Those Mazda's are soooo sexy!! Can't wait for the Demio/2 to hit our shores!!

Ya sure that Porsche will have 400 ft/lbtq, but the way that diesels have to be geared it's not really THAT much.

I feel sad hearing Porsche is making the first diesel engine....

Is Ferrari gonna make a LOW-Revving Diesel Engine or Hybrid soon.... ?

I just feel sad about it personally

meh...11L/100km is not that great, especially when you consider that with the price of diesel being what it is, that's equal to about 13L/100km of normal gas.

Plus, if you actually WANT to use that 400lb/ft, that shit's gonna guzzle gas like a mofo.

The Mazdas...kinda nice, but the stickers have to go.

why? Audi won LeMans with a diesel...

Porsche went down the wrong road when then started making SUVs in the first place, IMO

Demio's came out back in 1996.. way before the Fit and Yaris... On a side note, I thought we'll be seeing the Ford Fiesta, and not the Mazda 2/Demio

RX-8 - Very nice. I hope the HK Government will allow the importation of personal cars with diesel engines again...

Anyway, Ferrari is already making hybrids when they put KERS (kinetic energy recovery system) on their F1 cars this year.

The Demio looks like a Yaris/Fit killer.
The cars look pretty nice. But I think the RX-8 still has the same underpowered specs?

Mazda designs are generally better looking than other brands like Honda and Toyota, and some Nissans. still waiting to see the new Mazdaspeed3 though, and a proper 2 seater, rwd sports car.

I like this better, no offense to Porsche lovers, great looking Mazda's btw. Technology wise, i'm liking the upcoming BMW diesels more and more, esthetically, well.. room for improvements.
