Cool BRAND NEW 1995 Mazda RX-7 for sale - yes, RX-7, not RX-8.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...500324490&rd=1

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this auction listing. A brand new 1995 Mazda RX-7?!?! I wonder where it has been stored for so many years. If, outside, then the Florida sun has gotten to the paint. I doubt it, but it's tough to tell with those crappy pics. If it was a 5 speed, and they didn't want so much, I would consider it. $37K for an auto?!?! I didn't place this in here as a for sale item, more like discussion. Since, I am still amazed to see one of these for sale as a brand NEW vehicle.


I used to have one (1993 model), and they are great sports cars. The only problem is that when you start modding them, they become unreliable.

That style looks more modern than that ugly RX-8.

The 3rd generation RX-7 has a timeless design. I remember having people asking me (back in 2000 when the car was 7 years old) if it is new! If Mazda did a retro thing w/ the RX-7 in a few years, like Ford is doing w/ the Mustank, I would be in interested.

I found out that the car was on display in the showroom for all those years. Why? Who knows?

It's not brand new though. But, it does have a 5 speed.

There's no option on eBay for "rotary". I listed my car as a 2-cyl. in there. It just doesn't matter.

Two years ago, my friend's dad was selling his pristine 1993 RX-7 R1 (28,000 miles) for $17,500. I drove it a couple times, but decided not to purchase given the problems inherent with those cars. As a second car, I'd own one in a second.
