Mazda builds final rotary engine

Mark it down, auto enthusiasts. Mazda built its last rotary engine on Friday, June 22.

By final, we mean the line that assembled Renesis engines for Mazda’s RX-8 sports car was idled, and there are currently no plans to restart its production. Mazda has a long-running history of building Wankel powerplants, and its production of the high-revving engine has seen a few stutters since Mazda put the first dual-rotor Wankel in a production car in 1967.

Of course, it’s always possible that Mazda finds a way to solve – or at least drastically improve – the failings of the Renesis: high fuel consumption and poor emissions. We’ve been hearing about the so-called 16X rotary for years, and we’d love to see it enter production at some point in the not-terribly-distant future.

For now, though, join us in remembering some of Mazda’s past rotary-powered machinery in the image galleries above and below. Even if the world never sees another production rotary, at least it’s been a good ride.
