The Mazda 787B was a prototype racing car built for the 24 hours of Le Mans auto race, replacing the 767. It used a 4-rotor 26B Wankel engine which produced over 700 hp (522 kW). The 787B's 1991 win at Le Mans was historic in two ways: It marked the first (and only) victory for a Japanese manufacturer, and the first (and only) overall victory for a car powered by a Wankel rotary engine.
The 787B was built in Britain and was designed by Englishman Nigel Stroud. Three 787B's were entered for the 1991 event, placing first, sixth, and eighth.
The Mazda RX-7 (also called the Savanna and Efini RX-7) was a sports car that began production in 1978. The original RX-7 competed in the affordable sports car segment with the likes of the Datsun/Nissan 280Z. The styling was inspired by the Lotus Elan 2+2. It featured a unique twin-rotor Wankel rotary engine and a sporty front-midship, rear wheel drive layout, making it well balanced and appropriate for racing. The RX-7 was a direct replacement for the RX-3 (both were sold in Japan as the Savanna) and subsequently replaced all other Mazda rotary cars with the exception of the Cosmo.
The Mazda Atenza or Mazda6 is a midsize car from the Japanese carmaker Mazda. Replacing the Capella/626, the Atenza/Mazda6 has sold over one million units worldwide since its introduction, making it the fastest Mazda vehicle to reach the one million mark.
The Mazda Millenia was originally planned as the smaller of two luxury cars for Mazda's luxury brand, Amati. As Mazda's dwindling finances no longer permitted the launch of the Amati brand, the Millenia was launched in the autumn of 1993 in Europe (as the Xedos9) and Japan (as the Eunos 800) under the Mazda brand. The car was launched in the US in 1995 as the Millenia, and replaced the 929 as Mazda's top-line car.
The Mazda RX-3 was an automobile sold in the 1970s. It was intended to be smaller and sportier than its brother, the RX-2/Capella Rotary. It was available from September, 1971 through 1978 in coupe, sedan, and station wagon forms. It was based on the compact Mazda Familia and was sold in Japan as the Mazda Savanna. Sold from 1972 through 1978 in the United States, the RX-3 was extremely successful.
