Mazda was looking to produce a replacement for their RX3 model and began production of their new sports car in 1978 making it available as a 1979 model year. The Mazda RX-7 (also called the Savanna and Efini RX-7) was built to be affordable and fun, similar to the Datsun and Nissan 280Z. Featuring many great sport features such as its unique twin-rotor rotary engine situated slightly behind the front axle, rear wheel drive layout, near 50/50 weight distribution and its sleek sporty front-midship, this vehicle was not only well received by the media but the consumers alike. With its new twin-rotor design, this engine produced 100 hp and was able to top speeds of 120 mph. This was such a smooth running engine that a buzzer was installed to the tachometer to give its driver a warning when pushing 7,000 rpm!
