*snicker*. I'll believe the problems with seal and rotor tip degradation were overcome AFTER the new engine has been on the road more than a few years. This is just marketing hype.
Anyway, the rotary engine simply doesn't get you a big overall advantage over piston engines. Mazda uses the design as a product differentiator, mainly.

The "Wankel" engine (NSU's) is licensed to Mazda and is re-appearing in the new Mazda RX-8. Comprex compressors: " . ..pressure-wave supercharging (trade name: Comprex) applies exhaust pressure directly against intake air within the honeycomb-like passages of a rotating drum. A belt from the crankshaft is used to spin the drum. Opel and Mazda both used the Comprex approach for diesel models not imported to the United States." Useful inventions. Use Google. Marketplace competition usually gives the win to the simplest, cheapest, most-reliable and most robust ideas. If one (or more) of these criteria isn't met .. . it falls into the realm of "exotica" . .. an unsolved problem looking for a solution. As James Burke describes in his many books (e.g. "Connections"), a "good idea" often finds adoption in a completely different application. Often, we can't live long enough to connect the dots .. .
