1993 Mazda RX-7

The Mazda RX-7 is a front/mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive sports automobile produced and sold by Mazda from 1978 to 2002 over three models, all of which used a tiny, lightweight Wankel rotary engine. The RX-7’s initial version, SA (early) and FB (late) was a two-seater two-door hatchback coupé. It had a 12A carbureted rotary engine with the possibility of a 13B with electronic fuel injection later on. The second-generation Mazda RX-7, was available as a 2-seater coupe with a 2+2 option in select areas. This was powered by the 13B rotary engine, available in both normally aspirated and turbocharged configurations. The third-generation RX-7, dubbed the FD, was available as a 2+2-seater coupé with a limited run of a 2-seater variant. The engine was a sequentially turbocharged 13B REW. In this article, we will focus on the 1993 Mazda RX-7.

1993 Mazda RX-7 Performance and Fuel Economy

The FD series RX-7 debuted in 1993, with Tom Matano’s exquisitely organic style, greater power than ever (255 hp) from a twin-turbocharged, twin-rotor 13B 1.3-liter rotary engine, and a fresh emphasis on developing a pure, lightweight sports vehicle. A smaller main turbocharger and a bigger secondary turbocharger were used in the twin-turbo version. The RX-7 has extremely low turbo lag and a 0-60 mph pace of fewer than 5.0 seconds by kicking in consecutively. The RX-7 was a powerful performance with a curb weight of under 2,800 lbs, particularly in optional R1 and R2 configuration with upgraded suspension, structural stiffness, and aero add-ons. The RX-7 won MotorTrend’s Import Car of the Year award again in 1993.

Design, Comfort, and Quality

The interior, which includes leather-faced seats on the R1, follows the same shapes and flows as the exterior. The steering wheel is somewhat smaller than average and has the leather doughnut feel of a Formula One vehicle. The instruments are analog and chrome-rimmed behind an enormous cowl–yet another track accent. It has been determined that the RX-7’s performance and handling are simply as superb as it gets, except for tiny bumps in acceleration induced by hyperactive turbocharging. That hunger has been fulfilled by this 1993 vehicle. The RX-7 has undergone a weight-reduction program with a whiskery dipstick and an 18-pound aluminum hood. This slimmer Mazda weighs 600 pounds less than the Corvette and 700 pounds less than the Nissan 300ZX.

The 1993 Mazda RX-7 has the slender, free-flowing appearance of thin metal wrapped over stiffeners, which is the signature of any monocoque design in which frame and body are one. This unibody design seems to allow for softer curves and finer sculpturing in the RX-7, reminiscent of C Group racing or some gunmetal grey Mercedes or Porsche idea. It’s a modest, wonderfully proportioned automobile with five-spoke aluminum wheels, Le Man’s side mirrors, a gentle form.

Barely two passengers, two overnight bags, two tennis rackets, two microwave meals, and very little else fit in the trunk, which is only six cubic feet–less than half the boot area of a Ford Tempo. A thoroughbred racing vehicle must maintain unwavering balance throughout its performance range, no matter the movement. Suspension systems must be designed to track flat and with as little electronic gimmickry as possible so that tires strike vast patches against the road and grip like Velcro. Power must be an immediate victor overweight; brakes must be capable of controlling triple-digit speeds without scorching pads or flat-spotting tires; and steering must be a rapid, accurate extension of the driver’s cognitive process.
