Nissan‘s 240SX sports coupe is not coming back. According to an interview in Ward’s Auto World, Larry Dominique, chief product planner for Nissan, said that the company considered the car before the economy hit the toilet in 2008, but the 30,000 annual sales would not be enough to justify the investment.

“I’m not looking to fill every niche, every opportunity. If I let my product planners go, they could come up with 15 other cars we should have.” The 240SX revival would have apparently been front-drive anyways, but Dominique said that any sort of car would be under the Sentra nameplate, rather than an all-new model line.
