ONLY 25K ORIGINAL MILES, WELL CARED FOR & UNMOLESTED, SUPER CLEAN, HARD TO FIND!
This 1993 RX7 is the car that changed things forever at Mazda. Sure, the Miata made 2-seaters relevant again, but it was the third-generation RX7 that fully cemented their light-weight, driver-oriented, joy-of-driving image. Still rotary powered, this RX7 was a fantastic performer in every regard and is still a delight to drive even by today's standards.
Showing just 25,482 original miles, this is a very special 2-owner car. Originally purchased by a father for his son who went away to college, it's been exercised only about 500 miles per year since then. A lot of these were modified and raced (I recall that they were nearly invincible in Solo II competition), so finding an exceptionally clean, low-mileage example is quite extraordinary. It's wearing correct Montego Blue Mica paint, which is somewhere between blue and green depending on how the light hits it, and it's arguably the most appealing of all RX7 colors. It gives the car a more grown-up look that suits its grand touring image perfectly. As you'd expect, it shows very little wear and tear and thanks to living indoors all its life, it's got a vivid shine. Even the nose and soft rubber chin spoiler are excellent, and details like the fog lamps, Mazda emblem on the nose, and integrated rear spoiler make the car look clean and purposeful. This is still one great-looking sports car.
The interior on this model (the Luxury model if you're an enthusiast) is obviously less hardcore than the R2 sports model and today it's the one you want to own. Handsome tan leather buckets show only minimal signs of age and use and the body-hugging contours are perfect for the athletic suspension. This is definitely a driver's car, with the controls tightly arrayed around the steering wheel and the gauges are bold, clear, and easy-to-read and covering all the major functions, including a big tach right in the center. Luxury features include power windows, A/C, and that incredible Bose stereo, whose wave-form speaker system is that complex-looking apparatus in the trunk. Carpets, dash pad, and even the leather-wrapped wheel remain in excellent condition with obvious signs of care. The sunroof opens wide enough to make the RX7 feel spacious inside and even with that speaker snaking through the rear compartment, there's a good bit of storage available, including a small package shelf behind the seats.
The 1.3 liter twin-rotor Wankel engine is an RX7 trademark. With the most butter-smooth power curve and a sky-high 7000 RPM redline, this was an engine that re-wrote the rules. It's not a torque factory, but keep it spinning where it's happy and you'll find it's plenty punchy, especially with the RX7's modest curb weight, a fantastic combination. With so few miles, important things like the oil seals are still in good order so no worries there, and there are exactly zero modifications under the hood. It's linked to a 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission that does a pretty good job of keeping the engine in its sweet spot and is quite unobtrusive when you're just commuting. The athletic all-independent suspension rides well and handles superbly, again thanks to the light weight bodywork, and massive brakes are effective and confidence-inspiring. Handsome 5-spoke alloy wheels are in excellent shape and wear 225/50/16 Pirelli radials all around.
Go find another one this nice and with so few miles. With interest in Japanese sports cars ticking up, this is arguably the most desirable generation of all RX7s, and you just can't go wrong with a low-mileage original car like this. Call now!
