Report: Mazda supposedly mulling a Mazda6-based RX-9

Australian outlet Motoring seems to have caught wind of a rather peculiar rumor regarding Mazda.

According to their finding, some “sources” within Mazda supposedly hinted at the possibility of a new flagship model called the RX-9.

We already know Mazda’s on the fence about making a new RX sports car, but not much news has developed regarding the automaker’s successor to the RX-8 given that a lot of it has remained to be rumors, or ideas that Mazda backed out on.

Though, we’re not sure this RX-9 rumor comes with much substantiation sinceĀ Motoring’s report says the new RX-9 could use a heavily-modified version of the Mazda6’s platform, which is front-wheel drive. The RX sports cars were always rear-wheel drive. So ultimately, Mazda would have to do some serious work to the current 6 platform in order to make this work.

An estimated reveal time of around 2017 is expected for the concept, while the production version should be scheduled for a debut in 2020.

What do you think of this rumor? We think you should take this one with a grain of salt.
