Mazda teases a new sports car concept, could signal the return of the RX

Mazda excitingly teased a new sports car concept, which could finally lay all the rumors to rest regarding a new RX.

So many rumors bounced back and forth as to whether or not Mazda was actually going to produce a successor to the RX-8, with equally just as much of toss in terms of the fate of their renowned rotary motor.

But finally, thanks to this new teaser, it appears all is not lost.

Obviously, cards were kept close as to what exactly this new sports car could be, but the long hood and raked, sportback-like roof is very reminiscent of the original RX models. The long hood also implies front-engine placement, and of course, rear-wheel drive.

Is this exciting or what? Get ready for it at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show later this year.

Mazda to Unveil New Sports Car Concept at Tokyo Motor Show

— Japan-debut of Mazda KOERU and racing-spec Mazda Roadsters among fourteen models on display —

HIROSHIMA, Japan, Sept. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Mazda Motor Corporation will hold the world premiere of a new sports car concept model at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, which runs from October 30 through November 8.*1 A total of 14 models will be on display at the Mazda stand, including crossover concept Mazda KOERU making its first appearance in Japan, two racing-spec Mazda Roadsters (known as Mazda MX-5 outside Japan) and the Cosmo Sport (110S outside Japan), first introduced in 1967.

The design of the sports car concept to be unveiled in Tokyo is modern but maintains a sense of lineage and authenticity, appearing almost to condense Mazda’s entire history of sports car development into a single model.

In line with the company’s theme for the Tokyo Motor Show this year, “Accelerate toward our dreams,” Mazda will make an appeal for the brand’s unique approach to driving pleasure. In addition to the sports car concept, Mazda KOERU will be on display along with new-generation models featuring SKYACTIV Technologies and KODO—Soul of Motion design. A motor sports exhibit will feature racing-spec Roadsters and the Cosmo Sport will complement a heritage display showing Mazda’s history of convention-defying engineering.
