Mazda RX-7 Se­ries 1-5

Unique Cars - - MARKET -

This year marks 40 years since the first RX7 was re­leased and what a dif­fer­ence it made to the sporty coupe mar­ket. To be­gin with it made Mazda a con­tender for in­ter­na­tional mo­tor-sport glory and pro­vided a plat­form to have a go at Porsche in road-car sales. That in­tent can be clearly seen in the shape and con­fig­u­ra­tion of Se­ries 4 and 5 RX7s, es­pe­cially the turbo-en­gined cars. These when new and to­day cost a lot less than Porsche’s 944 Turbo and less to run as well. De­mand for re­ally good Se­ries 1-3 cars and es­pe­cially the later Lim­ited ver­sions are push­ing av­er­age val­ues of pre-1986 RX-7s past $20,000 and oc­ca­sion­ally to $40,000.

RX7 Se­ries 1-2 $21,020 [19] RX7 Se­ries 3 $21,955 [7] RX7 Ser. 4-5 $9800 [5] RX7 Ser. 4-5 Conv. $15,055 [9] RX7 Ser. 4-5 Turbo $17,010 [15]
