Was Carlos Ghosn Whacked? Was Carlos Ghosn Whacked?

There’s an old Mafia trope. Usually a mob boss looks all-powerful, like nothing can stop him and no one can stand up to him. Until he takes things a step too far, and The Commission, AKA the Board of Directors, the other families, whatever, they decide he’s done. And then they get whacked. A new story from the …

The Nissan Altima Wasn't Always Just a Rental Car

When was the last time you thought about the Nissan Altima? Buyers hardly do anymore, given the current sedanocalypse. The new one has all-wheel drive, but... so do any number of better cars? Probably the last time you thought about the Altima was when you flew to Minneapolis or Phoenix for a work conference and it…

Even in the current unpredictability of our news cycle, I don’t think anyone could’ve fathomed a reality where we’d wake up to headlines that Carlos Ghosn—the ruthless turnaround artist who saved Nissan from the brink nearly 20 years ago and united it with Renault and then Mitsubishi—would be arrested on charges of…

Even Nissan employees talk about visiting the home of Nismo, the Omori factory near Yokohama, like making a pilgrimage. Getting to go is a great privilege, and now I have a better idea why. You can turn up, plunk down $51,000 and buy a brand new RB26 engine out of the legendary R34 Skyline GT-R.

It's Lame That Jim Carrey's 'Crappy' Car in Bruce Almighty Was a Datsun 280Z It's Lame That Jim Carrey's 'Crappy' Car in Bruce Almighty Was a Datsun 280Z

Yesterday evening, I was where I usually wind up after hours: On my couch, watching movie that I’ve already seen before. The film of choice was Bruce Almighty. It’s fine, has a few funny points, but importantly, doesn’t demand your full attention. I did, however, notice whoever decided the main character’s “crappy”…

Holy Crap David Lynch Once Directed A Nissan Micra Commercial Holy Crap David Lynch Once Directed A Nissan Micra Commercial

Like many, I’m a fan of David Lynch and his strange, often disturbing movies that manage to turn mundane experiences terrifying, and make terrifying experiences unsettling and baffling. You’d think Lynch, talented as he is, would be a strange choice for a car commercial, but once-bold Nissan was willing to give it a…

The Only Thing This 400-HP Nissan 370Z SEMA Project Car Makes Me Feel Is Sad The Only Thing This 400-HP Nissan 370Z SEMA Project Car Makes Me Feel Is Sad

Look. Look at that wickedly orange and modded Nissan 370Z. It’s been swapped with a twin-turbo V6 that makes 400 horsepower. It has a manual. A manual! But rather than excitement or joy, this car only gives me a deep sense of sadness.

This Apocalypse-Ready Nissan 300ZX Does Battle With an Unusual Infiniti V8 Swap This Apocalypse-Ready Nissan 300ZX Does Battle With an Unusual Infiniti V8 Swap

Nathan Churchel has always looked for ways to make his 1984 Nissan 300ZX Turbo stand out, as merely being the second person he knew of to swap in the massive VH45DE V8 from an Infiniti Q45 wasn’t enough. He gave the car a truly apocalypse-ready metal widebody, and was one of the showstoppers at Radwood Philly.

The Long-Range Nissan Leaf E-Plus Will Start at $36,000: Report The Long-Range Nissan Leaf E-Plus Will Start at $36,000: Report

When the new Nissan Leaf was introduced with only a 40 kWh battery pack touting a range of 151 miles and a price just under $30,000, people questioned how it would compete with new EVs like the Chevy Bolt and Tesla Model 3. But Nissan also promised a long-range model, and a new report suggests it will start at a…

Nissan Swears It Hasn't Forgotten About the Z And GT-R Nissan Swears It Hasn't Forgotten About the Z And GT-R

Sadly, there most likely won’t be an all-new car to replace the aging Nissan 370Z for the 50th anniversary of Z next year. But the automaker wants to be clear that it hasn’t forgotten about that and the next-gen Nissan GT-R, both of which it plans on bringing back “one way or another.”

Nissan’s Zama Heritage Collection Is a Paradise of Skylines, Oddballs and Race Cars (And It’s Free) Nissan’s Zama Heritage Collection Is a Paradise of Skylines, Oddballs and Race Cars (And It’s Free)

One of my favorite things to do when visiting a country is to check out its local car museums. It’s a good indication of what types of cars are appreciated there, how the local car industry has influenced life around it and how the local culture has influenced the cars as well. Unlike in Italy, where a lot of the…

The Nissan Skyline GT-R is one of those ‘90s tuner cars that doesn’t really exist in stock form anymore. And if they do, they’re usually really hard to find and expensive. One guy in Australia chanced upon a stock one in pristine condition recently, and it just might be one of the last ones out there like that.
