Sleek, sporty, quick, and distinct, the 1989 Mazda RX-7 is a rising star in the world of Japanese classics. So it's great to see you can get one with all the right features – including A/C – for such an obtainable price.
Harbor Blue has a great look of a timeless classic, and in fact, the second-gen RX-7 coupe is all about providing everlasting appeal. The long hood with flat front end, well-defined fenders, and fastback rear will always be in good company (in fact, Mazda looks like they borrowed a few styling cues from Porsche.) This coupe has been enjoyed like a driver's machine should, but you can also tell it has been respected along the way. It has nice details with the 15-inch factory alloys, subtle pinstriping, sport mirrors, and bright dual exhaust tips. Plus, while the full-width rear spoiler is nice, the one we love even better is the look when the power sunroof slides out to create a roof spoiler.
Inside, the sea of blue continues. The carpeting, door panels, dash, and comfy cloth bucket seats have the feeling of originality. You'll slip behind the sporty three-spoke steering wheel and get excited as you grip the well-placed stick shift. Your heart will begin beating a bit faster as you watch the red-faced gauges begin to dance. The tach is prominently the center – another nod to Porsches. But more than just a pure sports machine, the RX-7 is great for the grand tour. There's an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input for your iPod; the rear hatch has enough luggage storage for a long road trip; and the air conditioning is blowing nice and cold.
The RX7's real calling card was the revolutionary two-rotor Wankel engine. This unique powerplant looks well-maintained, just like a well-respected car should. No pistons, no crankshaft, no valves – just a pair of triangular rotors inside a beer-keg-sized housing. The design was compact, efficient, and could provide the same power as its six and eight-cylinder competitors. But it's true hallmark was that it can rev to its 8,000 RPM redline with incredible smoothness. And you get to experience all of the powerband thanks to the full control of the five-speed manual transmission. Plus, the fully independent suspension, nice weight distribution, grippy Yokohama tires, and four-wheel disc brakes combine to offer the ideal mixture of performance and comfort.
This is the distinct and affordable coupe that loves the open road. So it's time to grab this deal while you can. Call today!!!
