Mazda RX-7 Series 6-8/RX8/Cosmo

Japanese-spec RX-7s arriving in droves for the past 10 years seem to be silently consuming any surviving, Aussie-delivered Series 6 or 7 cars. Not really, but apart from intra-species cannibalism it is hard to explain the declining numbers of 1992-97 RX-7s, even though values remain pretty strong.

The money being sought for S6-7 and S8 cars is similar however the early cars offer better long-term prospects. Keen and wealthy collectors might prefer an Australia-only SP at over $100,000 or an import Type R Spirit in the $70-80Ks.

For a rotary that costs a lot less than an RX-7 and is more practical look for an RX-8 at under $10,000 or even the very scarce, triple-rotor Cosmo 20B coupe.
