It was reported earlier this year that Mazda will unveil the next-generation RX-7 concept at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show, which opens to the press tomorrow. While nothing has been confirmed, Mazda’s new design boss Ikuo Maeda told AutoCar that the automaker is looking to produce a successor to the RX-7 coupe.

Speaking to the press on the eve of the Tokyo Motor Show, Maeda said that he has already done sketches of an RX-7 replacement and is working hard to push for a production model.

“We really want to have an RX-7 and if the market allows us to build it we will have it ready,” he said.

Maeda said that the new RX-7 would be a two seater and would likely be powered by a rotary engine like its predecessors.
