The Mazda RX-7 has gone down in history as one of the great JDM classics featuring a tiny displacement rotary engine that pushes out all those lovely "Braaap Braaap Braaap" noises we all know and love! But aside from the most popular RX-7, the FD RX-7, we had its older brother, the Mazda FC RX-7 which, to your surprise, wasn't even a JDM car!
Just because a car is Japanese doesn't necessarily make it JDM, as in made for the Japanese Domestic Market. The Mazda FC RX-7 was specifically designed to be a rival to the Porsche 944 and 928 which offered a fantastic driving experience at a fraction of the price.
