1994 Mazda RX-7
1994 Mazda RX-7
The Wankel engine is a type of internal combustion engine using an eccentric rotary design to convert pressure into rotating motion. All parts rotate consistently in one direction, as opposed to the common reciprocating piston engine, which has pistons violently changing direction. In contrast to the more common reciprocating pistons designs, the Wankel engine delivers advantages of simplicity, smoothness, compactness, high revolutions per minute, and a high power-to-weight ratio.
This Mazda is self described as having a heavy influence from the Porsche 944 for the body design. Seen here is a 1994 version bathed in Montego Blue Mica with saddle brown leather interior, and in excellent condition with sunroof, and a 1.3 Liter Wankel Engine assisted to top speed with a two turbo setup.
Nicely preserved Montego Blue Metallic, straight gapped steel panels with matching crash bumpers, mirrors and badging (look ma no chrome!), are straight and minding their gaps nicely. Hidden headlights increase the slipstream coefficient as well as the bulbous molded neoprene crash front bumper. All nicely sculpted and rounded, even the door handles have been designed into the back of the doors higher up next to the B pillar. Speaking of which houses a wonderfully curved, rounded large rear greenhouse glass that meets up with the rear trunk edge with a spoiler on top. On the back integrated smoothed over edge rounding taillights float above another neoprene molded rounded rear bumper. 16-inch standard alloy wheels are on all 4 corners. Overall exterior presents as gapped, with several chips and some slight scratches in the finish throughout, mainly due to previous spats with insects hitting at high speed and unfortunate shopping cart dings!
Saddle brown leather with horizontal stitched tufting in the center with plain piped racing inspired bolsters, and an integrated headrest are seen in an otherwise black textured and molded environment. These seats offer a sporty grab you but are very comfortable. Door panels use smoothed over molded plastic in black, and show Pioneer speakers for that added sound on the sides. A pioneer sound system sits in the center console and gives you the option to play CD's, or an AM/FM radio. Enough buttons to keep a 747 pilot occupied, are all laid out nicely on the dash and center console, which also houses the shift lever. Instruments are all original and clean and are neatly tucked under a curved eyebrow padded dash top in front of the driver. A shout out to the sunroof which opens by sliding back on the roof, and never really disappearing, but adds some extra airflow and sunshine. Tan carpeting adds to the two-tone effect with the saddle leather and black.
The Wankel Rotary 13B (1.3 liter) with a twin turbo setup for extra kick, can put out 255HP's. EFI, and a 5-speed manual bolted to the rear of the mill. On the back is a 4.10 limited slip rear axle.
Some slight patina and a peppering of surface rust on some of the usual suspects, but all unremarkable. Corrosion has crept in on the cast aluminum parts, but these remain functional with the corrosion being merely cosmetic. ABS and 4-wheel independent suspension add to the handling capabilities of this sports car. Power disc brakes are all around along with power steering.
A quick starter and great driver. This car is loads of fun to drive as it corners like it's on rails and accelerates nicely. All functions were working at the time of the drive, and the consigner states that the original factory radio is with this car in a box if you want to switch it out.
Overall very nice condition RX-7, mechanically sound, cared for, and when you compare it to a 944, less than half the price. One might say more bang for your buck. Plus, the twin turbos are a nice kick in the bucket seat.
