(AN) recently interviewed Mazda CEO Masamichi Kogai. The interview covered a variety of topics, but the one we’re most interested in highlighting is, of course, a possible successor to the RX-8. In case you haven’t been paying attention, talk of such a car was reignited after the RX-Vision concept debuted at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show last year. Since then every outlet in the world (including us) has been trying to figure out if Mazda indeed planned to relaunch a rotary-powered sports car. According to Kogai, it ain’t happening.
