So I test drove an RX-8 Grand Touring model with my roommate today. He's currently rocking a 92' Prelude and we both really like it but he wants to retire it to the garage before it explodes haha. We found an 04' RX-8 being sold by a private seller in the area for $8500 with about 80K on it.
I didn't snap any pictures, but it's a sweet car. Silver with black leather, factory hide-away navigation, BOSE sound system, and the Renesis Rotary Engine coupled with a six speed manual that puts out about 250hp, give or take.
Call me crazy, but I really liked it! I wanted one really bad back in the day, but I had never gotten to drive one. He's not comfortable with his stick skills yet so I got to test it out. It revs up to 9K, and had quite a bit of pickup to it.
I don't know if he's going to buy it yet, but if he does I'll get some pictures!

I guess im the odd one out, I drove the manual one and I am not a fan of the car I like the feel of it sitting in it and how it hugs you and stuff but the actual drive and how "fast it is" doesn't impress me much
