LET NISSAN HEAR YOUR VOICE! Go vote for the new IDx...

Autoblog is having a vote that Nissan is paying attention to regarding the new IDx. S-Chassis owners, ALL OF YOU, this is your chance to have influence on getting a new car made! Take 5 seconds, click the link below and vote YES!!!

The IDx may not be the S16 Silvia weve all wanted, but at least its RWD, its 4cyl and its TURBO! Dont worry about the CVT scare thing, the car would be a 100% flop if Nissan didnt offer a manual option, but thats besides the point.


Get your voice heard, take 5 seconds, vote yes! Let Nissan know you want this car to be made!

Nissan IDx 'in the plan' for production, needs support from fans [w/poll] - Autoblog

Good looking out, I really hope this car comes out would definitely get one as a daily to keep the s13 as a track/project/ car.

Not at all. Just don't like how the car looks in general. Even if it does go into production, hopefully it will have a manual transmission.

I honestly don't know why they are producing this car. They need to just make a new silvia already, it's stupid imo to make something that isn't a silvia and in a similar class. They screwed up and missed out on all the hype the FRS/BRZ has gotten because they had cold feet. Now they're releasing something similarish to what people were asking for but not what people were expecting.

Nissan fail.



This poll lacks a lot of statistically relevant information. no matter how many of us vote it will be difficult to have confidence that drawing a conclusion from that poll will have any real correlation to the question if it will be profitable to produce that car.

its too bad all you guys voting no cant actually see past the concept ideas toward a more production based version.

nissan gives us a RWD, 4 cyl, turbo setup and it seems like a lot of folks hate it simply because its "ugly" and "not a silvia".

with some exterior tweaking and interior toning down, this car could be absolutely KILLER looking!

i did my own personal take on the car a few weeks back and toned things down a bit...



though im sure most of you arent gonna dig this either

Actually, you're probably right. every car i've purchased in stock form looks like garbage. (gs430, s14, 06 tacoma)

i'm not saying they shouldnt produce it, or i wouldnt buy it because its ugly. I voted no because theres other cars id waste my money on before this one. (and as i get older, i'd like to step up from the 4cyl into something a bit classier for a daily. hence the lexus boat i bought)

Voted no. Car is ugly imo. Not saying I wouldn't buy a new Nissan RWD sport coupe, just not if it looked remotely like that. Back to the drawing board.

this car is ugly as a concept. Just think how bad it will look when they try to reproduce for below 30K (if they go for that segment). Now toyota on the other hand is on the right track..

Can't even vote off my phone but if I could it would be no. That shit is hideous, any "toned" down version will still look like shit they missed the FRS/BRZ hype and have no chance. Nissan doesn't make cool cars anymore. Obviously I'm excluding the GTR.

I agree. I only said yes because its different. Not a good different. But with a few changes it has potential to be really cool.

im definitely voting NO, because they are wasting money making a bullshit knockoff of a datsun, when they should be focusing on making a NEW S chassis

take the over the top concept ideas away from the car and apply more production based lines/materials/current design language in your head and the nissan IDx turns out as a pretty slick little car

Though I doubt I will be able to afford it at all in any way, if I could purchase it, I would over the FRS and BRZ, etc just because I like the way it looks.

yes... 1,000 times yes. a car never looks the same from the concept model.
and the more i look at the nismo version the more i can see where they're going with this idea. that and i love datsun 510's. i like that they went with oldschool datsun body lines. and not some futuristic (new supra) looking style. just my opinion. but i would def buy one.

I would take either one in a heartbeat. I love the styling. As long as they can make it snappy and responsive to drive, and slightly on the tail happy side, I'll take one of each.

Why should anyone have to see past the concept? It is their job to make a concept that everyone will like.

For example, the Kia Stinger concept looks great, has a manual transmission, and I immediately knew I like it, without needing to 'let it grow on me' or having to look past anything.
Who knows, maybe the production version of the Kia will turn out terrible while the IDx will end up looking great, but right now I am not convinced of that.
