Nissan IDx Concepts: Coming Soon to Showrooms

Concepts

Some retro goodness will soon give the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ a hard time.

Having had their premiere last month at the Tokyo Motor Show, the Nissan IDx concepts are a couple rear-wheel-drive coupes that satisfied many fans of the brand. We heard rumors that Nissan had a couple of cool surprises in the pipeline and those concepts clearly fit the bill. Now comes word, although not official, that Nissan is planning to go ahead with a production version. Some may think the IDx bears a strong resemblance to the old Datsun 510, and that was no mistake.

The automaker is clearly not afraid to explore new niches in order to attract new buyers and bring back some old ones. The IDx concepts, the road going Freeflow and track friendly Nismo, would likely be powered by either a 1.2-, 1.5- or 1.6-liter turbo engine and would also be highly customizable. Simply put: a tuner’s dream. A CVT would also be likely. Although the upcoming next-gen Z car will compete against the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ, Nissan wants the IDx to appeal to an even younger crowd; a company exec even called the former two "mid-life crisis cars." Nissan hasn’t indicated a potential production start date, but a good guess would see the IDx on the road in about four years.
