If you're looking at this listing, you probably already know all about the legendary RX-8's lightweight chassis, nimble and responsive handling, suicide doors with 2+2 seating, and of course the amazing 212hp Renesis rotary motor with an astronomical 9000rpm redline. There are very few sportscars that can legitimately compete with the RX-8's incredible handling dynamics. Only the S2000, Miata (albeit with far less power), and the new FR-S/BRZ.

We have too many cars and no longer have room for all of them, so sadly a couple of them have to go. I can't stress enough how much this is basically a new car due to the immaculate condition and insanely low miles. It comes in the rare eye-catching Phantom Blue Mica color that shifts with light/angles. You really have to see it in person to fully appreciate it. Throw in the GT package with every option available and the 6speed manual, and you have yourself a very hard-to-find Mazda RX-8.

Note: You want the 2006+ models as the previous years had overstated hp and reliability issues. That was all fixed by 2006.


Condition:
-18,500 miles
-Clean Title
-Owned by an Adult Female Enthusiast

-Never driven in the rain on purpose, never touched snow, never tracked, never abused
-Started up and driven regularly with regular oil changes regardless of miles driven
-1 wheel has very light curb rash on that you can't even see until really up close. Barely visible so not worth worrying about.
-Right rear fender has 2 tiny door dings which could probably be repaired by one of those mobile dentless repair guys. It's so small I couldn't even get a clear pic on camera
-Still has new car smell. No signs of wear on leather, steering wheel, etc... Everything works perfectly
-Spare tire has never been used

Mods:
-Mazdaspeed aluminum fender strakes ($275)

-Even includes the owner's manual


Asking just $16,988 which is a killer price for this particular car. It's almost impossible to find such a low mileage, well cared for, bone stock, adult owned car in such great condition. Car is paid off, meaning title in hand, ready to be signed over to you. No trades and no lowballs please. We're really hoping to sell this to another enthusiast that will take care of it an enjoy it as much as she did.

Watch a high-speed chase from a motorcycle-mounted officer's point of view

Sat, 13 Apr 2013 19:00:00 EST

Riding a motorcycle through high traffic can be a stressful experience. And we don't even want to imagine what it's like to have to actually pursue someone on a motorcycle. Fortunately, we don't have to. Officer Troy Gurley of the Florence, Alabama police force recently attempted to stop a vehicle for traffic violations. The driver, 24-year-old Justin Sanders, figured he could use his Mazda3 to outrun the bike cop. Turns out, not so much.
Gurley pursued Sanders for nearly five minutes as the Mazda driver ran stop signs, swerved through traffic and raced through residential neighborhoods, but the perpetrator couldn't shake the tenacious and experienced rider. Other units soon joined the pursuit, and Sanders thought it best to leave the protection of his car to attempt to flee on foot. From there, it didn't take officers long to apprehend him. You can watch the video below for yourself.

Mazda CEO closes door on talk of RX sports car revival

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 18:30:00 EST

Some rumors in the auto industry simply refuse to die. Over the last decade, a few of the strongest have focused on Japan. A few years ago, we could have explained away the constant whispering over a new Toyota Supra, Acura NSX or Mazda RX-7 as nostalgia for Japan's golden era of performance. Today, though is different.
We already have the Nissan GT-R, and, thanks to the Toyota FT-1 Concept, a Supra successor finally appears to be on the way. Acura will someday, allegedly, deliver on its promise to put the NSX on sale. So where does that leave the third member of the Japanese performance trio mentioned above? Well, um, it still isn't happening.
"We don't have that kind of vehicle in our future product plan," Mazda CEO Masamichi Kogai told Automotive News when asked about a successor to the rotary-powered RX line. "If you increase the number of segments, then the resources we can allocate to each will decline and that will prevent us from developing truly good products."

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata to be revealed on September 3 [w/video]

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 08:59:00 EST

Now in its 25th year and on the market in its current form since 2005, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has been due for replacement for some time now. A mid-life facelift helped things along some in 2008, but the moment that roadster enthusiasts have been anxiously awaiting is almost upon us.
Mazda has now confirmed that the 2016 MX-5 will be officially unveiled on September 3 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca just ahead of the "Miatas at Mazda Raceway" event, where the Japanese automaker will also display "an array of heritage, concept and motorsports MX-5s," just as it did alongside the upcoming new roadster's Skyactiv chassis at the New York Auto Show.
Not to leave the European and Asian markets out of the fun, Mazda will simultaneously unveil the new Miata in Spain and Japan as well. But in the meantime you can view the teaser video and press release below to keep that excitement drummed up.
