Nissan IDx Concepts Drive Details:

  • Nissan’s IDx Freeflow and Nismo Concepts drop by our HQ for sneak preview
  • Cars set to tour Southern California this weekend
  • Tour stops at Petersen Museum, plus Cars & Coffee and Supercar Sunday meets
  • More stops and events are possible; vehicles can be tracked via hashtag #IDxinSoCal

Nissan’s IDx Concepts Nismo and Freeflow created a stir when the wraps came off of both at auto shows in Tokyo and Detroit recently, the automaker clearly tugging on enthusiast heartstrings with its 510-looking box. The official company line thus far has been that the IDx will likely never come to production fruition, but that hasn’t stopped the automaker’s American operations from drumming up support to push for the thing to be made.

The campaign to bring the IDx from concept to reality ratchets up this weekend, when handlers from Nissan U.S.A. take the cars around Southern California to display. In a whirlwind, three-day tour starting on Friday, January 31 through Sunday, February 2, the vehicles will be showcased in a variety of California locales, from the streets of Venice to Irvine's Cars & Coffee, and a special event at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.

The tour began in earnest earlier today, when the cars were dropped off at the Source Interlink Media offices in El Segundo for a sneak preview, otherwise known as our home base. While we didn’t get to drive the cars, we did get to touch and sit in both the IDx Nismo and Freeflow, in addition to talking to company reps.

From here, the concepts head to Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice, where people can scope the cars on Friday from 4 to 10 p.m. The tour continues early in the morning on Saturday at the "Cars & Coffee" meet in Irvine, and then it’s off to the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles for the "Inside the MotoMan Studio" event, featuring revered Nissan hot shoe Peter Brock. Sunday, February 2, will be the last event scheduled for the IDx concepts, at the "Supercar Sunday" gathering in Woodland Hills, from 7 to 10 a.m.

More stopovers and events are possible between January 30 and February 2, all to be announced via Nissan's Facebook page and on Twitter with the hashtag #IDxinSoCal.

a matter of fact that if nissan continues to sell S15 again with the same design and same engine . I can bet everyone ll buy it no matter what. But no other can do this beside nissan. Nissan cars are like fantacy toys to many. Lot of guys out there trade a brand new beamer for 95 180 or silvia...
