Cars.com Reviews the 2011 Mazda RX-8

2011 Mazda RX-8 The 2011 Mazda RX-8 is certainly a rare breed, and it’s going extinct fast because Mazda recently announced that the model has been discontinued. The RX-8 is the last car powered by a rotary engine, an odd engine that has captured the hearts of many enthusiasts for decades. Still, oddity isn’t necessarily a good thing: The RX-8’s small-yet-powerful engine doesn’t make the car feel fast, and its fuel economy is about as poor as some full-size trucks and SUVs, says Cars.com editor Mike Hanley.

Easily the best handling car I have ever driven. Typical low quality dumb downed review I have come to expect from this website :-(

I believe it handles well, there just isn't a market for these anymore. If someone wants a fast 2 door coupe, the M3 and Camaro and mustang are faster and better looking choices.. in my opinion.

There have been close to 200,000 RX-8's made since 2003.
The Mazda RX-8 has NOT Stopped being made, ONLY for the North American and European markets, mainly due to emission regulations, as have many other models/brands of cars. The Mazda RX-8 is still being made at the only Hiroshima plant for local (Japan), Australian, New Zealand and East Asian markets, in fact there was a production run on Sept 1st, 2011....Please do not report incorrect information.
