Nissan IDx: Dream or Reality?

Nissan has always been great at two things:  Surprising people, and making exciting/affordable cars for enthusiasts.  They usually try their best to bring the concepts to full production instead of teasing everyone, leading them endlessly on with rolling concept debuts.  That’s hard to do in a day and age where emission laws and mpg restrictions […]

The Next Nissan GT-R: What Should We Expect?

The return of Nissan’s international car hero, the GT-R, was the biggest thing to hit the car world since, well the previous GT-R.  Except the story was much bigger this time around in 2008, because Americans could go to their local Nissan showroom and simply give them some money, and in exchange, drive their own […]

Do You Own America’s Most Embarrassing Car?
