    Default BEHOLD! The NEW Datsun.

    I saw this on CNN Money, and thought everyone might be interested! $7000 USD - Indian DOM.

    2 - 3 - 5! But can it race? If not, I bet somebody swaps a high performance engine in there before November. Looking forward to seeing a monster GO in Option magazine.

    My John Deere Gator was more expensive than that.......hats off to Nissan for entering a new market. I'd install Panasports and Goodrich KDW II's Bruce.

    Wasn't the goal producing cheap cars in developing countries under the Datsun name?

I mean walking on the moon was pretty good, but how many times you’d gonna walk on the moon? But here was an affordable sports car that had real performance and looked like it cost a lot more than it did.

    Yes the goal was exactly that to produce cheap cars in the developing world for what I've read. I wouldn't mind if they sold that here though.

    No tach? Otherwise the dash doesn't look too bad for a car at that price.
