Nissan to Show New NISMO Model in Chicago


Quote:
Nissan has plans to add another performance oriented NISMO model to its ranks.

At the upcoming Chicago Auto Show, Nissan will preview a 'never-seen-before,' NISMO model. The brand dropped no hints as to what it might be.

Itís possible that it will be the Versa Note NISMO which is already on sale in Japan or a production version of the Sentra NISMO Concept. If Nissan stays true to its word though, it will be something entirely new. This leaves possibilities open for a NISMO version of the Altima or maybe even a performance variant of one of the brandís crossovers.

the wording on this really leaves alot to the imagination. What does "never seen before" mean in this case. We have seen the sentra nismo in concept form. Is it a sentra nismo in production form. We have never seen that. Or does it mean a nismo model in concept or production form that's never been seen at all. Such as a Rogue or Murano or Altima.

Could also mean never seen on these shores as not everyone cruises internet sites looking at cars from other countries. So it could be a nismo NOTE. I think the NOTE would make the most sense really.

Or maybe all this talk of never seen before is really just the new nismo race car. Call me curious here. Well played nissan, well played.

Well they also said that they might make a Nismo version or their iDx prototype. Note Nismo might make more sense because it has very few to compete against. I just really hope is the Sentra because well it has never been done before. And if we're going to go with the "Never seen before" there's a good chance it is the Sentra or Altima because the Note Nismo has already been on sale therefore seen lol.

Either way it looks to be a response to the Focus RS and Civic Type-R that are on their way to the states imo.

Last I heard the entire IDX project has been scrapped. They already had a nismo IDX concept too. While I would have loved it, it makes sense. They wouldn't sell hardly any of them.

The nismo note has been seen but not on these shores. Like I said I don't know exactly what they mean by "seen". Only vehicles I can think of that nismo hasn't touched anywhere in the world is the rogue and altima.

I hope it's something good and US production ready. I'm tired of nissan and all their concepts and cars we will never get.

edit: Just found out Nismo makes a racing Altima. So guess we are down to the rogue LOL.

that is an old article but I wouldn't mind seeing a nismo Sentra. While the sentra sells well it's very bland and the only engine being an under performing naturally aspirated 1.8 (130hp) it's a far cry from the SE-R models of the past.

I think it might be the note nismo as of all magazines, motortrend just did a review of the note nismo s and as we all know, nissan usually doesnt do reviews for american magazines on jdm only models unless they are planning on potentially bringing that particular model to the US market, but we shall see very soon
