The October 14th issue of Autoweek had a short article about how the RX-8 has reached production of the 100,000th car after 18 months production, yet has achieved sales of (only) 29,000 cars in the US and 23,000 cars in Japan. That leaves a lot of cars on the boat, cars sold in Europe, and/or cars sold in Mexico and Canada. I know that the Z achieved 60,000 sales in North America 18 months in, but does anyone know what the comparative production total was at that time? Be interested to see the comparison. In Texas, I do not see that many RX-8s and I suspect sales are "poor" by comparison to the Z.
