Just finished perusing the Car and Driver Web sight and saw a potential offering from Mazda, called the 6 MPS. 280hp turbocharged 4 banger, all-wheel drive, 18 in. rims, and a body that is totally orgasmic. I love it, but do you think Mazda will produce such a car, knowing that the RX-8 needs to be a success in every way possible? I think that the 6 MPS might eat some of the 8' sales. I mean, I know I would definitely look at it if choice came between it and RX-8 what about you?

The little Wankle came, it saw, it conquered, and it peed on pistons
While both the RX-8 and Mazdaspeed 6 will be practical performance machines, they go about it in very different ways and I think there is enough product differentiation for both models to survive in the market. For me, the RX-8 is the clear choice because it's rear wheel drive with a lowish polar moment. I have little interest in AWD sedans, even though I respect their abilities.
