My first thought when I saw an rotary powered 968 was, what sort of abomination is this? A few gin and tonics later (it was, after all, well past noon) and the idea started to seem less objectionable. Why shouldn't a vehicle with such an elegant design have exotic spinning bits under the hood.

The original 3.0 liter inline-4 (rated at 240 horsepower) has been thrown asunder for a nice custom build 4-port Mazda 13B from a 2nd generation RX-7. The twin rotor 1.3 liter spinner would have put out 160 horsepower when new, but now it has been given a "street port" and should
On the inside it will be difficult to tell that this 968 is Mazda powered...but the funny part is how much of a full circle this car has created. The FC generation RX-7 was heavily influenced by the original 924 and dimensionally very similar...so to have that RX-7 engine in a Porsche descended from the 924 is extremely ironic.
