The Mazda 323 GTX is a casual racing car inspired by racing cars before Evo and WRX popularized the concept in the US. In the 1980s, Mazda was deeply involved in motorsport from Le Mans to Group A. The automaker’s Group A spot was the GTX 323 and, of course, that meant work. they have a special similarity.
In just two short years from 1988 to 1989, the United States had only 1,243 cars of this type. There’s a turbocharged 1.6-liter four under the hood that delivers 132 horsepower to all four wheels through a manual transmission. That’s a healthy increase over the maximum 103 horsepower found in the standard 323, and these horsepower are known to be able to produce more power with a tone and boost.
It looks like these haven’t reached collector status yet, and that means you can still get them on the cheap. Its $7,500 on Facebook Marketplace in Elburn, Illinois with 74,000 miles.
