1993 Motor Trend Import Car of the Year and on Car & Driver’s 10 Best List.
The 1993 Mazda RX-7 is considered by enthusiasts to be one of the greatest cars ever made. Even by today’s standards, the car is quick, light, and has a well-balanced chassis that delivers exceptional handling and stopping power. Publications in its day ran all sorts of articles and comparison tests, declaring the RX-7 a purist’s sports car. Notably, the RX-7 bested the Acura NSX in nearly every performance category and was declared a better car than the Dodge Viper. It’s no wonder that the 3rd generation RX-7 dominated overseas racing circuits for over a decade post launch.
The third generation RX-7 also took the title of Motor Trend’s import car of the year in 1993 and appeared on Car & Driver’s 10 Best list every year it was offered in the U.S.
Low Mileage Original Condition
This vehicle has 39,600 miles and is offered with no reserve. It has had only three owners over 23 years. The first two owners were a father and then his mature adult son. The car was purchased new from Cush Mazda (now Mazda of Escondido). Unlike most RX-7s that come up for sale, this car is stock and unmodified with the sole exception of a modest window tint that can be removed if desired.
Rust Free
This is a rust free car with a clean undercarriage. You’ll not find many vintage cars as clean as this.
Desirable 5 Speed with Extremely Rare Configuration
Third generation RX-7s are rare cars. Only 13,789 made it to U.S. soil between 1993 and 1995. From that initial total, 2,116 were base model RX-7s with manual transmissions, making this more rare than an R1. The base model manual transmission configuration was also the lightest model sold in the U.S. and it had the most functional arrangement. This car came with a usable trunk, a solid roof for added torsional rigidity, and a suspension that is more livable than the one found on the R1.
Everything on this car is in working order
If you've shopped for a third generation RX7, then you know how difficult it is to find a nice one. Many of the cars imported to the U.S. have been totaled, parted out, worn out, or turned into racecars. Most of the cars that remain road worthy have been abused, heavily modified, or poorly maintained. Finding a low mileage, original car is difficult. When is the last time you saw any RX-7 advertised where everything works? Yes, everything on this RX-7 works!
Mechanically Sound
Mechanically, this car is in impeccable condition. The engine pulls like it did the day it was new. Both turbochargers function properly, the transmission shifts crisply, and the clutch engages smoothly. It feels like one expects a car that can go from 0-60 in under 5 seconds would. This car has no deferred maintenance.
More recently, the car has received the following:
•New clutch
•New radiator and coolant air tank separator
•New oil pressure sensor and gauge
•New stationary gear o-ring, rear main seal, oil filter base seal
•New secondary turbo value/pods
•New belts, battery, rear brakes, wiper blades
•Original factory radio rebuild
I have documentation/receipts for everything listed above. The tires also appear to be in new condition, and still have some of the nibs on them. I was also informed that all vacuum lines were recently replaced and look new. (I don’t have receipts for work done to the tires or vacuum lines.)
