The only reason people like the Rx7 is because it had a unique engine and it was cheap for what it was.

But in all fairness. It wasn't the best sports car of the 90's. Not by a long shot.

There are a ton of cars far better than the Rx7. At best it's a cult classic.

My votes goes for the Speed 12. Faster 0-60 than the F1. Looked great, and head style. Even if it tried to kill you whenever you touched the throttle.

Yes the Rx7 was slow for what it was trying to be.

No the Viper can't turn, It's not a TVR, so don't act like it is one. Vipers can't turn.

Objectively speaking. A Porsche 996 was better than an Rx7 and pretty much anything else in this thread. Perfect mix of, speed, not to cheap, not to expensive, handling, fun factor, uniqueness in it's engine layout and looks.

Objectively, taking all factors into account. It's true.

But we are saying that it seems the 3 or 4 edge lords that are obsessed with the Rx7 on these boards are clearly autistic for over zealously acting like the car is without fault and should be crowned best of all.

Because being honest with ourselves here. Yeah a Wankel is an interesting engine, but honestly, it doesn't make a car special.
