Not really... Really helps that rotary cars all look pretty good.

Sometimes RX-8 gets shit on by RX-7 owners a bit for the looks and the fact it's NA, but if an RX-8 is as inpractical as an RX-7, I wouldn't even have considered it.
Not really. It gets hate for being a shitty engine compared to the REW. I've never once heard an rx7 owner rag on it for it's looks.

I usually don't hate on people's cars. It' the owners who I usually don't like because they can be doucebags sometimes..

Instagram has merely replaced... What's that old site called, where people would post their builds and car s? It was mostly janky stuff from like middle of nowhere but soft through the mud and you get some gems. What was the site called!!!

Pretty sure I have seen 7 owners bash 8 for its looks.

And turbocharging aside, RENESIS is great. Comparing a turbocharged engine and NA engine of the same displacement is pretty dumb, and RENESIS is a lot more powerful compared to older NA rotaries. Remember, emission standards are a lot stricter when 8 starts rolling around, so it's really understandable when they had to use side exhaust ports.

Seriously, don't get a 04 or 05 RX-8 AT, as they use a less powerful version of the RENESIS(4 ports versus 6 ports of the MT) that's more prone to failure. Later years use the same 6-port engine MT RX-8s use.

AT RX-8 wouldn't get as much hate/laughter, had the early years not used the watered-down engine, can rev as high as MT, and not lose 20 horsepower with the same engine.
