Mazda confirms that it is working on a new rotary engine via Twitter

Last week Mazda unveiled the RX-8 Spirit R – a farewell to the four-door, four-seat rotary engine sports car. So does that mean Mazda won’t be doing any other rotary engine powered cars? Not at all.

In fact, when the Mazda RX-8 Spirit R was released, the company’s Representative Director, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO, Takashi Yamanouchi, said that “Mazda remains committed to its ongoing development.”

“Thank you so much for all your supportive messages concerning the RX-8 and the rotary engine! We are also excited. Mazda is aiming to achieve a breakthrough with the ‘Skyactiv’ technology, and we are zealously working on new models to house the next generation rotary engine. Thank you for your continued support!”

All of you rotary fans can now relax.
