In Nissan decided to bring back to life the popular coupe, thus complicating the lives Toyota GT 86 and Subaru BRZ, as well as maximize the use of the original concept car.
Nissan Silvia plans to revive coupe
In Nissan felt the urgent need for a relatively budget and compact sports car. Apparently, the experiment of their colleagues from Toyota was recognized Nissan’s successful, and in the management of the concern, according to the portal Motoring, planning to go the same way. But, of course, with their own adjustments. In the series coupe can transform a pair of unique concepts under the name Nissan IDx, in the style of classic coupe Nissan and Datsun.
Whether to keep this style sports car on the way to the conveyor, is not specified, but in any case it is clear that the production model will be only an ideological heir Nissan Silvia, serialized from 1964 to 2002.
But with Toyota GT86 at future trends there than to argue. According to preliminary data, the coupe from Nissan will receive two power units, but, unlike motor Subaru, they will be equipped with a turbocharger. Senior with a volume of 1.6 liters will be able to develop the same 200 hp, which has a coupe and GT86. Basic modification should be content with a 1.2-liter engine, whose power is not yet known. Both engines will be aggregated with a 6-step “mechanics”.
Hypothetical sports car will have to take the place of the entry-level sports lineup Nissan Z. close to the production version of the Nissan may show next fall at the exhibition in Tokyo – in this case the production sports car will start in 2016. But it is worth noting that earlier representatives of Nissan carefully disowned plans to launch a series of concepts IDx.
