Why set your sights low with a new RX7 or RX8, unless you think the next gen twins (which more than likely won't even be twins anymore) are going to get a significant gain in hp/torq

The RX 7 / RX 8 will be targeting the 911. The twins are no big deal, they are all looks and no go.

I've owned 3 Miatas, and I was really looking forward to this event - which turned out to be the worst product unveiling I have ever seen. Where are the engine and chassis specs? What's the real projected weight? Where are the details on production? How about some better views of the car while Duran Duran Duran Duran droned on?

I didn't get any more tonight than I got from the "accidental" release of the drawings last night.

Was thinking the same thing. That would be a strong base for a track car if Mazda does it right. I'm hoping the platform will be robust enough to get to 300HP relatively easily, unlike the earlier generations. It's never been an issue with the chassis, hopefully the engine and tranny will allow room to grow.

It was kind of an odd event--it wasn't really an unveiling more than a glorified sneak peak, and to Mazda's credit they never really said it was anything more than that--I know the auto journalists going in weren't expecting specs and such, they may not even be finished tidying all that up.
We'll see what happens this weekend, but I doubt we'll get into the serious nitty gritty until the Chicago car show.
