Rendered Speculation: Another stab at the 2012 Mazda RX-9

Would you like some car with those wheels? This latest rendering of the anticipated Mazda RX-9 sports car comes from an enthusiast in Japan and was posted on the Ford fan forum
Although the artist swears that it's close to the mark, the actual design, like the rendering featured on Winding Road, is expected to more faithfully portray the styling language previewed on the radical Furai concept. This illustration, meanwhile, appears to be more of an evolution of the current RX-8, but with enormous rims that would have to be somewhere in the neighborhood of 25 inches (which is farther than this thing would make it on public roads with those ground effects).

I hope they ditch the rotary, it'll be a much nicer car without it.
You're such a kidder!
The rotary is good and bad.

It's somewhat unreliable and makes for poor fuel economy. However, it revs crazy high and makes a lot of power for the size of the thing. Plus it's unique.

On one hand, it would be sacrelige to offer an RX-anything without a rotary. OTOH, I think ditching it would appeal more to the masses.
What masses? Thats like when they said "new" coke would be a better choice.
