Uncompromised, that is what the third generation is. Uncompromised by the need to be anything other than a supreme sports car.
In 1992, Mazda released the third generation of the RX-7 as a 1993 model. This model came only as a twin-sequential-turbocharged rotary engine, the 13B-REW (standing for 13B, Rotary Engine Twin Turbo. Apparently, W is often used as shorthand for 'double' in Japanese). This engine was rated at 255 bhp peak output and was redlined at 8000 RPM, creating a performance car which has very few compromises. Interior room and practicality were characteristics not very high on the third generation design team's priority list. Excellence in handling, acceleration, and driver communication were.
The results are phenomenal.
-- Base - Your basic RX-7, but still not to be trifled with, featuring the standard 255 bhp engine, and cloth seats
-- Touring - Comes standard with the Bose? sound system, leather seats, CD player, power sunroof, driving lights, cruise control, rear cargo cover, and rear wiper. Available with automatic transmission
-- PEP (Popular Equipment Package) - Available in '94 and later, comes with leather seats, sunroof, and cruise control
-- R1/R2 - Racing-spec package. In '93, the R1 came standard with two oil coolers, front strut brace, suede-textured cloth seats, stiffer suspension and rear spoiler. In '94, the R2 superceded the R1, as customers were complaining the ride was too harsh in the R1.
Note: The 1994 Touring Edition came with a glass moonroof instead of a metal sunroof. In addition, the 1995 lineup did not include a touring model, instead, using a more a la carte method, allowing buyers to pick and choose which options where included.
