Nissan working on a smaller sports car to sit below 370Z

Nissan is developing a brand new smaller sports car which will be slotted below the 370Z.

Nissan is developing a brand new smaller sports car which will be slotted below the 370Z.

In an interview given to Car & Driver in Detroit at NAIAS, Nissan's vice president Andy Palmer said a new smaller sports car is in the works and will be that type of car "you love it or hate it." He didn't say much else except for the fact a concept previewing the production model will be unveiled within a year.

Sitting beneath the GT-R and the 370Z, this new sports car will not be a Subaru BRZ / Toyota GT 86 / Scion FR-S rival as it will take a more youth-oriented approach much like the Juke. Since Palmer said it will be a "guilt-free" car, we can only assume he meant some form of electrification.
