Mine hasn't been delivered yet, but I expect it to be the latter part of August or the first part of September.
It is a 6-speed and is velocity red mica with black and red leather interior. I ordered it with the Grand Touring Package and paid $31,100 for it.

Oh, if only we weren't building a house now!

Let's get our priorities straight....a place to sleep? Or, the RX8?
#6 of 93 I already have a place to sleep.

It's mostly an upgrade for the spouse. I'm getting a second garage and some space for a workshop out of the deal though.
I'll get the house done first. I'd like someplace for my second car to nest out of the cold.
#7 of 93 Just got my RX8

Metalic Silver and fully loaded with navigation. Happy man with a fun car. This car is awesome. Great handling, smooth delivery, adequate power and many many more. Used to drive a Mecerdes SUV but now feel alive in a daily communte. Cheers!

Well, I've had mine for almost a month now.
Titanium, grand touring package, 6sp
installed the MP3 player, and vent trim
I have about 1100 miles on it, and I'm really enjoying this car.

What's your average MPG around town and highway driving ?

I've followed this car for awhile now and actually grew impatient and purchased an Envoy in May...while I love the Envoy, I couldn't see passing up the opportunity to test drive the first RX-8 I saw! (bad move!)
Ended up talking the wife into trading in her car for me and letting her drive the Envoy! Both are great vehicles!
Red w/ Grand Touring package, Appearance package,
Spoiler, Nav system and spare tire
I've already put 450 miles on it and have only owned it a week! Just so fun to drive!! Have to clean out my garage now so it has a new home!
Good luck to those looking to buy their new toy!
