Regrettably, though, the RX-7 has actually been missing from the marketplace for more than a decade. Its follower, the RX-8, has actually been stopped back in 2012 primarily due to its engine which was not able to fulfill all the emissions requirements. Lots of people hoped for a successor therefore far there have actually been numerous reports. Thankfully, though, more just recently there have actually been inside sources suggesting that the 2019 Mazda RX-9 is real.
It seems that the car is based on the RX-Vision idea and it would still feature a Wankel engine which is by far one of the most interesting powertrains ever to be fitted to a car.
2019 Mazda RX-9 Platform
Just like previously, it seems that the upcoming RX-9 will be based on an extended MX-5 chassis. Unlike the previous model, the new MX-5 is quite a bit lighter, narrower and shorter than in the past. The RX-9 would be broader, longer and it would feature a longer wheelbase too. Likewise, regardless of the rumors recommending for a carbon fiber building and construction, it seems that Mazda will choose regular steel and aluminum. This will allow them to keep expenses down while not adding much to the weight of the car. Lots of inside sources suggest at an overall weight of less than 2,700 pounds which would be rather remarkable.
2019 Mazda RX-9 Design
There is no doubt that the RX-Vision is a stunning looking car. Well, it seems that the 2019 Mazda RX-9 will obtain quite a bit from it. The long hood, short rear end, and low height are all anticipated to be seen on the production variation to a specific degree. The car is likewise expected to feature a development of the existing Kodo design with an accent on aggressiveness. Anticipate much slimmer headlights, a bigger grille in addition to curved lines throughout the body. Some also recommended a retractable spoiler in order to keep the streaming style while parked in addition to active air intakes in the front.
2019 Mazda RX-9 Cabin
Here, the RX-9 will more than likely feature just 2 seats. This has been the trend with the initial RX-7 with the only exception being the RX-8. The car will be a proper two-door sports car with a cockpit primarily designed around the motorist. Like with the previous models, the majority of the controls and the center stack are all anticipated to be focused on the driver. This will allow it to concentrate on experiencing driving qualities of the car and absolutely nothing more.
2019 Mazda RX-9 Engine
As we previously recommended, the 2019 Mazda RX-9 is anticipated to be the very first Wankel-powered car in years. Although not much is known about this engine, a Mazda agent did state a while ago that the dependability, fuel usage, and power delivery will be enhanced by a big margin over the Genesis. So far it seems that the new Wankel is larger. Lots of suggested that it will utilize 2 0.8 liter rotors for a total displacement of 1.6 liters. Likewise, unlike the RX-8 engine, this will be turbocharged, and it might use a new type of direct injection. Its Apex-seals have actually been rumored to be enhanced tremendously over the initial.
The result needs to be a 1.6-liter engine that will develop as much as 400 horsepower and well over 300 lb-ft of torque. All of this will be routed to the rear wheels by means of a manual gearbox. An automatic transmission is absolutely going to be an option for those desiring it, but the most visceral driving experience will be used by the handbook for sure.
