Nissan considering a new sportscar?
The GT-R hasn’t been released yet, and Nissan is already considering a new sports car. Nissan has a lot of option for the new model, but they haven’t decided on one yet.
The first option will be a replacement for rear-drive 240SX/Silvia, or a production version of the Urge Concept unveiled in 2006 at the Detroit Auto Show.
The next choice will be a mid-engined and build a rival of sorts for the Lotus Elise. At one point, the Foria, the shapely, Italianate 2+2 sports coupe concept from the 2005 Tokyo motor show was also in the running for this vacant specialty car slot in Nissan’s line-up, but the Foria, we hear has now been canned.
Nissan will take a decision sometime next year, and the new sportscar will go into production in 2010.
