Nissan chief planning officer Andy Palmer has revealed plans to offer "something iconic" to fill the void left by niche models such as the Cube and Murano CrossCabriolet.

Speaking to Automotive News, Palmer said the company wouldn't abandon quirky styling following dismal sales of the aforementioned models. Instead, he believes the company needs a real head tuner to showcase their styling and technology chops.

Palmer declined to go into specifics but told the publication "We will morph this space in our portfolio into something iconic."

That's not much to go on but Nissan has previously hinted the BladeGlider concept could be green-lighted and become the "best handling production car in the world."
