Nicknamed “The Japanese Porsche 924”, the second generation of the RX7 came on the market in 1987 and received constant upgrades until the car’s retirement in 1995.
Mazda had a long reputation and experience with rotary engines and decided to use it on the second generation of the RX7. When Akio Uchiyama designed the car, he allegedly was inspired by the Porsche 924. On the other hand, the aerodynamic played its crucial role in the car’s shapes, including the pop-up headlights at the front. The RX7 was a sporty coupe for enthusiast drivers. Apart from the rev-happy engine, Mazda installed a complicated rear suspension system built to counter-act the toe-in and toe-out situations during high-speed cornering maneuvers.
