Mazda RX-7 Series 2 Apparel and Accessories by Legend Lines
The Mazda RX-7 received a styling update for 1986 for its Second Generation. It was now a 2+2 hatchback with an 'occasional' rear seats. Power was still from the Wankel rotary engine producing nearly 150 horsepower and with the optional turbocharger installed, that figure rose to 182 horsepower. Still known as the Mazda Savanna RX-7 in Japan, featured a complete restyling which was reminiscent of the Porsche 924 and 944. Mazda's stylists, led by Chief Project Engineer Akio Uchiyama focused on the Porsche 924 for their inspiration in designing the Mazda because the new car was being designed primarily for the American market, where the majority of first-generation of the RX-7 models had been sold. The Porsche 944 was selling particularly well at the time and provided clues as to what sports-car enthusiasts might find compelling in future RX-7 styling and equipment.
