Mazda RX-7

The Mazda RX-7 is a front-engine, rear-drive sports car manufactured and marketed by Mazda from 1978-2002 across three generations — all noted for using a compact, lightweight Wankel Engine.

The first RX-7 (1978–1985) was offered as two-passenger hatchback and as a 2+2 hatchback with "occasional" rear seats in some markets.

The second generation (1985–1992) was offered in 2+2 hatchback as well as two-door convertible body configurations.

The third generation RX-7 (1992-2002) (1993-1995 in the United States) was offered as a 2+2 hatchback and was noted for its engine's sequential twin-turbochargers.
