    Nissan IDx Concepts Preview a Scion FR-S Rival | AutoGuide.com News
    Nissan is previewing a possible future rival for the Scion FR-S with the iDx concept unveiled today at the Tokyo Motor Show.


    Built for Gen Y, or what Nissan calls “digital natives”, two different versions of the same car point towards two unique audiences. The first is the IDx Freeflow concept, built for lifestyle buyers, while the second is the iDx NISMO designed for those in search of a unique and affordable sports car.

    In many ways its a modern-era 240SX, though with styling cues that are unmistakably those of the Datsun 510. Dimensionally the cars are roughly 13.5 feet long by 5.7 feet wide by 4.3 feet tall.

    The IDx NISMO borrows from classic Nissan models and features a unique reverse-slanted nose and aggressive side exit exhaust pipes. Racing heritage is undeniable in the car with plenty of motorsports styled body panels and big 19-inch wheels. In essence, it looks straight out of a racing video game.

    Powering the car is a turbocharged 1.6-liter direct injection 4-cylidner mated to a CVT with a 6-speed manual shift mode and what Nissan calls “synchronized rev control.”

    Assumedly a rear-wheel drive sports car, Nissan has not explicitly said as much.

    On the more conservative side is the IDx Freeflow that forms the basis of the more extreme NISMO model with a unique floating roof design but with otherwise simple boxy shape and Spartan interior.

    Nissan says this model, should it see production, would be powered by an engine sized from 1.2 to 1.5-liters and using a CVT.

    As for the odd name, the “ID” stands for “identification” which Nissan says relates, “to the things all individuals relate to on a personal level in a car,” while the “x” is the variable, “representing the new values and dreams born through communication.”

    Stopping just short of confirming the cars for production, as sign of just how serious Nissan is about its new sports car concepts, in a release it says both cars, “could have real applications in the near future.”

    This..on both counts. I love the way it looks. Keep it light, put a great engine in it, and a true manual, and I'd be a fan.

    The white one with the 80 on the side actually doesn't look too bad...

    You guys are restoring my faith in people. I posted this on another forum (a tiburon forum) and they all hate it. "Brick on wheels" "looks like a camaro and a mustang had sex"

    ^Exactly...But looks too much like a challenger, probably because those old cars were designed after american muscle. It's nice throwback for the old Celicas, Skylines, and Datsuns. I wouldn't buy it though.

    Reminds me of the 510's that would always whoop my AWD cars in Forza when drag racing.
