Conceptually, Nissan created its Terranaut concept as a mobile laboratory. It's designed to transport and protect scientists during study missions to inhospitable places like the Arctic Circle, the Moon or Camden, New Jersey (anyone who saw that joke coming a mile away, give yourself a free kick). In reality, it looks like a pitch-perfect revival of the International Scout construct circa 1969 or thereabouts (1966-1976 Ford Bronco lovers can chime in here too.) That means it'd make a perfect product-line addition for the next decade (hellooo, Toyota FJ), not that such devilishly clever stuff is in the cards.
