jamalunas said:The japanese production RX-8 has a 3 rotor engine, and ive seen/heard about 13-b rotorys from rx-7's being moded into 3 rotors. from what i hear they push almost 500HP which is quite a bit. its very possible that they could make a rotory CUV.
Good question...It has the RX-8 door setup...Does that mean there is a possibility of the CX-5 going rotary? I don't think it's too far-fetched...A rotary crossover...That would be cool!
If it is going to have a rotary, they wouldn't be touting it as CX - it would be another RX.
All RX-8's regardless of country have the 13B-based Renesis.
RX-7's with 3 rotors are done with an engine swap, take 13B out put 20B in.
Converting a 13B to a 20B is possible but needs very specific parts and someone that knows how.
