The Nissan IDx might be dead but it might ride again in the next installment of the Fast & Furious franchise.
In a recent Instagram video posted by Dwayne The Rock Johnson, the Fast 8 actor appears to be on set with a bunch of cars, including the unmistakable Nissan IDx NISMO. Johnson points to the IDx and says, “We’ve got a $2 million Nissan prototype” before panning to some other cars.
The much beloved concept car, unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, was a supposed lightweight, rear-wheel-drive sports coupe with styling cues from Nissan heritage models like the Datsun 510 and hakosuka Skyline. Sadly, despite an initial tease, Nissan is not planning to actually make it. Perhaps if its role in the film is strong enough, things will change.
