Simply put YES. I own a Mazda RX8 231ps. Fantastic car, lives up to all the hype. Bought it new in '04 and have had no problems what so ever. It is a four seater but the suicide doors make entry onto the back seats as easy as a four door saloon. Huge boot and plenty of legroom all round. My two big teenage lads sit in the back with ease. Digital speedo nice touch and great sounds from Bose speakers. Rear wheel drive with ceramic breaks that give awesome stopping. This is a twin rotary engined car that needs high revs, red lines at 9000. The RX8 can hit 60mph from a standstill in 6 seconds flat, and the top speed should be in the 150 mph range (untested by me!).
You also have to top up the oil, I do about 1Lr every 1000 miles or so. Had a recall for petrol management system problem that I didn't know existed, fixed same day. Mazda dealership fantastic. Up grades worth it Sat nav and leather heated seats . Only negative thing i can think about is no rear window wiper. If you have to worry about petrol consumption then this is not the car for you. But who cares, I don't, it's worth every penny when you're driving. If you want to drive around with a smile on your face buy an RX8. It's a remarkable car. It truly offers something different from a style perspective and from a mechanical one. Go for a test drive you'll fall in love I know I did.
