The Japanese based automaker Nissan has a pretty good chance of putting the iDX into production in the nearby future, as a report is indicating.
In case you have forgotten all about the two iDX concept cars, don’t worry, because its creator, Nissan, hasn’t and it does have some pretty big plans for their future. According to a recent report, published by the guys from Car Advice, the car manufacturer has a good chance of putting the iDX into production and this will be going after the already available Toyota GT 86 and its derivatives, the Scion FR-S and the Subaru BRZ.
According to our source, who has spoken to Keno Kato, the Nissan corporate vice president, the iDX is “under preparation and development” and the future of the project is currently “50/50” decided. The final production version of the Nissan iDX is believed to be front engined and with rear-wheel drive, but this won’t make it too expensive, especially since its main target is the above mentioned model. Even so, the iDX may not be as powerful as the GT 86 but it will also be cheaper, and this means stealing away some clients from Toyota.
