1993 Mazda rx-7 concept model

Second Floor - Industry

The third-generation Mazda RX-7 was powered by the most highly developed Wankel-rotary engine ever installed in a production car. Believing that such advanced engineering called for equally advanced styling, Mazda initiated an internal design competition among its studios in Hiroshima and Yokohama, Japan and Irvine, California. This model of the winning design was created by Art Center College of Design graduate Wu-Huang Chin at the Mazda Design Center in Irvine, one of the first studios established in Southern California by a Japanese automaker.
