Fast Facts:
  • This is the first year of the Turbo, which was 25% more powerful than the N/A models. There’s debate on where the “II” came from – most say it’s referring to the 2nd generation RX-7 that it appears on. It may also refer to the fact that this is a two-stage twin scroll turbocharger that functions as “two turbos in one” (Mazda literature): the small primary chamber is used to eliminate turbo lag at low RPM. At 3500 RPM, the larger secondary chamber is opened, providing max boost and power
  • On rotary engines, the exhaust ports open far quicker than the exhaust valves on conventional engines. This means the exhaust gasses escape at a faster rate in a rotary – great for a turbo setup
  • Turbo models received more than just a turbocharger. An air-to-air intercooler is included (connected to its own “ram air” hood scoop) and other items such as a limited slip differential, stiffer suspension, and bigger wheels and tires were all part of the package
  • The RX-7 was light, weighing in as little as 2700 lbs. However, it was a thirsty car, managing less than 17 MPG
  • This generation (FC) came with passive rear steering (known as Dynamic Tracking Suspension) – a highly advanced design for its time. This is a passively active system that reacts to acceleration, braking, and cornering forces (similar to a rear wheel steering system) and could adjust toe accordingly
  • The setup incorporated unique toe control hubs that could induce a small degree of toe change under cornering loads. A slight amount of toe-out was allowed under normal driving, which allows for easy and quick rotation of the rear. Heavy cornering, on the other hand, would trigger a slight toe-in (at around 0.5g or more). Toe-in allows for a more stable rear under heavier cornering forces
Key Model Year Changes:
  • First year of the Turbo model (FC generation)
  • The following year (1988) was the first year of the Series II, which came with minor exterior updates (such as the rear lights going from the 4 bulb matrix on each side to the classic looking round lights). Other external revisions include a new front bumper and body-colored rubber moldings. Turbo models receive a slight bump to 200HP and a new rear spoiler
