Originally posted by zoom44 thanks Grimmy now i see. it seems that one is wearing a bra. so it could be the one from the spy pics with the 16" wheels. what do you think the black car is right in front of the silver on?
That's the Miata, I believe.

The car that we see before we see the rx-8 is most definatley a Mazda Miata, no question. On the other side of the 8 is a black car, with a taller stance than the 8. My guess is that the black car is a new Mazda 6 sedan. By brittening the image, the colors are easier to differenciate. This makes the full shape of the tailight visible, which is comparible to the u.s. spec. mazda 6. Look at the below photo comparison:
Also, by using certain photoshop techniques, We can clear and lighten up the braw covering the rx-8 front grill. In all the pictures of this thread, the braw has been to dark to determine much about the rx-8's front structure. By desaturating certain values in the pictures, I have made it easier to tell what the lower front bumper will look like. The openings on either side of the grill are much wider, and it apears that they are lower than the grille itself, making them seem to be like the drawing from sevenstock5. Also, there is a small lip or ledge thing underneath the grill, possibly holding the signature rotary shaped intake. Take a look at the picture:
Here's my photoshop of how I really want my RX-8 to be. I did one like this a while ago, but, I don't know how possible it will be. I would love a metallic charcoal color, but it doesn't look promising. I guess Black or Titianium would suffice. Since my brother is seriously considerind an RX-8 also, maybe I can convince him to get a yellow one and we can swap side view mirror panels somehow. That along with yellow trimmed interior would be pretty cool IMO.
