Mazda CEO Officially Ends Speculation Of RX Revival test 1-1

In the automotive industry, there are numerous rumors that simply refuse to be refuted or killed. Indeed, prior to the Nissan GT-R unveiling, speculation swirled for years about its development, and the upcoming NSX was shrouded in its own version of secrecy and rumors before its formal debut as a concept several years later. However, unlike those two cases of speculation that eventually bore the fruit of driving goodness, fans of the iconic Mazda RX sports car, who were hoping for a revival of the rotary-powered wonder to replace the RX-8, will be disappointed to hear that no such model is in the works and that the idea appears to have been shevled for the long term.

Quick Look: 2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro test 1-1

Halo cars are designed to show buyers what a particular car company is capable of, thereby garnering attention for the brand and driving sales of regular production models. Halo trucks work the same way, as rigs like the 2015 Ford F-150 Raptor and 2015 Ram Power Wagon give truck buyers something cool to lust after, while they order their budget-friendly F-150 XLT or Ram 1500 EcoDiesel.

Cars were slathered in chrome, and luxury still meant a vinyl roof and wire hubcaps. Not much had really changed since Ike left office; then Buick came along and changed everything.

Say hello to the future. Say hello to the Buick Grand National...
