    "Renegade Rotary
    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."

    I wonder how much more they'll charge for it. Hopefully they do something like they did with the MS Miata, that thing is cheaper than a loaded Miata LS 6 speed.

    I dunno, I haven't even seen it on newstands yet. I'm going to hit Borders and Barnes and Noble this weekend, they usually have every magazine you can think of.

    I'd bet it gets better. My 160k mile '89 RX-7 got 25 mpg on the highway..... just like my '02 WRX and '02 Spec-V did.
