The RX-8 would be perfect with the 300hp EJ25 from the Subaru STi.

    FUCK Mazda's dumb rotaries. :OP: Low center of gravity front-mid-mounted flat-4, and plenty of modding potential FTW.

    The RX8 will be perfect when they discontinue producing it.

    The RX-8 had a rocky start with its emissions downgrade which further weakened the car but the chassis is fantastic.

    Mazda definitely missed an opportunity for a real winner by putting out an underpowered car.

    The RX-8 just won a subjective comparison test recently in which Car and Driver pitted it against the Ford Mustang Shelby GT, new Audi TT, and Nissan 350Z. Coulda been a really great car with the right motor.

    I imagine that I'd take it more seriously if you didn't have to downshift two gears to maintain cruising speed up a mild grade on the highway. :ugh2:
