10 Classic Cars That Need Revived

Datsun 510

The Datsun 510 was never a powerful car, but it had a huge cult following and truly launched the sports coupe and sports sedan segments in Japan. Thanks to an engine lineup that produced just south of 100 horsepower, the 510 was adequately fast, and its lightweight body allowed for pretty good agility, especially with a few tweaks here and there.

Nissan gave us hope of a 510 revival with the IDx concepts, which clearly were inspired by the coupe version of the 510. These would have been perfect competitors to the likes of the Toyota GT86 and Scion FR-S, but Nissan chose to leave them only as concepts, citing the lack of a rear-wheel-drive platform small enough for these models as its reasoning.
