Nissan decided to ask 100 teenagers from around the world to design a car that would appeal to the young audience of car buyers. To most surprise, these teenager’s designs were “retro.” At the Tokyo Motor Show, the IDx Nismo and the IDx Freeflow were unveiled. The design resemble closely to the Datsun 510, which was produced from 1968 to 1974. The concept of having the teens develop a design is a result of an online effort to enlist teens to develop a car they might buy someday.
