The Mazda RX-9 is a conceptual Japanese mid-engine beast!

Designed to reintroduce the Japanese aesthetic to the racing world and revive its bloodline, the Mazda RX-9 concept by Joseph Robinson celebrates the car company’s legacy, and the imagination of a designer who passionately hopes that Mazda will make its comeback to its sportscar days. The Mazda RX-9, a halo performance vehicle, comes with a hybrid mid-engine setup of an electric motor coupled with its famous Renesis rotary engine.

The RX-9’s oriental roots are clearly visible in its crouching-tiger inspired design, with ground-hugging design, a prominent rear that emulates a tiger’s hindquarters pre-pounce, and a menacing set of headlights that glimmer like jungle cat eyes in the dark. The concept car comes with a dominant shoulder line, aggressive air-intakes, and Mazda’s trademark grille design too!
