It always seems to me that they have the best ingredients but would rather try something even more nuts like a miller cycle sedan, than to just put two doritos togethe from of two seats and mail it from japan with love.

Rotary would have less to move around so more MPG, they could even run a safer 200hp for reliability and be 50HP up over the 4-banger. Anyone here done this and regretted it? Mazda surely tried..why did they not?Any thoughts on the engineering reasoning behind it? Is it all marketing fault?
