Nissan doesn't have the best track record when it comes to putting concepts into production, so it comes as little surprise that the extreme BladeGlider concept looks like it's dead in the water.

Nissan doesn't have the best track record when it comes to putting concepts into production, so it comes as little surprise that the extreme BladeGlider concept looks like it's dead in the water.

While executives have previously said a production model was in their "mid-term plan," that appears to have changed as Nissan Chief Planning Officer Philippe Klein has told Autocar it's not a priority.  Klein went on to say a production model is "still on the table" but "at the end of the day it has to make sense to the company."  

As we have previously reported, the BladeGlider concept was introduced at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show and featured a unique Delta wing shape that echoed the ZEOD RC.  The concept also had a McLaren F1-inspired 1+2 seating arrangement and was billed as having the "potential to be the best handling production car in the world."
