A lift-back coupe with pop-up headlights and a rotary engine?

Behave BF, it's as cool a cucumber.

Cool. I love it's lightness and subtlety. Admittedly there are a few design cues lifted off other marque's but it's very cohesive overall.

A lot of stolen ideas as Jim says but it worked for the 240Z and latterly the MX5 so why not?

Looks nice, interesting drivetrain, I think it's worthy of cool.

I never had a mate who owned one (or indeed a mate) but this too was a on the fence thing, it seems I just fell off on the cool side

Correct. It's not terrible, it's just a bit 'meh' / there's not enough cool about it, particularly the examples in the photos above.
The 'FD' is probably the RX7 shape I like the best, but even that's not really cool in stock form let alone once the boyracers modify it.

Me too. Mk3's are nice but I'm finding it hard to find anything cool about RX's

Drove a late model RX8 a couple of years ago (on track and on the road) and I thought that was an awesome drive. Handled beautifully and with a Red Line to 9000rpm Cool though? Not sure Let me get back to you on this!
