Generally speaking, most of the cars I get a chance to drive are relatively stock. Oh, sure, there’s the occasional BMW track car to spice things up, but most are showroom fresh.

There are different yardsticks in the truck world. Instead of top speed, or acceleration, or just the right steering wheel thickness, you have payload capacity, durability, and, of course, towing capacity.

Nissan announced this morning that Global Motorsport Head Darren Cox will be leaving the company today. While Cox’s full title is Global Head of Sales, Marketing and Brand, he’s most known by us for his involvement with Nissan’s motorsports programs, including GT Academy and some unique Le Mans cars.
Well, I’m not sure I’d call that unit a steering “wheel,” but Nissan does on their new autonomous driving concept, the IDS. If you’re going to ride around in a car that drives itself sometimes, I guess it had better be interesting, right? »
The Fairlady 240Z. Do you know what a 350Z is? Do you know what a 370Z is? THIS is where it all started. This super hipster “period modified” car. »
Nissan’s latest concept car for the Tokyo Motor Show appears to be a quite nice and rational update of a car they didn’t make, which was then slathered in some of the most potent, weapons-grade marketing horse-, bull-, and batshit we’ve seen in a good while.

There’s an old saying: “If at first you don’t succeed, quit and give up entirely.” The folks at Nismo do not believe in this philosophy! Despite struggling at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the bonkers front-wheel drive Nissan GT-R LM Nismo will return to the FIA World Endurance Championship next year — but not any sooner. »
The big news for Infiniti’s 2016 QX50 crossover is an extra four inches of legroom in the back. With rear-wheel drive and terrible fuel economy, but more advertised horsepower than a rival Acura or Lexus. it’s billed as “the driver’s crossover.” In reality though, it’s no poor man’s Porsche Macan. »
Nissan issued a press release explaining their crossover testing methods, and all I can say is that the Juke is tougher than me. Or you. »
Anthropomorphized Commedia dell’arte mask/Nissan-Renault CEO Carlos Ghosn brought the restyled 2016 Nissan Altima to Bloomberg HQ for Matt Miller to stand next to. Matt Miller is very tall. (Updated with Matt Miller-less official pics.) »
