Nissan ID× Nismo debuts at Tokyo motor show

Longitudinally Mounted 4 pot and RWD :D

It looks like it could have potential if Nissan somehow keeps out the modern car bloat.

I like it, would definitely get one. But they never look like the concept when they release them.

I hope that they will keep the eyebrow hood line and the 4 sealed beams. Seems like an essential design feature.

I think the more important factor is that Nissan is acknowledging that there is demand for a cheap RWD sporty car. The FRS/BRZ/GT86 proves it.
The only thing they could do to majorly screw it up is that in a video about the IDx i've seen floating around they start talking about how "todays youths like mobile phones more than cars"; Nissan could easily screw it up by putting in hundreds of pounds of bloated electronics or a Ford Sync system...

Andrew, you read my mind. The Juke was interesting in some ways, but no manual available. Sorry, I'm old school and I like my manual transmission.
