nissan 240sx rumors persist

Nissan appears poised to return to the affordable sports car segment. After long-standing rumors that the Japanese automaker would build a successor to the 240SX the folks at AutoCar are reporting on a possible come-back for the European 200SX (known as the 240SX in North America).

The largest issue facing Nissan, however, is finding a suitable platform for the car. According to a recent report by AutoCar, those in charge of the project at Nissan want the vehicle to be a rear-drive model – like in the past. The only possible platform available is the 370Z’s, but it would likely prove too heavy, even in a down-sized format. Where this leaves Nissan and the rumor mill regarding the 240SX revival is anyone’s guess, but we’d definitely welcome the return of the 240. Just please give us the good engine this time.

    Good engine this time? Hell the KA24 is basically a turbo engine without a turbo. Oil squirters for the pistons and low compression ratio. Slap 10 lbs of breeze on that thing and it makes the SR20DET seem like a terrible waste of money.
