Mazda RX8

Mazda RX-8 is a sports car manufactured by Mazda Motor Corporation. His first appearance in 2001 at the North American International Auto Show. It is the successor to the RX-7, and like its predecessors in the RX area, it is driven by a rotary engine. RX-8 has begun sales in North America in 2004-model.

Mazda introduced vehicles with rotary engines in the United States in 1971, from R100, followed by the RX-2, RX-3 RX-4 RX-5, and finally three generations of RX-7 car sport. But the lack of comfort and convenience, combined with high prices and declining interest in sports cars and coupes now led to Mazda RX-7 drag in most major markets except Japan. After 1995, the Mazda suffered a relatively commonplace in the United States save the MX-5 Miata. As popular interest in the agreement and import performance cars has resurfaced in the 1990s, thanks in part to different cultural influences such as the popular Sony PlayStation game Gran Turismo  Japanese automakers waded back performance and the market for sports cars in the United States.

Additionally, Mazda has tried to reform itself, at the time, in part to finance services and management consulting, Ford and successfully developed a new range of desirable cars of high quality and excellent style driving dynamics, and the Mazda6 will start after the Mazda3, paving the way for the arrival of the next generation of Mazda's rotary sports car.

Development of the RX-8 can be attributed to the car as far in 1995 Mazda RX-01 concept, which included an initial iteration of the 13B-MSP. Naturally aspirated with side exhaust, this engine produces 220 hp (160 kW). As permitted by the financial statement of Mazda at that time and the growing interest in market SUV, the RX-01 has never seen the development or production. However, a 'skunkworks project' team of engineers in the development of Mazda 13B-MSP keeps alive with MX-5 Miata chassis, eventually attracting the attention of management at that time had been under the strong influence Ford. Development 13B-MSP peak and finally led to his debut with the nickname concept car RENESIS RX-Evolve have begun to look to the production RX-8 with the 'free style' rear suicide doors.

Design has been developed through a design contest for the tradition of Mazda engineering offices in Japan, the United States and Europe. The project has received official approval from senior management and, ultimately, the RX-8 concept car (design / engineering model) was produced and presented in 2001 to more closely resembling the production version. Near the production a reference to show, RX-8 has been shown shortly after the Tokyo Motor Show 2001, pending final approval for production. The production of the RX-8 recall this vehicle not only to cut the little details, and a work first began in February 2003, Mazda in Hiroshima, Japan situated.
