Word has it Japanese automaker Nissan plans to show two sportscar concepts at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show next month, one of which will be a Toyota GT 86 competitor.
According to WhatCar?, the GT 86 rival will actually be an almost production-ready car with styling coming from a vehicle from the company's past. Nissan declined to say which model is inspired from, but said it's "not a Z car".

The second concept car, described as "more crazy" than the other, is likely to go into production, if public reaction is good, with Nissan Juke Nismo's turbocharged 1.6-liter (197 BHP) under the bonnet.

The 2013 Tokyo Motor Show will take place from November 22 through December 1 at the Tokyo Big Sight, Japans largest exhibition and convention center.
