We have heard a lot of rumors about the 2015 Mazda RX-7. It’s funny because those rumors and speculations have been swirling for years and people are still wondering when the real details of the new series will be unveiled. This appears to be one of the most awaited offerings from the company. Mazda is reported working on the new series. Several parts might be revamped, like there is a rumor saying that a rotary engine will be introduced with two or three rotors. Another possible tweak is the engine which is expected to be 1.2 liters. The new engine will help move the car with an output of 250 bhp.

The company is also allegedly trying to better the fuel economy. It is such good news for fans. You can have a new car with better mileage and speed up on the road with better acceleration. The car is said to weigh 2,800 pounds. If the rumors see a light of day, we can probably see the new series by the end of this year or next year. People also make their own predictions regarding the pricing. If we trace back the history of the car, the base price for the new model is likely to start at $ 30,000. The new car is marketed as a lightweight car. Many people really love compact coupes that do not weigh too much.
2015 Mazda RX-7 release date
While the company has not revealed important details of the car, the rotary engine has got the media buzzing. It seems that people are really waiting for the release of the engine that is now under development. The platform that bases the production will be the same as what underpins the MX-5. The new car is allegedly due in 2015. They say there are no concrete plans so far, but the new rotary engine thing seems to be true after all. We should now wait for a launch date. We can see other cars in the lineup as well. There can be 5 with this included by the end of 2016.
Are you excited to see the new offerings? Speaking of design, the car will likely have a very simple design. The final shape is being worked on. They have not yet settled a design that will proceed to the production line. They seem to aim at lower production costs. To keep costs low, there will be some concrete plans, like the use of a conventional powertrain. As the company develops the rotary engine, the engine will probably not be something to boast. It can be a 600cc per rotor, which is smaller than what the RX-8 has.
2015 Mazda RX-7 improvements
It is not yet clear whether the engine will be a twin rotor or a triple-rotor. The company has not given confirmation about it. We can only hope for the power output to be improved along with mpg ratings. Another thing we know for sure is the fact that the engineers are working on the tip-tech sealing. They want to improve the technology. The goal is to achieve better clearances between the housing and the rotor tip. The enhancement will affect the compression ratio in a good way.
