i saw one the other day. Looks very nice. but not something i would drive untill i was like 25 and needed a reliable non fun car but still fun. Get what im sayin? A mix between a 4door altima and accord type and a e30 and mr2 and so on little fun cars. Btw he was going pretty fast and the car was (i joke not) totally silent!

<span style='font-family:Geneva'><span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'><span style='color:red'>Fox</span></span> <span style='color:gray'>the Pirate</span>

well,... hmmm... FOX. Have you driven the new RX-8? I bet its fun and crazy to drive, at least the faster version. I've only driven the RX-7, but i remember it to be a fast and fun car....nothing close to a family car like the altima or accord. The RX-8 and RX-7 are sports cars bro.

So if the RX-8, to my understanding, is supposed to be a better handling and better performing car than the previous one, then it must be kick ass. I heard theyre coming out with a turboed version next year.

it's a sweet deal that they overrated the hp. everyone that bought one gets a check from mazda for $500 for apologizing!!!
