Mazda Tweet Confirms New Rotary Models

October 17th, 2011

Mazda appears to have addressed the “Will they or won’t they?” rumors regarding further development of the rotary engine and the answer seems to be that they will. A tweet from the automaker’s Japanese Twitter account contained the following statement, translated from the original Japanese:

“Thank you so much for all your supportive messages concerning the RX-8 and the rotary engine! We are also excited. Mazda is aiming to achieve a breakthrough with the Skyactiv technology, and we are zealously working on new models to house the next generation rotary engine. Thank you for your continued support!”

Of course, the tweet has already fueled speculation on what type of Wankel-powered models Mazda might be working on and when they could appear. Stay tuned for more details.
