Nissan NX2000
Nissan NX2000

Saw this one at Advance, haven’t seen one of these in a while despite being only 15 years old… remember these?

I sure didn’t remember this… “The NX2000, with its light weight, stiff chassis, and limited-slip differential, was considered one of the best-handling front-wheel-drive cars of the time. In 1992, Road & Track magazine included the NX2000 in a test of the world’s best handling cars against such competition as the Acura NSX, Porsche 911, Nissan 300ZX, Mazda Miata, and Lotus Elan.” (Wikipedia on NX)

I never drove one. Or knew anyone who did. So why didn’t this thing sell? Oh yeah, the front. The Japanese can ruin the front of a car faster than anyone…
