    Nissan will build small RWD car based on IDx Concept

    http://jalopnik.com/nissan-confirms-...o-p-1501793053

    Nissan executive vice president Andy Palmer told media there was no confirmation of which of the two concept models would hit production.

    "Don't say that we won't do both, but we will definitely do one of them," he said.

    He went on to hint that the IDx might have a manual transmission, or at the very least, paddle shifters.
    Here is the Nismo version at the Detroit Auto Show, as a reminder.

    It will be interesting to see what the final version looks like. I can't see them doing just a two seater, so the car will have to be bigger than this. Good to see some RWD cars coming to the market though.

    They wouldn't have to extend the wheelbase much to fit in some tiny buckets, and the styling lends itself to plenty of headroom, so it shouldn't be too much longer.

    More of a squared-off/blocky alternative to the FR-S/BRZ... definitely not a bad idea. A production version will obviously be less out there, but I hope they keep most of the styling cues seen on the concept.

    If the production version doesn't keep the side exhaust, it will be a failure

    I love the way these look and will definitely keep them on my radar. If these are decent I'd much rather have one of these then an FRS.

    Of course if Mazda were to enter the segment with a Miata hardtop... Unfortunately not gonna happen.
