The image brings an RX-Vision vs. RX-7 mashup, making the similarities between the two obvious. For one thing, the taillights of the two seem to be in perfect harmony and we can see the connection being made in the minds of the designers who signed the RX-Vision concept.
The mashup comes from a crew that goes by the name of importbible. These guys like to put such images on textile materials, so you might just be able to wear a t-shirt displaying this soon.
While we find the melange here damn rotary-sexy and we admit spending quite some time staring at it, we have to mention the idea of a modern-day RX-7 is not the best way for the RX-Vision to enter production.
Instead of giving us a two-seater sportscar, Mazda should build on the practicality aura of the RX-8. While we are not necessarily referring to the rear doors of the RX-8, a pair of actual rear seats in the back would make much more commercial sense than the RX-7’s layout.
If Mazda can at least pack a “+2” behind the front seats of the RX-Vision’s production version, while keeping the RX-7 styling nods, sales will be guaranteed.
