    Very close, just not quite as handsome, much much less money, quite a bit younger, no English accent, and without the hot women hanging all over me. Otherwise we're the same.

    Well OK I was thinking about this more. It has been said about The Most Interesting Man in the World that his two wrongs make a right.

    Let's take that logic to the Wankel Corvette that never materialized. At first glance, there should be laws against such a car. However, I thought about it a bit more and am coming round... Consider:

    V8 Corvette = Not interesting
    Wankel = Not interesting

    However!... Could it possibly be that

    Corvette + Wankel = Potentially interesting?

    Do the two wrongs have a chance of making a right? I say maybe! I'm quite serious too; I used to think such a car would be dreadful, but now I don't know.

    No matter what Mazda calls it, it's not a rotary. VW could call my engine a Purple People Eater, but that doesn't make it one.

    Here are two links for your reading entertainment.

    So do you talk about the Otto in your car?

    Read the info you posted yourself, it IS a rotary engine. Geez.

    So I've now started asking Have there been significant automobiles fitted with a Wankel?

    My first task was to define "significant." I decided to define that as "automobiles that have been declared COTY" as the COTY is given by a voting body comprising members from a wide variety of countries, making it quite relevant.

    It turns out there are! By my count, 1.5 cars have had a Wankel and were (nonetheless?) voted COTY.

    1. NSU Ro 80. I'm a fan. The body alone was two decades ahead of its time. The Wankel didn't work then of course, and NSU was in a bad way by the time all was said and done. And when all was said and done, there was no more NSU. A shame, I liked NSU in general. The IP went to VAG eventually I think, and it could explain the presence of a Wankel mini-motor in the safety systems used by VAG cars (I think it was originally called Procon Ten or something?).

    2. Citroen GS. Very cool car, very Citroen, knelt like a camel to let the passengers in. This is the ".5" in my "1.5" cars above, since I can't find any proof Citroen produced the Wankel. It may have been stillborn, and it may in fact have contributed to Citroen becoming insolvent at the time.

    Would I own either? Yes, proudly. I can only wish Mazda would take the hint though.

    How about the Norton Commander w/ the Wankel?

    Tough to admit when your ****** is sandy? Cmon, admit it. You posted it on your Wankel forum.

    I have never once failed to get a Wankel fan upset. It always brightens my day.

    And I quote from the Wikipedia Article Titled "Rotary Engine"

    "This article is about a type of piston engine with a rotating cylinder block. For the pistonless Wankel engine, see Wankel engine."
