The RX-8 Sport with either the manual transmission or six-speed automatic has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting around $27,000. The Touring with six-speed manual starts around $30,000, while a fully-loaded Grand Touring with automatic tops out around $37,000.

Nothing can be compared to the feel of a rotary engine that is turbocharged. A turbocharged Mazda RX-8 provides for higher output levels and a smooth power delivery. It is ideal to place the turbo low in the chassis in order to yield low temperatures under the hood.
The Mazda RX-8 top speed is 145 mph. The transmission fluid needs to be replaced every 30,000 to 60,000 miles.

While nothing significant was etched in stone, lots of Mazda owners and third-party mechanics decided that the Rx8 rotary engine was experiencing lots of engine failure, due to ignition coil failure.
These cars were sent back to Japan because they were right-hand drive Japanese-market cars. They were sold to JDM car broker New Era Imports. RX-7 enthusiasts can build a replica of the “Tokyo Drift” RX-7 with the Veilside Fortune wide-body kit, but it comes with a hefty price tag of $16,770.

Another reason why the RX8 is cheap to buy now is because many are put off by the poor fuel economy of the car. Rotary engines might be small in size (and produce substantial power relative to that size) but they have a tendency to be thirsty.
Mazda has confirmed that there will be a successor to the RX-8 but that the new sports model could be merged with the next MX-5 roadster. Mazda president and CEO, Takashi Yamanouchi, disclosed that while speaking to a group of journalist at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show.

As the RX-8 didn’t change much over its seven year run, we’d recommend going with a 2010 or newer model due to the improvements in the engine that greatly reduce roughness, flooding and most importantly, oil consumption. If you’re on a budget and looking at an older model, try to find a low-mileage one-owner car.

The Mazda RX8 is an amazing car it sounds great and looks good too. It’s comfortable for a sports car and it is so much fun to drive. The reliability is below average but not terrible. It isn’t very expensive to fix the car either.
