Mazda RX-7 history
In the 1970s, Mazda set out to do two things: perfect the rotary engine and build a sports car that could compete with the popular Porsche 924 and Datsun Z-series. The first generation of Mazda RX-7 cars debuted in 1978, offering an aerodynamic exterior, large glass hatchback and pop-up headlights. The compact Wankel rotary engine was positioned behind the front axle, allowing for better weight distribution. With the second generation, 1985 to 1992, Mazda's power and performance increased. Mazda introduced a 187 horsepower turbo-charged model in 1987, a convertible version in 1988 and a naturally aspirated Mazda RX-7 in 1989. The high-performance third-generation ran from 1993 until 2002 but was only available in North America until 1995.

Offering powerful performance, sharp handling and supercar looks, the Mazda RX-7 has long been popular with car enthusiasts and collectors.

Also known as the FD series, this generation was only available in North America for three years before being discontinued but was sold in Japan until 2002. The 1993 Mazda RX-7 was equipped with a 255 horsepower twin-turbo twin-rotor engine and your choice of five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. By 2002, available power had been boosted to 276 horsepower on Japanese models.
