The Mazda RX-8 redefined the sports car segment when it was launched in summer 2003, and it continues to shake up the automotive world’s definition of what a sports car can be. With an exterior suggesting athletic tension, a unique twin-rotor RENESIS rotary engine and an interior offering comfort and practicality, the 2007 Mazda RX-8 continues to be a cutting-edge sports car, as well as the only mass-produced rotary-powered car in the world.
RX-8’s unique, athletically sculpted styling features freestyle doors and enough passenger room for four full-size adults. For 2006, six-speed Sport A/T automatic transmission-equipped cars received a power boost to 212-hp through the use of a similar six-port intake system as used on manual transmission-equipped cars. The 238-hp 6MT cars come with standard 18-inch wheels. Both vehicles are fitted with power windows, mirrors and door locks, cruise control and a six-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system. For 2007, RX-8 adds minor enhancements including two new colors.
Enhancements for the 2007 RX-8 include:
6-disc CD changer is now standard on Touring and Grand Touring models
Sand leather-trimmed seats available on the Grand Touring model
New exterior colors – Crystal White Pearl and Stormy Blue Mica

i have a white water pearl and i wonder how much of a difference is the new crystal white pearl? i think the sand interior will look really nice with the 8. but then i cant believe they still didnt do any engine improvements.... but anyways im thinking about changing my interior to something like beige or sand.
Well, I have put 50,000 smiles on my 8, no complaints here! I think this is an incredible car, and it amazes me to hear so many complaints. Get off the internet, go find a curvy road, and re-introduce yourself to the reason you bought an 8!
Seriously though, I'm glad there's no changes. One of the things I always liked about Miatas (and VW Beetles when I was a kid) was how they hardly changed from year to year—a '90 Miata looked as up-to-date as a '96. Whenever you see your car, you don't feel like it's getting old because it looks exactly like a new one.
I think the problem is Mazda is secretive and you wont know anything until its actually released.
I agree with this 100%. I don't like the idea that I could buy an RX-8 today and literally 2 weeks from now a MS8 could come out. That just doesn't happen with other car companies. With the Evo, for example, you have a decent idea of what that car will look like for the next 2 years or so.
This is good news, my car is still up-to-date. As long as the Mazdaspeed 8 doesn't show up, I'm still good. I don't want to be the "oh, there's a Mazdaspeed wannabe" guy on the road. Everyone's gonna start calling me a ricer with my MS body kit.
