Question Mazda RX-9 for cy2020my?

from FiN autoshow thread

Mazda RX-9 'locked' in
But sub-1300kg, 300kW rear-drive rotary coupe won't be released until 2020

Motoring.com.Au

August 24, 2016


Mazda’s board of directors has formally approved the design, engineering and production of the company’s long-awaited successor to the RX-7 and RX-8 rotary coupes, according to Japan’s Holiday Auto magazine...(with questionable renderings, imho)...

...Expected to be called the RX-9 — a trademark Mazda has registered — ... likely to reveal a prototype version at the 2017 Tokyo motor show to mark the 50th anniversary of its first rotary model, before the final production model debuts at the 2019 Tokyo show...

...Mazda’s next-generation rotary engine ... speculated that the Mazda sports car will combine turbocharging and diesel-style HCCI compression ignition in a world-first application, made all the more significant by applying the advanced fuel-delivery and ignition technology to a rotary engine... (output right around 400 hp?)

Under 2900 pounds with more than 400HP! Mazda is like that favorite band from your youth that never really hit the big time, yet put out great album after great album all while worthless trash like Poison headlined arenas and sold albums by the millions!

I have to believe that with it's power to weight ratio it's going to be in the same league with the Nissan GT-R which itself is priced in the stratosphere. I would bet the RX-8 would be a far more entertaining drive than the very powerful, yet overweight GT-R to boot.

What's worrisome about an upmarket push? Mazda has always been a niche brand, might as well take advantage of that exclusivity for profit.

I'm definitely a fan of their approach, it's not the crappy boy-racer Mazda I couldn't care less about before.
