The Japanese company is ready with a new patent. And we may guess it a revival of Mazda RX-9, another super sports car. This new model and its related document refer to something new of vehicle shock absorption structure, with technical details and designs for a spaceframe front end architecture. It seems perfect for rotary style- with the standard double wishbone suspension, but a large cross-member in the middle of front end design sees for a compact engine layout. Moreover, the plan is for lightweight aluminium use, and carbon-fibre reinforced plastic.
The company is in talks for the revival of the sports car after 2012 saw the demise of RX8. And now, it seems to be in comeback with its RX-Vision Concept, the biggest tease from the company yet. This is the perfect proof of its new Kodo II design and mentions the evident eagerness of the company t bring an RX-7 replacement to the market.
Initially, the idea was to build the RX-Vision concept as the production-ready for RX-9. And we expected the same comments on the 2017 Toyota Motor Show. But, company executive Kiyoshi Fujiwara put a delay to our thought by saying that the plan is on suspension. They want more time to collect money and resources to develop the Skyactiv-X spark ignition technology.
And if we consider the success of Skyactiv-X, then RX-9 may be a new-gen rotary engine, with the hybrid-electric drivetrain, to match the emission standards around the globe.
