Nissan IDx Freeflow and Nismo Concepts - A pair of very cool concepts from Nissan that harken back to the 510 Bluebird. I don’t think I’ve been this excited for a new car since the FT86 Concept first came out. Here’s hoping they build it.

Continuing with the Nissan theme for a bit. This time it’s the MID4 Concept. The first is from 1985, and the one below is the MID4 2 from 1987. Although it was never produced, some of the technology in these concepts trickled down to the Z32 300ZX and R32 Skyline, such as the 3.0 V6, All Wheel Drive System, and 4 Wheel Steering. Interesting to think how this would have done against the NSX.
Some more obscure stuff from Nissan. This time it’s the 1971 216X Concept. That bulge on the roof is for a periscope, because rear view mirrors are for chumps. There’s definitely a hint of R32 Skyline in those headlights, and that bumper is pretty futuristic for the era.
