    Might have made sense in the 70s, but that would have turned out to be a terrible business plan!

    Personally I've never understood the rabid love for the rotary engine! Plus, it sounds like crap!

    GM were going to do their '75 Monza with it, but it kept failing. Only two companies weren't into it, British Leyland and BMW. One had no money and the other had more sense, lol.

    The idea of rotary was that with fewer parts it was going to be cheaper to make, plus it was light and powerful for size, but then the fuel crisis came and no one wanted to know.
