History

First Unveiled at the 1985 Frankfurt Autoshow, the MID4 was a concept car designed by Nissan to originally go on sale in the mid-late 1980s. Nissan had aimed the MID4 to compete with European supercars from Porsche and Ferrari. The MID4 boasted a wide array of technology and features that would eventually find its way into other Nissan production cars. The MID4 prototypes would evolve into the MID4 II, though it would never be put into production.

Early Development

The responsibility of creating the MID4 was given to a team of designers headed by Shinichiro Sakurai in the Spring of 1984. The progress of Sakurai's MID4 team was amazingly rapid, the first four prototypes were completed by March 1985.
