    Alaska still offers North Americans the chance to really experience the wilderness, and Nissan is challenging its Titan pickup to its off-road extremes with a little help from its fans. After crowdsourcing a heap of mods, the company is handing it over to two Wounded Warrior Project Alumni to do their worst in the backcountry to see what the truck can ...

    1409918400

    Aston Martin has been without a helmsman since Ulrich Bez stepped down from the chief executive office at the end of last year to serve as non-executive chairman in a semi-retired ambassadorial capacity.

    Video: Watch this 800-hp Nissan Juke-R savage the 'Ring
    1409338800

    The concept of the 545-horsepower Nissan Juke-R that stuffs the drivetrain of a GT-R into a subcompact crossover is already insane, but Russian company Shpilli Villi Engineering has taken things even further with their own crazy riff on the idea. Its version tunes the engine up to a claimed 800 horsepower, plus a shot of nitrous for an extra 200 hp to put ...

    Rumormill: Nissan IDX production model to get sharper, less retro styling
    1408971540

    The Nissan IDx seems like the type of concept that auto enthusiasts wish they could be driving. With a compact size, style inspired by the classic Datsun 510 and a rear-wheel-drive powertrain, it certainly ticks many of the boxes that people want. Unfortunately, the car seems to be miles away from actually getting a green light for production, but rumours ...

    Monterey: HIGHLIGHTS: Pebble Beach Concept Cars display is whole lotta awesome
    1408381200

    While Pebble Beach is traditionally thought of as the refuge of the pristine and pricey vintage vehicles of the world, there's no shortage of newer vehicles on display. And when we say "new," we mean really new. As in, not even in production new. This is the concept car lawn, and it's home to an eclectic group of vehicles from past and present. Of ...

    Video: Nissan GT-R and Ferrari 458 Speciale in track battle by Evo
    1408060860

    Supercar slayer. That's what they call the Nissan GT-R. And in many ways it is, even though its price and performance over the years have risen to put it squarely in supercar territory of its own right. In fact, as Evo magazine has been compiling a list of its fastest cars – using the Anglesey Circuit in Wales as its common ground – the GT-R ...

    Report: Nismo mashes it up with Sentra 370Z and Maxima GT-R [UPDATE]
    1407875400

    Nismo was a tuning division once content (or required) to restrict itself to just one or two models at a time, but these days Nissan is taking the gloves off and allowing its motorsport department to tune just about everything's it's got. Now in its thirtieth year, Nismo tunes versions of the GT-R, 370Z, Juke and Versa Note, and will soon be working its ...

    Report: Asian automakers still reluctant to use more aluminum
    1407189600

    There's a logical progression of technology in the auto industry. We've seen it with things like carbon-ceramic brakes, which use to be the sole domain of six-figure sports cars, where they often cost as much as an entry level Toyota Corolla. Now, you can get them on a BMW M3 (they're still pricey, at $8,500). Who knows, maybe in the next four a five ...

    Report: Nissan: We lose money on each Leaf replacement battery
    1407157200

    VP Says $6,500 Cost Doesn't Cover It Nissan has been playing its cards pretty close to its chest when it comes to the production costs for Leaf battery packs. The company recently put a price on replacement batteries for customers at $5,500 plus the requirement to return the old battery. If the decommissioned battery is worth $1,000 to Nissan, as they ...
