Mazda RX7 Series 1-5 market review from our 2020 Japanese Classic & Performance Car Guide

Lots of early Mazda RX-7s appearing in the market should have dampened values but to date that hasn’t happened. Top examples of Series 1 and 2 cars still exceed $30,000, with Series 3 Limiteds close behind.

The RX-7 shape changed in 1986 and if you want your car to look like a Porsche 944 while spending half the money then find a non-turbo Series 4 or 5. If you want performance without spending more than $30,000, a Series 4 or 5 Turbo makes sense.

These weren’t plentiful in recent months and the money sought for Series 4s is up. Convertible versions were locally sold with non-turbo engines and also can be sourced via Japan with a turbo. Values for both versions sit at around $20,000.

RX-7 Series 1-2 $25,230 [30] 

RX-7 Series 3 $22,865 [11]

RX-7 Series 4-5 $15,900 [5] 

RX-7 Series 4-5 Conv. $21,100 [10]

RX-7 Series 4 Turbo $25,640 [7]
