1984 Mazda RX-7 GSL-SE

135hp/135 ft-lb worth of buzzy rotary power. With the introduction of the RX-7, Mazda marketed these as "front mid-engined" which meant the engine was slightly behind the front axle. Mazda recently announced it would be discontinuing its use of rotary engines, and possibly the RX-8. Hopefully they've got something similar in the pipeline. Another marque abandoning small, sporty cars to make crossover suv's and the automotive equivalent of appliances would be a travesty.
