About Mazda

The company had successes with its rotary engine-powered vehicles (which boast ample amounts of power and are lightweight) in the 1960s.

When a rotary (or Wankel) engine was paired up with a small pickup truck by Mazda they created a sought-after vehicle great for the mountainous Japanese terrain.

In the 1970s the Mazda Motor Corporation formed a partnership with the Ford car company that lasted until 2015, trading shares and commercial/industrial information between the 2 companies.

Over the years several models released by Mazda stood out among the rest, such as the MX-5 (the most mass-produced sports car in the world) and the RX-8 which took the rotary engine to new extremes of performance.
