October 29, 2015 – If you’re a fan of the Mazda RX-7 and RX-8, we have good news for you: Mazda is working on a successor, and the Japanese carmaker gave us a preview of the future sports car  at the Tokyo Motor Show by unveiling the RX-Vision concept.

The Mazda RX-Vision rotary sports car concept introduces the next-generation SKYACTIV-R rotary engine and Mazda’s vision in front-engine, rear-wheel-drive sports car styling.

Despite production of the RX-8 ceasing in 2012, Mazda’s research and development programmes to further evolve the rotary engine have continued uninterrupted.

Mazda says the new SKYACTIV-R technology represents “a significant step towards achieving a breakthrough in addressing three key rotary engine issues – fuel economy, emissions performance and reliability.”
