Nissan has introduced today in Tokyo the retro-flavored IDx Freeflow and IDx Nismo concepts. Both of them have a classic Skyline-inspired design but with a hi-tech twist, especially inside their futuristic cabins.

The IDx Freeflow is a compact concept measuring about 4.1 meters in length, 1.7 meters in width and 1.3 meters in height. It adopts a floating roof and sits on 18-inch chrome alloys while the exterior paint is a combination of white and flax (light brown). Under the hood it is envisioned with a variety of 1.2- to 1.5-liter gasoline engines coupled to a CVT.

As for the IDx Nismo, it has the same length and height as the Freeflow but the width has increased to 1.8 meters. It rides on larger 19-inch alloys shod in 225/40 tires and benefits from a sporty body kit and a race-inspired interior with many metal surfaces.

Both of them were made simply for conceptual purposes and won't get a direct production derivative. However, with the IDx duo Nissan could be hinting at a RWD competitor for the Toyota GT 86 / Subaru BRZ / Scion FR-S trio.
