2004 Mazda RX-8 The RX-8 has a 1.3L Wankel Rotary Engine which makes an impressive 197 HP while paired to a lame 4 speed auto. When it comes to an RX-8 of this year, best opting for one with a 6MT which also the engine is tuned to deliver an additional 41 HP (238 HP total) Its impressive that an engine of this displacement can deliver so much power. But these rotary engines are by no means fuel efficient. MPG's are comparable & sometimes worse to that of a V8. Interior is a weebit cramped, few mechanics out there specialize in repairing these engines if it ever needs servicing, & overall reliability of the RX-8 hasnt been great. I would much rather go for the much simpler MX-5 IMO.
