This 1993 Mazda RX7 Might Be The Best In The Country And You Can Buy It Right Now

If the 60s were Muscle Car nirvana then the 90s was heaven on earth for Japanese sportscars. You had the Toyota Supra, Acura NSX, Mitsubishi 3000 GT and if you were lucky enough to live in a country that sold it, The Nissan GTRs. There were many others too, you really were spoiled for choice if you wanted fun, affordable sports car. They were all spectacular to drive machines each with their own nuance that made them stand out.

The NSX was a mid-engined rocket-ship that threatened Ferraris and Porsches of the day at a fraction of the cost. The 3000 GT was a car ahead of its time. The Supra was a tuner’s dream and could handle insane horsepower on stock internals. The GTR’s were technical marvels, AWD speed machines that made the elite stand up and take notice. The best part about them was they were all affordable for normal people. Something their modern counterparts have lost sight of.

The oddball sitting in this sea of automotive awesomeness was the Mazda RX7. Not because it was a crazy design, not because it was groundbreaking, rather because of the unique piece that lived under the hood. The Wankel Rotary engine was a massive departure from the norm. The engine had been around for years but the third generation FDs was the engine’s peak. The Wankel’s party piece was huge power from tiny displacement. the 13B only displaced 1.3 liters but made 255 horsepower in the RX7. It had a massive redline and was capable of making much more power without spending a fortune.

If all that sounds like your particular brand of whiskey, then good news is at hand. You can buy a piece of the weird (but awesome) life in the form of this spectacular 1993 RX7. The car is being sold by our friends over at Broadway Supercars (We recently visited their facilities, you can check it out here) Like all of their cars it is immaculate, every nut and bolt is as it was as it left the factory. It is bone stock so no worrying about some knucklehead’s back yard tuning. No worrying about abuse or racing or any other thing that these cars are typically exposed to. This car represents the best of the breed and has been checked front to rear, top to bottom. If you want the awesome odd ball from the greatest era of Japanese sports cars then look no further this is the one you want!
