Speaking of the RX-7:
These two articles are absolutely fantastic. Not only do they perfectly highlight why the FD is so highly revered, they also don't hold back in listing the flaws that would disqualify it for a large number of people. To quote one of the commenters:
"My black 1994 RX-7 was cramped, temperamental, unpredictable (turbo + no TC = sideways), and blew through two turbos and 1 tire and wheel in 9,000 miles.
And it was the best sports car I have ever owned. Period."
