I like the over all looks of the RX8 however the addidtional doors for the rear passengers looks odd. I like the traditional two door Mazdas Like the Rx7.

I tell ya what....watching Drag Racing in HD is something to behold. When seen with HD and a really good Surround Sound system....WOW!!!

Especially when a car grenades the engine at the end of a run.
