VERY cool. I've been becoming a bigger and bigger fan of him and his company's work.

That's pretty cool. More parts though. Wonder if they weigh more.

The benefits of the additional 30% more HP and 30% better fuel efficiency will outweigh...


any additional weight.

Not to mention better emissions and tuning capability.

Cool post, thanks Jim

Yep, it's the Mazda RX-9. Mazda engineers have evidently been able to make the Wankel Rotary emission compliant again by making it a hybrid, using an electric powered turbo for low RPM duty combined with a traditional turbo for mid-upper range power.

Having spent 30+ years driving Euro cars (BMW, Porsche, Audi, Jaguar, Rover, Alfa Romeo, Fiat and VW), it has only been in recent years that I realize that many Asian cars of today are fit/finish/performance equal to the Euro car offerings now. No, I'm not talking about comparing a $35,000 Nissan/Toyota with a $125,000 Jaguar/Maserati, or a $175,000 Aston Martin. But a $45,000 Asian car compares favorably to a $55,000-60,000 German car. YMMV.

I went 30 years without owning an Asian car. At the time I bought a new '83 Toyota Supra Twin-Cam inline six, it was much better in those areas than the American cars that I had owned. Then I got my first Euro car (BMW 3-series) in '85 and became a German car disciple.

These days, I really only have interest in trying new and different experiences in cars.

Again, YMMV. I'n not trying to start a spitting contest.

IMHO electric and fly by wire vehicles are the future.. the days of heating the houses with coal and cooking with wood were numbered. Internal combustion the controlling of small explosions will become a thing of the past. Kind of like Red Barchetta in the Rush song.
