"This RX7 is a better sports car than my 911 4S. It has a great deal more acceleration, and is just more fun to drive. It's light weight and low power to weight ratio and 50/50 weight distribution make it a ton of fun. The styling is better as well, with the timeless lines of the cray supercomputer designed body of the RX7 surpassing the timeless but less interesting lines of the Porsche. The distinctive humm of the rotaries makes me smile every time I drive my car and i've been driving this RX7 for 10 years. The downside? Finicky to repair, and few mechanics are capable for this type of car, and, like a 911, when something major goes wrong get ready to pay handsomely. But there are few sports cars that can compete with these cars, even after 13 years of development. These cars are incredible."

"One of the best sports cars ever made, hands down. These cars look like they could have rolled off the assembly line yesterday, and perform equaly as well. These cars require a fair amount of upkeep that is usually required with all cars of this caliber. I wouldn't recomend this car to anyone who is not willing to learn about its unique engine, complicated turbo system, or is not willing to work on it themself. As many people have stated, most Mazda dealerships are not up to the task of working on them. These cars are not made of glass like most people make them out to be, mine has never left me stranded and it gets driven like it was meant to. If you are looking to buy one know they are a pure sports car, there are no cup holders and not a lot of storage room or leg room for that matter. But, if you want to go fast, turn on a dime and out-perform cars that cost ten times what these do then this is the car for you. Overall, it is a great car to own, by far the most fun car I have ever driven, definitely unique and pretty reliable with good maintenance."

"Mazda got it all right with this car. Perfect weight balance, incredible power-to-weight ratio, supercar performance at a reasonable price. No wonder all the major car magazines raved about it, with at least one naming it 'Car of the Year'. Twenty years after its debut, this car will still turn heads with its timeless styling and fantastic performance. The low volume (about 15,000 cars only) sold in the U.S. over the three years they were available ensures you that this is a car you don't see very often, so if you are looking for a car that really stands out from the crowd the 3rd generation RX7 is the vehicle for you."
