    As far as I have heard there are no immediate plans to bring it to the states. It may not ever go into production. If it does I may be trading in my car though

    Actually the plans had been dropped and now it looks like it might happen, and The RX-8s are already in the states.

    Seems like they would establish the RX-7 before introducing the Mazda Speed RX-8. I guess time will tell.

    The mazda 6s is not underpowered. It's just heavy as hell. If it sheds about 200 lbs. It's alright.

    I don't even know the weight of the car, but do you really think that 200 lbs will make any difference?

    I just picked up a 6s 5 speed manual.

    They hit 60 in the mid 6 second range.

    I wouldn't call that underpowered whatsoever for a stock sedan.

    Handles better than my RSX ever did too.

    The automatic reeeeallllly drags the car down though. Excessive lag, constant 'hunting', it just sucks.

    well the v6 accord weights around 3200 lbs with 240(20 more than the 6) so it shouldn't be too sluggish.

    The 6 is a VERY nice looking car (body kit not needed). But it does need to step up in the power department. BTW it also made "Car & Drivers best 10" in its first year in production. Mazdas doing something right!?
