The performance IDx NISMO variant seen here at Goodwood Festival of Speed is seen as a competitor to the similarly rear wheel drive Hyundai Genesis coupé, Scion FRS and Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 models.
If the IDx Nismo goes into production it is believed that it will be powered by a 200hp turbocharged motor, similar to that found in the Juke Nismo.
Unfortunately the bad boy side pipes will probably not make it into production.
So far only a Constantly Variable Transmission (CVT) has been seen in the two IDx concepts.
It is believed the IDx Nismo will have a top speed of 130mph and will reach 60mph from rest in 7 seconds.
No date has been given for the IDx to go into production, but it is believed that it may replace it could replace either the Quest, Xterra, Cube or Juke should any of these models be discontinued.
