They say less is more. But who are they? Does that apply to torque from an internal combustion engine? And have they ever driven a Mazda RX-8? With 232 horsepower the 6-port Renesis has a decent amount of thrust at redline, but with only 159 ft-lbs of torque, this isn’t exactly a tractor…but if you like your engines to be piston-free…the RX-8 was the last hurrah for Wankel’s legendary rotary and they aren’t getting any younger. Find this 2005 Mazda RX-8 offered for $5500 in Santa Clarita, CA via craigslist.
