"I've owned many sports cars in my life from Dodge Chargers to Corvettes and nothing I have driven or owned comes close to this machine. The design is like nothing else except the many car manufacturers that have stolen styles from this car. They have never equaled the look I might add. This car with minimal modification goes from 210 hp to 295 hp at the wheels on a car weighing in at 2900 lbs max. The sequential turbos perform flawlessly and the brakes are the best. The seats though made for a smaller person are the most comfortable I have had the pleasure to sit in. The handling for a mid nineties sports car is years ahead of its time as the styling inside and out. it's really unique and just plain beautiful. There are only a handful of these cars with under 20K miles left and I am lucky as heck to own a pristine example that is literally perfect. So if you ever find one of these cars with low miles, you need to have a look and a test drive. You'll be blown away."

"I've owned mine for 14 years. Purchased with 55K miles on it. As far as all the high maintenance stories you hear, it really depends on how it is cared for. Two things must be done if it is absolutely stock. First, remove the primary catalytic converter and replace it with a downpipe - otherwise it will kill the engine. Second, you must get a boost gauge. Mazda did not include one and without it, you cannot tell if the turbos are over boosting or not. After 20K miles of owning mine, it started overboosting - I immediately detuned the engine (turned the boost almost off) until I could figure out why and fix it. Turned out to be vacuum hoses that went bad and started to leak. One week later it was back on the road and solid. That was about 9 years so, all else has been everyday maintenance. If you plan to drastically increase the horsepower - which is easy to do - the engine won't last long. But relatively stock it is not much more trouble than any other performance car."

"Seriously, the 13b sequential turbo is a very powerful engine in a super balanced chasis. Tons of aluminum suspension components all engineered for track performance! One of the finest cockpits to step into for a stock 1993 model supercar. Trunk space is very limited and it's a two-seater, so you have rear storage compartments. Gearing is dialed in on this vehicle. 4.10rear end. a powerful rpm range of power on tap. lag does not exist on a properly running FD3S. If you do not believe me, test drive one."

Still turning heads at 16 years old. 1995 RX-7

"This car is not meant for anyone that doesn't Love to drive. I crack a smile just looking at it in the garage. Granted it takes more care ($) than a Honda but every penny is so worth it when it launches out of a hairpin turn clawing the asphalt for traction like it was nothing more than a walk in the park. Few drivers will ever know what this car is capable of. It's limits are so far beyond what can be done legally on the street. You have to get use to heads turning, fingers pointing and explaining "no pistons". Stock is insanely powerful for the street and Modified units should come with life insurance. You can buy more dependable transportation but you will have to remind me why."
