For $12,990, Orange You Glad I Didn’t Say Sentra?

The term Q-ship originated in WWI when merchant vessels carried hidden armament to attack and sink enemy subs. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Sentra also looks sedate, but hides a turbo 2.5-liter. Would you sink thirteen large for it? » 5/25/10 8:00am 5/25/10 8:00am

And The Winner Is...

Even after an SE-R Sentra (OK, fine, an SE-R 200SX) won a LeMons race last year, conventional wisdom held that Nissans can't really compete in the series. Forget conventional wisdom, because the Rogue Squadron SE-R just beat 107 cars! » 5/09/10 11:50pm 5/09/10 11:50pm

Nissan's Epic Sentra SE-R Ad Shot Entirely With RC Cars

Called "Drift," Nissan Canada's latest commercial for the Sentra SE-R features nothing but 1/10 scale RC cars. The epic ad was even filmed using other RC cars and an RC helicopter. Sounds more fun than driving a Nissan Sentra SE-R. » 4/05/10 10:00am 4/05/10 10:00am

Bring a SR20DET-Powered SE-R To LeMons, Get 9,200 Penalty Laps

Remember the SE-R that we saw at the Arse Freeze-A-Palooza '07 race » 11/25/08 3:00pm 11/25/08 3:00pm, the one that ? (who , got into the California State Demolition Derby Championship, and apparently plan to take on every form of racing the planet has to offer) spent a few more bucks on their SE-R and took it to the race at Infineon.

Project Car Hell: WRX or SE-R?

Unsurprisingly, the Le Car-itude of the Lectric Leopard carried the day in yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll, with the Atomic Scientist Escort going down like a criticality incident sending a reactor core melting through the earth's crust to the water table. We're going back to fossil fuel today, with a couple of… » 9/19/07 5:30pm 9/19/07 5:30pm

Name-Change, Sentra, Stat!

Back in high school, we had a friend named Bob. He sat behind us in German class. He worked at Taco Bell, but preferred to tell people, "I'm in the employment of Pepsico." One day, a customer walked up to the counter, saw his name and said, "Oh, it's you Bob." Our classmate Shannon Quinlan had a quirkily crushable… » 6/06/07 5:30pm 6/06/07 5:30pm

Spy Photos: 2008 Nissan Sentra SE-R?

Spy shots of the new-for-2008 Nissan Sentra SE-R have been hard to come by as of late, with many pondering whether we'd be seeing anything remotely better looking for the '08 model year than what many Sentra fans have opined as the "less than enthusiastic...styling" of the 2007 model. Although we still can't answer… » 2/26/07 2:01pm 2/26/07 2:01pm

LA Auto Show Preview: Nissan SE-R, SE-R Spec V

If you've been keeping track of the spy shots coming down the pike, you won't be surprised the second and third of Nissan's LA Show trifecta are the Sentra SE-R and SE-R Spec V — the latter in cornea-blitzing yellow. The factory-tuner versions of Nissan's compact sedan are coming in March 2007 as 2007 models. Both… » 11/29/06 10:54am 11/29/06 10:54am

Spy Photos: Nissan Sentra SE-R?

We've never known a carmaker to take yellow-snow route with a new model prototype, but here's a new Nissan Sentra in just such an, albeit ill-applied (or Photoshopped), scheme. We can't confirm if it's one of the the new, more potent Sentra variants going incognito ahead of their unveiling at the Los Angeles show… » 11/27/06 3:45pm 11/27/06 3:45pm

Higher-Spec Sentras to Debut at the Los Angeles Show

Edmunds Inside Line has been watching the skies for news about Nissan's higher-spec Sentra for 2007, the SE-R. Now, they report the former Datsuns announced they'll introduce not only the 2007 Sentra SE-R but also the even higher-spec Sentra SE-R Spec V at the Los Angeles auto show later this month.

Spy Photos: 2008 Nissan Sentra SE-R

With a new Nissan Sentra on the way for 2007, the question on the lips of boy racers (other than, "what gas bottle, officer?") is, how much love will Nissan show? The answer is, not much initially. But if the brake calipers on this test car — reported to be the next Nissan SE-R — hint at what's to come, the next… » 7/18/06 8:34am 7/18/06 8:34am
