Talking about 2019 Mazda RX-9 could be tricky because the manufacturer has not confirmed this model yet, but as we heard on Tokyo Auto Show, it could be a completely new model with the old rotary engine. As the rotary engine is a symbol of Mazda we were curious if they will make something like those old models with this type of engine today. According to rumors, it could be a model with retractable top, long front end, and very short rear end, almost like other cars in the class, but with unique shape and design of Mazda.
The shape and design of 2019 Mazda RX-9 should not be a surprise as it is a part of the already known RX-Vision showed at Tokyo Auto Show in 2015. That design includes a long front end with modernized LED lights and rounded hood with some curves and lines. The rear end is much shorter with small rounded LED lights and two exhausts. Lower and sloped roof supports the look of sportiness in the modernly designed car.
The inside of 2019 Mazda RX-9 is a proof of luxury and elegance, wrapped in high-quality black leather with details in red and chromatic details. Besides that, there are no many details and commands.
Not only that 2019 Mazda RX-9 uses the new rotary engine, but this vehicle has a special layout for 180 degrees turned from the usual applications. The special switch turns the exhaust on the top of the powerplant for easier packaging of the exhaust manifold and the presumed turbocharger. This engine should have 400 horsepower, but thanks to the lightweight it is much stronger and faster than many engines on the market nowadays. Together with the rear-wheel driving system, RX-9 is part of the large family of strong and fast sporty cars on the market we know for now.

Even though there are no official confirmations of this news, we are sure that 2019 Mazda RX-9 will be on the market very soon. That will be the great celebration of 50th years of Mazda Cosmo model also on Tokyo Auto Show. As Mazda CEO Masamichi Kogai said, there will be much news like this from Mazda in years to come, and rotary engines are something expected in Mazda models. However, the main surprise is the price that starts from $77,000 and goes up to $88,000, which means that this car will be much cheaper than cars in this class, like Acura NSX and Nissan GT-R, which prices have six numbers.
