Theme Tuesdays are getting difficult, I’m not complaining don’t get me wrong, but finding new vehicle to post after seven years is a bit of a challenge. Especially since of late I like to keep things a little a-typical to keep things fresh.
For today’s selection I’ve settled on the Mazda Eunos Cosmo, a car that before this year I had never seen in person.
For those not familar the Cosmo is a grand tourer Mazda produced from ’67 to 95. It was a rotary powered car that was known for its luxury and technological features more than blazing speed.
A Japanese market vehicle these cars are rare birds in North America but more than deserving of a Theme Tuesday.
Note: apologies for the small sizes and lack of credit for many of these photos, several came from long since abandoned forums/forum threads.
The 929 and the Cosmo are pretty closely related so perhaps I should look at the 929 for a Theme Tuesday in the not so distant future?
Love to see some 929s, maybe include it’s successor: the Xedos 9 and it’s smaller brother the Xedos 6. That is if you can find them modified, those models were rare even when new.
I’ve actually never heard of the xedos 9 or 6!
Xedos was Mazda’s luxury brand in the 90s, at least in Europe but I think it never was really successful.
My coworker at the time had a 94 xedos 6, all I remember was that it had a V6 and leather interior.
I’m assuming it uses the 626 / mazda 6 platform
That modified 1st gen Cosmos….
