Nissan appears poised to return to the affordable sports car segment. After long-standing rumors that the Japanese automaker would build a successor to the 240SX the folks at AutoCar are reporting on a possible come-back for the European 200SX (known as the 240SX in North America).
The largest issue facing Nissan, however, is finding a suitable platform for the car. According to a recent report by AutoCar, those in charge of the project at Nissan want the vehicle to be a rear-drive model – like in the past. The only possible platform available is the 370Z's, but it would likely prove too heavy, even in a down-sized format. Where this leaves Nissan and the rumor mill regarding the 240SX revival is anyone's guess, but we'd definitely welcome the return of the 240. Just please give us the good engine this time.
Cars these days look like shit to me. The curves are getting stupid ridiculous. The headlights are fucking retarded. They are to fat because of safety standards, there is no way around the weight, the 240 will never be below 3200lbs if they make another one.
