"the last 13B and Rotary Engine rolls out of the factory"
 
Quote:

A very sad day for all Rotary enthusiasts around the world. Today, after 40 years of production, the last 13B and Rotary Engine rolls out of the factory. Mazda is holding a ceremony on the 13B line today to commemorate the end of an era. Our thanks and appreciation to all of those engineers, craftsman, executives at Mazda who made the Rotary Engine of such a great joy to us for so many decades! Our hope is that Rotary Engine makes a swift come back and our joy is returned. NEVER STOP CHALLENGING MAZDA!

おつかれさまでした

Is Mazda's Rotary Engine Program Dead?

RIP to an engine that runs on magic and Unicorn tears

Vancouver_M5 06-21-2012 06:28 PM

Its gone for now but im sure they'll bring it back in a few yeara

Redlines_Daily 06-21-2012 06:34 PM

that yellow FD is perfect

Great68 06-21-2012 06:54 PM

They brought the 787B out of storage for a lap of lemans last year:


sounds so sex.

CorneringArtist 06-21-2012 07:27 PM

It was a spinning triangle that burned oil, but it was a damn awesome engine. Here's hoping it makes a swift return.

PJ 06-21-2012 09:22 PM

Hopefully they engineer a way to make it more.. efficient? Burns oil.. thirsty engine.. low power output..
Though as inefficient as these engines are, I personally love the sound of them :ahwow:

Yodamaster 06-21-2012 09:36 PM

Not the end, there was a story about them discontinuing the rotary now just to have the money to develop a more reliable and efficient version.

They mentioned that they were going to experiment with the laser ignition system, and try to improve the notoriously leaky seals.

RE-Jo 06-22-2012 12:38 PM

OP you forgot to post the interior photos of that yellow FD

Phil@rise 06-22-2012 12:56 PM

that video should be in the NSFW room cus what I just did watching that video was NSFW!

GLOW 06-22-2012 01:05 PM

that yellow FD :bowjerk:

fliptuner 06-22-2012 02:24 PM

787B has one of the most eargasmic exhaust notes in life.

white_guilt 06-22-2012 08:40 PM

right out of the factory and straight to the repair shop.

death_blossom 06-23-2012 12:03 AM

yah, there is a lot of buzz about the Skyactiv program. Mazda is going to built a LeMann prototype car under Skyactiv based technology too! let's hope they are successful at it, and can start to maybe run a rotary based prototype in the future. :)

Over9K 06-23-2012 09:23 PM

One of the greatest engineered sports car out there.

Apparently they want to do it with Skyactiv Diesel.

Gridlock 06-23-2012 09:49 PM

There is nothing quite like the sound of a rotary mashing parts at 7000RPM(and others even more). I think its the fact that it doesn't even sound like its trying.

SaviorSelf_666 06-24-2012 10:13 AM

Yellow FD's engine bay is too clean!

twitchyzero 06-24-2012 11:01 AM

that 787b clip made me want to wipe the dust off my gran turismo 5 haha

mazda not developing the furai anymore?

TurboFC3S 06-24-2012 03:17 PM

Glad they scrapped the 13b.. They should bring back the 20B Motor in a exotic type car ( Like the Furai)

The day i have the expendable income for a full out 20b swap it will be done :)

Furai: (looks like a damn batmobile!)

Datsun 06-24-2012 08:59 PM
