Is Mazda cooking up a new coupe for its lineup? It’s been discovered that Mazda recently trademarked the MX-6 name with the Japanese Patent Office in October, but it’s not yet known is a new MX coupe is actually coming.

Mazda RX Vision Concept

AutoGuide discovered the trademark, which lists that it could be used for “automobiles and parts and accessories thereof.” While the MX-6 trademark doesn’t necessarily mean that Mazda is working on a new sports car, it could be something that it needs as it tries to position it self as a more premium alternative to Honda and Toyota.

Sadly Mazda also recently confirmed that it has no plans for a new rotary-powered sports car, so if the Mazda MX-6 is coming, it will be powered by a traditional engine. Lets hope that it does get some inspiration from the RX Vision Concept.

Stay tuned.
