Seems they are going to try.

They may just trip on their shoelaces by insisting on developing a regular-use gas engine, but the idea of using the rotary as a Volt-style charger engine or using alternate fuels is interesting.

People smoke surrounded by nitrogen all the time.

I guess that's the joke.

The condensation clouds around that are impressive and larger than anything we see when the trucks recharge our liquid nitrogen towers here. Then again, that's mostly related to relative humidity and its usually pretty dry around LA.

Pure sexy.
A shame the wankel never worked out. I got to drive some rotery Mazdas in the 70's and they were fast as fiddlesticks, even the lowly rs3 was fast and you have not lived till you drive an engine with a 14,000 rpm redline.
Not even duct tape will fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound.

No, it's not wrong. She looks cute there. I bet she can look sexy/pervy if she wants to.

She is clearly trying to avoid laughing also.
Yeah, that falls in the cute category.

Inexplicably self-referential sticker that is required on all food and beverage vending machines in Florida:

Image


Apparently there is a Florida law that requires that all such vending machines must be registered with the state in part by paying some fee, and with that the vending machine maker gets one of these stickers to slap on that machine.

Of course any vending machine that is non-compliant with this Florida law will not have such a sticker, so...huh?

Mebbe a replacement for the RX-7?!

My father had a last-gen RX-7. It was soooooo much fun.

Along with the pretty new car, Mazda said there was a new Wankel to go with it. No details though.

Almost 10 years ago they announced a new Wankel engine, the 16X, which for the first time since the 1970s had a different (larger) rotor diameter. That would've given it more "stroke" and presumably torque. Last I heard about that was they were still having trouble meeting emissions (surprise).

In keeping with the thread, as of last week, my Mazda is now blue:
