Mazda has stated if they do build another RX, it would be on a stiffened version of the Miata platform, so it will not need a tonne of power. Even if they have to fatten it up by 200 - 300 lbs (extra chassis bracing, bigger wheels and brakes, stronger gears, thicker driveshaft, etc.), it should be plenty fast at that weight with 250 - 300 horsepower.
