Nissan Will Build IDx Coupe, But With Styling Changes
If you were hoping for a production version of the Nissan IDx concept — we’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is Nissan is actually putting the IDx into production (contradicting previous rumors); the bad news is that it's going to lose a few of its charming retro cues along the way. According to Motoring, Nissan’s Toyobaru rival will have a more modern, aggressive look to match the rest of the Nissan lineup. Some are saying that it will resemble more closely the sports sedan concept rather than the IDx concept. PHOTOS: See More of the 2013 Nissan IDx Nismo Concept
Other new details include the addition of a 2.0-liter engine in place of the originally planned 1.6, and that the IDx will sit on the platform of the next-gen Z car. It’s also likely that it's going to have somewhere near 180 horsepower, but will be lighter than the current FR-S/BRZ.
That's good news for all you Nissan faithful. Let’s just hope it doesn’t lose too much personality when it hits the production line.
