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 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Department of Transportation are taking the unusual step of issuing a followup press release urging owners of certain recalled vehicles "to act immediately" to fix their cars and trucks. The problem in question concerns the repair campaigns for rupturing Takata airbag inflators issued in June and covers a long list of models from Toyota, Lexus, Honda, Acura, Mazda, BMW, Nissan, Infiniti, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Oldsmobile and Pontiac. While NHSTA doesn't specifically say why the recall is vital in the new release, Toyota's own explanation in its newly announced renotification campaign earlier today sheds some new light on the topic. According to the Japanese automaker, in testing, Takata found a possible link between the rupturing airbag inflators and high humidity. NHTSA is advocating that all owners pursue repairs immediately if they haven't already done so already. This is especially crucial for those drivers especially in Florida, Puerto Rico, Guam, Saipan, American Samoa, Virgin Islands and Hawaii because of the humid conditions there. We don't need to tell you how dangerous an inadvertent airbag deployment could be - even in a stationary vehicle - but adding to the Takata issue is fears that the deployment could lead to shrapnel being sprayed into the cabin.
The Mazda CX-5 stamped its Kodo design and SkyActiv technology authority all over the Japan Car of the Year awards, taking the top prize ahead of the Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT 86. It is Mazda's second victory in the last ten years, the 2005 MX-5 claiming the same trophy, and the fourth time the Hiroshima company has won. The award is decided by 60 local "automotive experts and journalists," and open to any passenger car released in Japan from November 1, 2011 to October 31, 2012 that has sold more than 500 units. Each judge gets 25 votes, his or her top vote getting 10 points, the rest of the points being spread among the judge's choice for the next best four cars. The second-place getters were the Toyobaru twins with 318 votes, the surprise being they didn't beat or get any closer to the crossover. The Subaru BRZ did claw some mojo back, earning the Special Award given to cars that have made "an exceptional impact." The BMW 3 Series was third overall and won the Import Car of the Year award with plenty of room between it and the second place Range Rover Evoque.
Every few months, it seems a rumor crops up about plans from Mazda to revive the rotary engine. Last November, its CEO said the only way another one could happen is if the project was profitable, and then a month later the automaker showed off the Mazda2 RE Range Extender with a 330cc Wankel engine mounted in the rear. Now, Australian auto site Motoring reports that the PHEV may actually make production in the next-gen Mazda2 sometime after it's initial launch. Martin Benders, managing director of Mazda in Australia, spoke to Motoring about the company's future with hybrids and basically reiterated what the CEO said last year. The Japanese automaker only plans to offer electrified powertrains in places where they can sell in sufficient numbers to be profitable, like Japan. Mazda has been playing with the rotary range-extender idea for years. In the RE prototype, the engine was exclusively used to charge the lithium-ion batteries when they were running low, and a 100-horsepower electric motor provided all of the propulsion. It gave the little hatch an estimated range of about 250 miles. The company reportedly took inspiration from its Skyactiv engines to make the Wankel have lower friction and a lighter weight.
