The 5 Best Used Japanese Sports Cars Aug 3, 2017 by Jet (Driver Weekly)
2012 Mazda RX-8
The 2012 Mazda RX-8 is a unique used Japanese sports car thanks to its rotary engine instead of the piston-driven units you find on nearly every other production model. This engine gives you 232 horsepower with a torque of 152 pound-feet and can work with a six-speed manual to deliver that sporty feel.
To make it stand out even more, the RX-8 has fun rear-hinged doors so your passengers can easily get into the rear seats. When driving, you will appreciate the light chassis that makes tackling twisting roads fun. If you like the idea of a sports car with a unique rotary engine, this is the model to go with, as the RX-8 was discontinued after the 2012 model year.
