I am interested in seeing what comes out of mazdasR&D in the next 2 years. Next year with sales of the 6 and 3 cx5 blowing up the market, they need to take the brand to that next level. Even if it doesnt say speed, everyone will know shit its the speedversion I am getting a badge off ebay. Mazda has a great track car MX-5 the new look is in line with the rest of the mazda lineup. SEXY. Now they need to bring an AWD platform, which is doable as you can put AWD on the CX-5. If they can translate the power correctly from the skyG or D to an awd platform they are now competing for that HOTHATCH market. That market share slimmer tends to pull people in, if it is a proven beast people buy it. At this point we see a mx-5 and speed3 variants. I forsee the next mazda innovation to be a spin off of mazda heritage. Rotary. Yes i said it. Which if dont incorrectly will end MAZDAROTARY for good. They are already balking at continuing development due to the costs. They are making a hybrid rotary 2 for Japan. If they were to create a hybrid rotary for the US, you could see a car shoot off the line then just redline. No lag, with compensation from powerband/low torque. If all that goes swimmingly while still creating family FUN drivers. We may see a true speed4doorsedan.
