As it’s fashionable these days, Mazda takes to Twitter to announce they are working on new rotary-engines models.

This Twitter thing is a perfect tool for PR people who don’t’ feel like coming up with a whole press release just to announce a simple plan! So Mazda PR just tweeted a few lines that they are “zealously working on new models to house the next-generation rotary engine.”

Mazda RX-8, the last of rotary-engined cars by the Japanese car maker, is being gradually killed off and will be completely out of the game by summer 2012. Some Mazda official had commented before that his company is not considering a replacement. But this tweet certainly begs to differ.

So, will Mazda make a new Wankel? We couldn’t care less to be honest. As long as they come up with a new sportscar that drives as well as the RX-8, that’s fine by us. Eeven if it runs of jelly!
