Report: A new rumor in for a supposed new Mazda RX-7 by 2020

The view ahead for a successor to Mazda’s long line of RX rotary sports cars has been bleak ever since the RX-8 was discontinued, mostly also because the high-maintenance routines of the RX-8 were enough to reduce demand to the point where Mazda was and still questions whether to make a new one or not. Additionally, the last RX didn’t bode well with new emissions and fuel economy regulations, further squeezing the chances of there being a new version.

Since then, rumors have been bouncing back and forth as to whether or not Mazda will proceed, to the point where we’re starting to not care anymore.

Either way, AutoCar says Mazda sources said a new RX-7 is possible using the MX-5’s new lightweight, rear-wheel drive platform.

Not much else is known, as per usual rumors and reports, but should the new RX happen, it might be named the RX-6 or RX-7. And while there’s still a lot to be skeptical about in terms of this development, it should be noted the RX could actually happen to celebrate Mazda’s 100th anniversary in 2020.

Hey, you never know…BMW a few years back said a supercar was not in their plans but now, rumors are floating about regarding a new supercar to celebrate BMW’s centennial.
