future environmental regulations. The RX-Vision is slightly longer and wider than Jaguar’s F-TYPE, and a fair bit lower thanks to the rotary engine’s small size, but the production model (which insiders expect to be called RX-7) will probably be smaller than the concept car, and more dimensionally akin to the Porsche Cayman. Lightness is another Mazda target for the car, combined with a power output of around 300bhp and greater torque than has traditionally been possible with this engine design.

Mazda R&D chief Kiyoshi Fujiwara is bullish about the role of rotary at Mazda. “It is an essential part of our DNA and it’s just been passed onto future engineers.
