Dodge and Chrysler could have been reskinned Mazdas with the Dart and 200 being 3 and 6 respectively. That move would have been lucrative for both companies.

But Mazda is its own kind of stupid too. The Miata desperately needs a 300 horsepower option and they won't do it because of some zen-garden bull crap about balance. The Fiata should have been an Alfa Spider with a 300 horsepower turbo 4.

Mazda will disappear into Toyota and be forever will Subaru in time.
Yeah I agree *shock*

Also I have a feeling that this inline 6 has been developed alongside and is an extension of the SkyActiv X EDIT: I found a part where they say exactly this.

I'm predicting it being a 3.0 in size...maybe 3.7 at absolute max.
