Description for Mazda RX-7 1988

Stk. 2260 1988 Mazda RX-7 Coupe The second-generation RX-7 FC was launched in 1986. Mazda focused on the Porsche 944 for inspiration, hoping to capitalize on Porsche's template for success in America. The RX-7 convertible came along two years after the launch of the hatchback coupe. Apparently Mazda engineers had conceived the possibility of a convertible during the early design phases of the FC. Mazda elected to build the convertibles in-house at their factory rather than shipping coupes to an... aftermarket supplier to hack off the roofs and make roadsters. As a result, the fit 20 years later is light years ahead of some of Mazda's competition. Our 1988 Mazda convertible is a nice original example of the RX-7 FC. The current owner has been a careful caretaker for the last 25 years (2-owner car). The mileage of 147k is somewhat misleading as the 1.3L rotary engine was replaced with a brand new unit at 99k miles and a partial restoration was completed in 2015. The Sunrise Red re-spray was carefully applied and has been very well maintained. Nice factory 'BBS-style' alloys accent the exterior. The interior has been reupholstered in high-grade gray vinyl and looks better than the original. Dash, carpeting, and door cards show little wear and are also in good condition. Convenience features include: A/C, AM/FM/Cassette stereo, cruise, and power convertible top. The RX-7's 1.3L rotary engine produces 148bhp and delivers 134lb/ft of torque through a 5-speed manual gearbox. Power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes and rack-and-pinion power steering are standard. The second-generation RX-7 FC is much more of a grand touring car than your featherweight roadster. It is a very nice ride. Call 704-550-2027 or visit our website at for additional information.
