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.
I thought the EVO should never evolve away from anything but the 4g63, but it did. So I think it would be ok for an RX to be non-rotary.
I think they would at least need to make the rotary more economical.
It sucks down fuel worse than some v8's, chugs oil like no other, and if you are rotary-illiterate and try using synthetic oil in it, you blow it up.
But the worst is the whole flooding issue. Even the new rx8's did it! I don't know about anyone else, but I don't want to own a new car that sometimes starts and sometimes doesn't.
So I think if I really want a high revving engine, I'll buy a Honda ;p
