Mini Z...ummm I mean Juke Coupe?

http://www.motortrend.com/future/fut...arget_frs_brz/

Not sure why MT thinks this "mini Z", as it is dubbed for now, is aimed directly at the FRS/BRZ. Considering it starts out with less hp and is not RWD, but I guess with it having the optional 1.6L turbo and awd off the juke platform it will have its place in the entry level segment. It's more apt to compete with the Fiat and Mini in my opinion.

I still think Nissan should drop this and focus on a reboot of the Silvia/240sx. But since the idea of that was killed back in 2008 with no talks of it since they are going after more of what they feel will sell in today's market. It is doubtful that it will make it to the US and aimed primarily at the Europe and Asian markets.

I agree with you--definitely a Fiat/Mini competitor more than anything. And they should for sure reboot the Silvia/240sx platform. That would be a true BRZ/FRS competitor.
