Along with the impending refreshening
of Nissan's modern-day Z, the internet has been abuzz for about a year
of a new smaller and less expensive coupe
based on the same platform. This rear-wheel-drive coupe would compete against the upcoming Toyota/Subaru
sports coupe, which also are also to be driven by the rear wheels. What we haven't expected, though, is an Infiniti version of this 240SX revival. According to rumors, the Nissan version would get a small displacement four-banger while its big brother from Infiniti would get a V6 displacing 2.5 liters.
reports that this new entry-level Infiniti will be displayed at an as yet unnamed auto show
sometime within the next year. Color us awfully excited at the prospect of RWD coupes from the likes of Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai and now Infiniti, all of which are set for the American market. Affordable performance never goes out of style, even when gas prices
are this high.
