While the Nissan 370Z is one of the best sports cars on the market that delivers the most bang for your buck, the Japanese automaker doesn’t have a model that would compete with the likes of a Volkswagen Scirocco, Volkswagen Golf or the Ford Focus.
According to insiders, Nissan is working on a follow-up to its 200SX coupe that would compete in the compact two-door segment. The model, which was axed in 2002, would fit beneath the 370Z in Nissan’s lineup and will give it a more fuel-efficient and affordable vehicle to lure in younger shoppers.
Sources say that the new model will be rear-wheel-drive but Nissan is still looking for a platform on which to build the model. Using a shorter 370Z chassis has been proved to be to heavy for the replacement for the 200SX.
