Nobuhiro Yamamoto, head of a car company, recently said that “the new RX-7” should appear in 2017. This means that we have to wait another four years. This is a quick second in the automotive world.

Toyota released the car 86/GT86 and Scion FR-S, which provided it with more popularity than any other car like Auris, Corolla and Camry. Lexus lost money with the release of supercar LFA, but this machine has allowed it to compete in the Premier League, which features Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini. Although more than a decade ago, the third generation of Mazda RX-7 also cause problems for Porsche.
