1993 Mazda RX-7 Twin Turbo

13

1993 Mazda RX-7 Touring I got an incredible deal on this car from a local motivated seller. It was in bone stock condition with bad paint and a new PFS engine. I had been looking for an NB to turn into a track car at the time but this was priced similarly so I couldn’t pass it up. Over the last dozen years or so, the car has been set up to be more safe and reliable with greater cooling capacities while still running stock boost levels. My long-term plans are for continuing to improve my skills as a driver in HPDE events without relying heavily on performance upgrades and just enjoy the car the way it was meant to be used.

Nice FD! Love the well-detailed spec list. Good luck with the bodywork! I have an FB (check out the Reader's Rides, it's the Red GSL) and it needs the front re-done (looks like they slid it into a trailer hitch right at the headlight) so I'm in the same boat (as far as following the Saab articles). Keep us updated!
