    Default Mazda RX7 VS RX8

    Hello everyone,

    Can anyone tell me the difference b/w Mazda RX-7 & RX-8. Also is Mazda RX-7 still in production or has it been replaced by RX-8?

    Which one is better in terms of pickup, long, handling/braking and looks.

    Regards.

    both r plain rubbish cars..believe me..both have rotary engines which have a life span of not more than 3-4 yrs..plus an rx-8 is considered to be a girlie car

    both awesome cars. rx8 is the best selling coupe in the uk currently. rx7 was designed to take on Porsche and da likes. Was more than a match for the 944/968. Rx8 replaced the rx7 though has gone downmarket. Rotary engines are a thing of beauty....smooth as silk and their compactness aids weight distribution. too complicated for ur everyday pakistani mechanic though

    why do you want to put 996 in a boxter first of all..
    we dont mess with engines or drive train......all the cars I buy are wrecked or damage........they all run and lot drive ..........so about swaping a engine of 996 in a boxter..you wont get your return on it..

    Replaced by Rx8 ...

    Rx7 was 1800cc but Rx8 is 1300cc ...

    Rx7 was designed for sort of racing and there was a model which was twin turbo and called Rx7 TypeR ...

    But Rx8 is a sort of ladies car ... look like sports but not actually a sports car ...
