    Its been over a year since we last reported on Mazda's rotary engine plans. At last check, Mazda was hard at work on it. A new report from Autoblog says the next rotary engine, named 16X is coming very soon.

    An insider told Autoblog that the 16X rotary engine will be coming within the next two years in a new model. The insider also said the 16X would be addressing many of the concerns that have plagued rotary engines before.

    "The key to both higher torque and better fuel consumption, is creating a longer stroke engine."

    Okay, this is a rotary engine we are talking about with a triangle rotor and a unique camshaft. How do you determine a long stroke?

    "By the path of travel within the combustion space dictated by the engineers," said the insider.
