The 2013 Nissan Altima Looks Beefy

A Jalopnik reader spotted this super-secret 2013 Nissan Altima mule near his office and managed to get a snapshot of its meaty proportions. With funky wheels and big-bore exhausts, it's possible the aging Altima could once again make the mid-size market more interesting.

As to whether or not the next Altima will become the sporty, affordable family sedan of our dreams, or become a CVT-smothered, overweight snooze fest, remains to be seen. It's already common knowledge the car will get a supercharged 2.5-liter engine that'll match the 3.5-liter V6 for power.
