Mazda6 skyactiv-d concept car SEMAWhile the cars to look forward to at this year's SEMA show in Las Vegas are starting to stack up pretty high – Ford alone is bringing 57 vehicles – we hadn't gotten word about what Mazda was up to before now. A shadowy digital figure has reached out to the Autoblog staff, providing us with four tantalizing images of SEMA showcar renderings, though without any substantive information to go with them.

We don't have any idea what is under the hood or behind the wheels of this foursome of two Mazda6s and two Mazda3s (hatch and sedan), but we can say that we like the way the company's lauded styling for all models is wearing the amped up wheels and paint schemes.

The Mazda3 hatchback seen here seems to be making overt overtures to the world of motorsport, with a lowered front splitter, super low-profile tires on massive wheels, and a number 3 writ large on the bodyside. The Mazda3 sedan gets a similar treatment without the numeration.

Mazda clearly isn't done telling the performance story for its impending Mazda6 Skyactiv-D diesel, either. The gray over black sedan is wearing a "CS6 Diesel" marking on its door, and could perhaps be a toned down version of the company's Skyactiv-D racecar. Look for more information about the SEMA cars on the Mazda stand, when we have it.

      Did Mazda make some major moves in design department because lately they are on a roll. One amazing looking product after another.

      I hope this means the Mazdaspeed3 and maybe even another Mazdaspeed6 are in our future! Love those cars, and the new models already look awesome in their standard form. Let's see some more "go" with that "show!"

      Anyone else see a lot of Tesla Model S lines in the red model?

      That front lip on the 6 is not a good look. It only accentuates what's already a HUGE overhang. The 6 is the only sedan I've seen that has A, B, C, D, E and F pillars. What a mess.

        You don't know how to count and/or you don't know what a pillar is.

      Wheels on the 6 are too small, looks dorky.

      I really like the new Mazda 3 design, but they certainly need to come up with the 3-door version of it soon, to be a valid consideration for me.

          There are a hand full of 3 door hatches in the United States. There should be plenty more options but there are not.

        I'd prefer a 3 door version as well. The options should exist. There are still buyers out there that only want 3 door hatches.
