Rotary Coterie

On this day in 1967, sales began for the Mazda Cosmo Sport, aka Planet Earth’s first mass-produced rotary engine. Okay, so mass production is a relative term, with 1,519 hand built cars rolling out Hiroshima.

Nevertheless the car did put Mazda on the path of rotary R&D and 40 years onward, after numerous sports coupes, luxury sedans, the Le Mans winning 787B, hydrogen-powered concepts and even buses, the company is celebrating the momentous event.
