    Do us all a favor: work on learning how to drive your car before adding more power. Pretty please.

    Thanks....interesting vehicle but you can hear the engine does sound....'muted.' Shame though. I love the sound of the Boxer engine so I know I'd be disappointed by this 'wankel' engine.

    Good lord...they named it a 'wankel' - I could never drive it now!

    I saw the car on Car and Driver TV today. They rated it a perfect 10 in the fun to drive category!

    Let's just say the word 'wankel' has some....interesting connotations over in the UK

    Fantastic engine though.

    Hehe!

    Well, check out the April R&T - they loved the RX-8. Awesome review. I can't wait to drive one. The car just looks like a work of art; it's so unique.

    I think the car has some good points and some bad points. I don't like the look of the front end. Something about it is just not smooth. The rear end however I like. The only problem is it is already on the S2000. I got my Car and Driver in yesterday and there is at least one picture that I thought was an S2000 when I flipped through the pages quickly.

    You're right, it looks a little S2000-ish. I still think the lines are more artistic than the Honda, though. And the interior...whoah! I'm sure the rotary engine will scare off a lot of people, but I think this is one of the most interesting cars to come out in a long time. I wonder if the aftermarket will boom for the RX-8? Mazda would have an animal on its hands if they threw a little turbo action into the mix.

    I think the car will be a success. If they do come out with some mods, yes it will be an incredible car. It already has a great interior, a different design than most (except the rear), and is not too expensive. I dug up a couple pics to see if other agree with my view on the rear of the car. I couldn't find a better picture of the RX8 to prove my point. Some pics it looks identical.

    Mazda RX-8 stats from Automobile magazine:

    Horsepower 250@8500
    Torque 159@5500
    0-60 in 6.2 sec
    1/4 14.8 @ 95 mph
    Top speed 150

    Aside from the looks, the performance seems pretty mediocre for the price. The entry level $25,700 has 210 horsepower with the fully optioned being $33,100 with 250 horsepower. I mean look at the torque for shiit sake!
