For all of you RX-7 fans, it is our pleasure to offer this pristine second to last year of the first generation RX-7 for your consideration.
The Persimmon Red Metallic Clearcoat (R7) looks almost as nice as the day it rolled off the showroom floor, and the gray cloth interior is in exceptional condition.
This is the GSL model, so it is loaded with options, including air conditioning (ice cold), cruise control, power windows, and sunroof (both glass and metal).
The 1.2 liter rotary engine (12A) runs perfectly and the 5 speed manual transmission is tight and the clutch is strong. It rides on a nearly perfect set of original alloy wheels with an excellent set of matched tires. It starts right up, idles smooth, accelerates as it should, has no vibrations at any speed, tracks and stops straight and true. It is a true joy to drive!
The CarFax report shows no accidents and just two previous owners. Tucked in the glove compartment is the original owner's manual and some paperwork/receipts from the original owner. This RX-7 has less than 72,000 original miles!
It is a rust free car. There are several (approximately 8) small dings on the hood, some (approximately 5) on the roof, and approximately 6-10 dings on each side, but none have paint damage and should be able to be smoothed out with paintless dent repair. It is believed the car has been repainted at some point in the original color, but if so, it was done exceptionally well, as there is no overspray, orange peel, runs or other noticeable imperfections.
Inside, the radio station selection button is missing, the driver's side OEM floor mat is torn, and the rear carpet is faded (replacement cover shown in photos). Other than that it is in amazing condition inside. Everything works and has no signs of ever being smoked in - it is clean and has no offensive odors.
As a recap:
Mechanicals: No issues - Motor, Transmission, Clutch, Brakes, and Exhaust all excellent.
Exterior: No rust; minor dings; minor stone chips, no broken lights; all lights work.
Interior: No odors, very clean, everything works, minor imperfections.
Other: I won't say this is the nicest RX-7 out there, but I can assure you this is an incredibly nice car, and far and away the nicest one I have ever seen. I get lots of comments and accolades, especially from the RX-7 aficionados. This really is the one you don't want to let get away...

The Mazda MX-5 Miata was named to Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for the eighth year in a row and for the fourteenth time overall. The CX-5 tops or comes in as runner-up on every AOL Autos staff poll we take on compact crossovers. The Mazda3 is a perennial favorite among auto critics. That's three clear, unquestioned winners in the Mazda showroom. So, why does Mazda seem to struggle sometimes for recognition and clarity in the marketplace? For that, I chatted with Mazda North American Operations President, Jim O'Sullivan, who has run the outfit since 2003. O'Sullivan, a former Ford sales and marketing executive who came to Mazda from Dearborn, MI when Ford owned a controlling stake in Mazda, is one of the quieter, but very menchy, leaders in the industry whose longevity in the job speaks to the stability of Mazda.
Japan's larger automakers - companies like Toyota, Honda and Nissan - have tremendous engineering talent at their disposal. That's largely because, selling as many cars as they do, they've got more revenues to tap into. Logic might dictate, then, that smaller automakers like Mazda, which no longer has the deep pockets afforded to it by its former partnership with Ford, might have less of a budget and workforce for engineering. But Mazda has been raking in record profits, and it plans on cashing those revenues in by hiring a substantial new pool of engineers. According to Automotive News, Mazda is preparing to hire as many as 185 new engineers over the next two years - almost four times as many as the 50 engineers it previously targeted. Many of those engineers will be put to work developing the second-generation, Skyactiv 2 technologies that are on the drawing board while the first round of Skyactiv features are still being rolled out. The boost in recruitment is enabled by a positive fiscal year that ended last March, marking the first profits Mazda had logged in four years. Sources anticipate that the fiscal year culminating at the end of this month will mark the company's most profitable yet, netting over a billion dollars to eclipse the fiscal year that ended in 2008 when it recorded $872.5 million in profits.
The recently appointed CEO of Mazda is apparently quite the optimist, claiming that the Japanese brand, renowned for its Zoom-Zoom driving character (and more recently its sleek, refined designs and Skyactiv efficiency), is claiming the company will record its best-ever US sales within the next two years. According to a report from Automotive News, Masamichi Kogai expects Mazda to move 400,000 of its Kodo-styled vehicles in the increasingly competitive US market by March 2016, with the recently launched Mazda3 leading the charge. "It will impacted considerably by the trend of the U.S. industry. But... it's my hope we achieve the record by that time," Kogai tells AN. The brand is currently targeting 300,000 units by the end of this fiscal year in March 2014. Given that production and sales of the Mazda3 (and consumer awareness of the 2014 Mazda6) is still picking up steam, it isn't a stretch to imagine Mazda, which sold 240,000 vehicles from January to October of 2013, hitting its target. Along with the overall increase in sales numbers, Kogai is expecting the independent brand to take an even larger slice of the US sales pie, claiming 2.5 percent US market share, improving from its current 1.9-percent foothold so far in 2013. "I think the upper limit may be 2.5 percent for the time being," Kogai told AN, before pointing out, "We don't want to use a lot of incentives. That is not the sales approach we aspire toward."
