LOS ANGELES–On the heels of introducing the Sentra SR Turbo in September, Nissan rolls out the 2017 Sentra NISMO. NISMO—a contraction of NISsan MOtorsport—is Nissan’s high-performance sub brand, and models bearing that name are currently available in the maker’s GT-R, 370Z, and Juke lineups.
In addition to revealing the 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, Nissan also displayed its innovative GT-R LM NISMO race car. Nissan is shaking things up in the legendary LeMans series—and it’s doing so in the fastest of the series’ four classes.
Nissan unveiled a “factory tuned” version of its 370Z Roadster at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show. The 370Z NISMO Roadster Concept is only a one-off at this point, but it could easily be produced if favorable public reaction warrants.
If you thought the quirky Juke hatchback could use even more personality, Nissan just might have your ride. Following its world premiere at last month’s Tokyo Auto Salon, the company brought its high-power Juke NISMO to the 2013 Chicago Auto Show. Also on display at Nissan’s stand was a freshened 370Z NISMO and a more-racetrack-ready edition of its high-end GT-R sports car.

Like the level of the ocean, the horsepower rating of Nissan’s exotic GT-R just keeps rising.
When introduced for 2009, the 3.8-liter turbo V6 in Nissan’s “Giant Killer” GT-R sports car put out a thoroughly impressive 480 horsepower. Yet every year or few, that figure would go up a bit.
Thirty years ago, the most-expensive Japanese car available in America was the Acura Legend. At just under $20,000 with automatic transmission, the Legend listed for almost exactly twice the price of a same-year Chevrolet Impala.
