cutters mazda salesman in hawaii told me 2006 will be twinturbo. i hope he is right. but dealers allways full of of chit.
those foo's at cutter also told me of the 2k4 "special edition RX8 turbo" will be out summer 2k4....did they have the 05' models yet? JN says it will be awhile before they get their shipment. aloha....
If at Turbo RX-8 will use more gas than the current model there is no point in them even thinking about taking this motor any further. Frankly it's sick how much gas this motor uses to generate only 238hp.
Mind you.... the car would be an absolute animal with 300 ponies.
Yes a FI RX-8 would use more gas, but when buying the car most of us knew we were in for subpar gas mileage, either as former/current owners of other rotarys, or through word of mouth. So I say bring on the FI, we know what we're getting into.
As far as a twin turbo, I can't imagine that happening over a single, should they decide to use turbo's at all.
SPEED Editor Sam Mitani gains exclusive access to Mazda's super-secret RX-8. With its specially-designed Mazdaspeed suspension improvements (shocks and springs, anti-roll bars) and supercharged rotary, this is one mean sports car, lapping Willow Springs faster than a Porsche Boxster S or the Nissan 350Z."
