    the car that outperformed the corvette in 1993-1995 with a greater 1/4, topspeed and 50/50 weight distribution.

    at least the rx7 got the look of a sport car and the power of turbos to help it. rx8 is just pathetic. looks like a bee and with no horsepower, it shoulda went back to the drawing board, not production.

    anywho, rotary still sucks because it's fragile, burns oil!!, & terrible in gas efficiency.

    yeah, it is fragile... oil changing every 1,500 miles sucks arse... and gas milage is terrible in any modified car. I still like the RX-8 though, i think it has nice styling and a pretty good 50/50 weight distribution to go along with it.

    :love: for the corvette though... I am getting an LS2 for my next daily driver.

    i had the choice also a s2000 n a 350z but the rx8 was the most practical out of all these so thats what i went with.

    i do want to build a sr20 powered 92-95 miata later on as a project though, but thats outta the question since im still in school and can only afford 1 car

    Great car, I LOVED the way it drove when I took one out. Feels nice all around... just couldnt get any power out of it.

    That's why I couldnt pull the trigger...

    the rx8 isn't that bad. watch the top speed clip on it, they pretty much praised it, but they bashed on the styling.

    -nice car by the way.

    Any comments about how the car drives...pros/cons....problems you're having, what you really like about it?

    I'm looking into getting a new car and can't decide.
    How much are you paying monthly if you have it on lease?
