Nissan will offer a Nismo GT-R

Feb 26 2013, 1:05pm CST | by

Hopped up GT-R coming!

There have been some big goings-on for Nissan and its Nismo performance segment. Nismo has opened its own plant for constructing automobiles. Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn even said that the company would be offering a Nismo version of the GT-R.

The GT-R is already a highly competent car and Nissan previously announced a Track version of the vehicle. A Nismo version would presumably be even higher performing than the Track version. I'm really surprised that Nissan has waited so long to offer a Nismo GT-R, the company already has Nismo versions of everything from the Juke to the Z car.

The car you see in the picture above is actually the Nissan GT-R GT3 spec racecar the costs over $400,000. The car isn't street legal and you'll need a racing license to drive the car.

For years, rumors have swirled about Scion building a convertible version of the FR-S. Alas, well into the FR-S’ life cycle, such a thing has never appeared, at least not in production form. There was a concept, the FT-86 Open, which Scion parent company Toyota showed last year at the Geneva auto show. And along comes this: a lovely targa-roofed FR-S show car. Making its debut at the 2014 SEMA show, the “FR-S T1″ was created by Jeremy Lookofsky of Cartel Customs and wears “Azzuro Californ ...

Styling Shows NV Fullsize Van Influence, Larger SizeFor the last several years, the Nissan Titan has been a virtual non-entity in the fullsize truck segment, soldiering on with a decade-old platform and powertrain, as its other rivals have gone through at least one, and sometimes two, ground-up redesigns.
