Report: Nissan considers 200SX sucessor

Nissan is considering building an inexpensive sports car based on the Foria concept car (pictured) shown in 2005. If built, it would essentially be a spiritual successor to the much-missed 200SX, according to Autocar. The rear-wheel-drive car would be positioned below the 350Z, according to the report.

Another possibility under consideration at Nissan is building a mid-engined car in the same price range, perhaps inspired by the two-seat Urge concept. Either vehicle would arrive in showrooms around 2010, the report said. Currently, the Foria-based project seems most likely, with Nissan again showing the car to media at its global design studio in Atsugi this week.
