Mazda RX-8 Workshop Manual

The Mazda RX-8 was a sports car produced by Mazda from 2003 to 2012. It was the successor to the Mazda RX-7 and was known for its unique design and rotary engine.

Here are some key features and information about the Mazda RX-8:

  1. Design: The RX-8 had a distinctive four-door coupe design, with two small rear-hinged "freestyle" doors for rear-seat access. It featured a sleek and aerodynamic body with a low hoodline and a sloping roof.

  2. Rotary Engine: One of the standout features of the RX-8 was its rotary engine. It was powered by a 1.3-liter, twin-rotor Renesis engine. Rotary engines have a unique triangular rotor design that allows for high-revving power delivery and smooth operation. The RX-8's engine produced around 232 horsepower, although there were later versions with increased power output.

  3. Handling and Performance: The RX-8 was praised for its excellent handling and balanced chassis. The lightweight design, near 50/50 weight distribution, and precise steering made it a fun and engaging car to drive. The rotary engine's high-revving nature also added to the driving experience.

  4. Seating: The RX-8 had a 2+2 seating configuration, which means it had two front seats and two smaller rear seats. While the rear seats were not as spacious as in a traditional sedan, they provided some additional seating capacity or could be folded down to increase cargo space.

  5. Transmission Options: The RX-8 was offered with both manual and automatic transmission options. The manual transmission was a six-speed gearbox that was well-regarded for its smooth and precise shifting.

  6. Technology and Features: The RX-8 offered various features such as keyless entry, power windows, air conditioning, leather upholstery, and a sound system. Some models also included advanced features like a navigation system and Bluetooth connectivity.

It's worth noting that the Mazda RX-8's production ended in 2012, and as of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, there have been no official announcements regarding a successor or a new RX model. However, it's always a good idea to stay updated with the latest news from Mazda in case there are any developments related to the RX series.
