16 Reasons to Love a Rotary

The next generation rotary engine will soon be upon us. Known as the 16x, this engine will be larger than previous production rotary engines, 300cc's more. The current engine in the RX8 is Renesis 13b which has the displacement of ~1300cc. The 13b has been Mazda's workhorse engine for 30 years. The new 16x engine displaces a whopping 1600cc, just as big a 4AG and B16. But if you know rotaries, the power is going to be way more than any of those 1600's can produce. I may have to shoehorn one into Corolla. At least I can still say it's 1600cc engine.
