Cool saw rx8

I saw a rx8 on my way to school wednesday morning. Too bad I was in bus(lost my liscense) cuz I would've stopped and look a it much more closer. I could only see the back and side of it.

The pics don't show how "muscled" that car is, well I can't really put words on how it looks like but in real that car is just so damn SICK!!


It was black just like this one.


just wanted to share Anyone saw one?

First time I saw one was the blackout day, it was stuck at the pump all day long. Cool guy, I talked to him for a bit. I see the same one almost every morning on my daily commute, a metallic gray 6-speed. The engine sounds amazing.

Owner of the Quizno's where me and Edwin are regular customers got it.
He showed us his car and what can I tell you. It looks OK, nothing special. Rear looks too much like S2K. Interior is nice though. He got Silver and I think it is the only color that looks good on it. Red and Yellow is bad.

Mazda recalled them because engine output was less than they advertised. Nothing wrong with the engine yet. We;ll see.

I have to agree, at first I thought it was one of them.

I think the car looks good, but I’m not a big fan of a coupe with 4 doors. The rear doors just ruin the look of the car. The hard break where the door is doesn’t work for me. If they could have integrated the door edge with perhaps the window (a natural break), perhaps it would look cleaner.

The same thing with the Saturn “4 door” coupe. The door opening just doesn’t work for me. I’d just buy a 4 door sedan instead.

The functionality for the 2nd set of doors though is great!
