Whisper the letters RX to any automotive enthusiast, and you are more than likely to see their eyes light up. No question about it, the Mazda RX-7 was a legend and the car that followed, the RX-8, also had quite the following. And now, a new model is about to join the fray as it appears Mazda’s brass has given its approval for a Mazda RX-9 which could be unveiled at next year’s Tokyo Motor Show.



According to numerous reports coming from Japan and Australia, the Mazda RX-9 will be officially unveiled in concept form at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show while the production model will be unveiled at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. The Mazda RX-9 would be a 2020 model and will be powered by a 1.6L, four-cylinder engine that will offer up to 400 horsepower thanks to a turbocharger. The weight will be kept at a minimum and won’t exceed 2,800 pounds, according to early reports.


In terms of design, the 2020 Mazda RX-9 will closely resemble the spectacular RX-Vision concept unveiled last October.


Granted we can’t be sure if any of this is actually true until we get a confirmation from Mazda. What is sure, however, is that there will eventually be a Mazda RX-9. The question is just when.
