sure looks like one... or at least looked, until the small mishappening... :D

strange though that it´s got the "scoop" and stuff. that really deosn´t fit into my picture of the wankel... then again, the wankel and the RX-7 are stuff i know very little aboot. (except the theoretic principles of the Wankel).

looks weird, but maybe it is one. don´t know what else it could be either, so...

yeah, reptilian, you´re right. it is though, in my oppinion, impossible to ruin a RX-7, since i think it´s so butt-ugly that my eyes burn each time i look at it. actually, no, that´s the Yaris Verso and the Fiat Multipla... (hmmm, maybe i should start a "ugliest cars ever" thread... or has that been done before?)

Awww man, i think the RX7 is a really nice looking machine, smooth lines, slightly menacing rear end, and that amazing wankle engine does somthing for me.
Even the 80's shape was somthing new in its day. I might post a Topgear vid from 1986 i think its was, when that shape RX7 and the Porsche 924 came of age.
There are both two "130 Mph" supercars.
. Its a classic imo. But i must admit the wankle engines used to be really bad, but all the niggles have been ironed out and now its a true sports car. Few tweaks here and there and you got your self a pretty dam fast car also.
