How A Rotary Engine Works

This section has a collection articles which demonstrate how a rotary engine works. This gas engine is also referred to as a Wankel Motor because it was designed by a German engineer whose name was Felix Wankel. Currently the rotary engine is being produced only by Mazda, and the most commons cars that use them are the RX-8, and the RX-7. Although the concept of the rotary engine has always remained the same, the RX-8 motor, otherwise known as the RENESIS engine is dramatically different.
