not sure if it was true or not... but weren't they working on a new forced induction rotary which would be like the new rx7?

I haven't heard anything about that, I think the 16x was mostly for fuel economy and tq. But they do need to build a damn proper sports car with a turbo or a NA 3-rotor, no more of this suicide door no power bullshit.

Ive always been intrigued by rotaries, sad to see em go.

On a happier note, for a brief second, I thought you blew your motor Matt, glad the thread wasnt about that
