Ack.. I wish I could see the rear end. I'm almost scared the rear end would almost look like the MR-2 Spyder. It kind of has that shaping to it.

However the concept does look very sweet.

The RX-8 is only about 18 inches longer than an MX-5 and it has 4 doors. Small = lighter weight, so I would expect a new RX-7 to be only slightly longer than a MX-5.

Sweet, I say run with it. Wonder what the price point for the RX-7 will be....same as RX-8? Higher? It got a little outta control with the last RX-7, so lets hope drive out is less than $35K

This looks like its from Initial D or a warped 6 front. I think the rest looks ok.

It has potential.

I really liked the RX-EVOLV (I think that's the one) and would love to see more of that influence. But that drawing has potential. I hope they clean it up a bit.

According to those in the know. the "Concept" to be show in Oct. will look like the future RX-7 in the same way the RX-EVOLV looks like the RX-8

Oh good. if that analogy is correct (RX-EVOLV : RX8 :: above drawing : RX7); then they will clean it up.

PS. I don't think that was the car I was thinking of (RX-EVOLV). Perhaps I am thinking of the RX-01.

That would be it.

Cross that with the FD, and wow.

Okay, you can throw a little RX8 into it if you want, but not too much.

The front looks very Ferrari 348 GTB; one of my favorite cars of all time. The car almost looks TOO short (front to rear) to support that front. It looks a little stubby and abrupt. But overall a very nice effort.
