Did anybody else catch this one? It showed pics of the RX7 and said something like "it started with the RX7". Then pictures of the new Miata, and something like "this was next". THEN it said something like "the story continues.." (sorry, my short term memory sometimes isn't up to par, personaly, I blame it on Agent Orange in the local tap water) This ad really got me excited! Is Mazda going to bring back the rex, which is now making nearly 300hp? Do they have something entirely new up their sleaves? Personally, I think that if they put a twin-turbo wankel in a Miata, it would be the hottest thing since sliced bread.

Anybody here know what's up with this?

If thats the commercial I think it is, you are gonna be disappointed. It ends with the rear view of Mazdas new "mini-ute" driving down the road. Afraid that's your latest and greatest from Mazda. Don't believe the hype.

Stimpy's right - this commercial is hyping the Mazda Tribute, a version of Ford's new Escape - a smallish SUV.

Geezis - how can they possibly compare the driving experience of a Miata or RX-7 with a freakin' SUV?

Yeah, the story continues - with same rotten ending as Pontiac's story. (Man, I'm grouchy today)

Even though the commercial is disappointing, there may be a happy ending after all. Its been a while and I don't remember the details, but I believe over this past winter I had heard or read that Mazda is going to bring in a high HP car, using the 300 HP dual rotor engine. The show car it was in I believe had 4 doors, but that doesn't mean the car will in production. It was rumored the engine would appear in a new RX-7 coupe based on the Miata chassis. It sounds interesting, if they in fact build it.
