Mazda aggressively developing its technology, including next-generation car model RX-9. That said, according to international reports, sportcar uses a rotary engine that Mazda’s unique and never been used in the model RX3. In fact, the heart pacemaker is ever won the Le Mans 24 endurance race at 1991 with the Mazda 787B.
Only, rotary engine RX-9 in this brand-new environmentally friendly or hybrid, while the electric motor borrowed from Toyota. The two principals last year signed a cooperation.
So far the rumors are that the engine will be a revamped Renesis. It will supposedly resolve the oil gulping nature of the current Wankel and be more fuel efficient (the holy grails of Wankel enginedome?). The new powerplant should also rise in displacement from 1.3 to something near 1.8 liters. Everyone wants two turbos stuffed under the hood and that’s rumored as well, but we’ll have to see.
