    Whaaaa....the new Accord coupes are at least mid 14 second cars...The new RX-8 are supposedly very quick track cars.

    My guess is that he knew he didn't stand a chance from a dig. He was probably waiting in gear until he hit he sweet spot and could get the jump on you. It was his only chance.

    Nice kill

    Yeah, reason to get an RX-8 is for looks+handling. I think of it as just another sporty sedan... Thinking of it that way, it's a good one.

    actually now that i look at it, the front end is a little different than the 8, but its not as radical as above

    That might look good! Not sure about the "smiley-face" grill, though...

They had to make something as solid and sound as possible to get the rotary to catch back on. I think they are playing it very smart and I'm glad to see they are selling. This is a great start. Bring on the 3-4 rotors now
    At sevenstock there was an RX8 with a 20b(three rotor-twinturbo) the car looked sweet and also fast.
