Mazda Cosmo 1990 - 1995
A truly modern Eunos Cosmo (roughly based on the 1985 MX-03 concept car) started production in 1990 on the new JC platform. The Eunos Cosmo was the top-line touring flagship of the Eunos luxury channel. It is the only Mazda to use a triple-rotor engine. The car was a 2+2 coupe and was loaded with power amenities. An electronically controlled 4-speed automatic transmission was mandatory.
Two engines were available, the twin turbo 13B-REW and the 20B-REW. The triple rotor 20B had two liters (1962 cc) of displacement, which is quite large for a rotary powerplant. It produced 300 hp (224 kW) and 300 ft·lbf (402 N·m) with twin turbochargers. The JC series Cosmo set several firsts in Automotive history. Its 13B-REW + 20B-REW engines were the first series production twin sequential turbo systems to be offered for sale. The better known FD RX-7 didn't show its 13B-REW engine until early 1992.
This 4th generation JC Cosmo was way ahead of its time electronically as well (1990) by being the first production car with Car Control System, a CRT colour touch-screen controlling climate control, mobile phone, GPS car navigation, NTSC TV, radio and CD-Player. The first similar systems appeared 2001 on the BMW 7-Series (iDrive).
The Cosmo was manufactured from FEB-90 until SEP-95 for a total of 8875 sales.
