  • Nissan Sentra-based Ferrari F40 replica

    What you see here is a Ferrari F40...if Pininfarina had let designers Leonardo Fioravanti and Pietro Camardella take acid during the sketching process. Thankfully, that's not what happened back in the early '80s (other stuff may have been involved, sure) and the real Ferrari F40 is a masterpiece. The car you see above is not a Ferrari. It's a Nissan Sentra that murdered a plastic factory and fashioned the remains into this F40 skin suit. This truly awful machine is listed for sale on Craigslist (via Carscoops) and is currently located in El Paso, Texas. It has Mexican plates, and the 1990...

  • 2017 Nissan Sentra Nismo
    2017 Nissan Sentra Nismo revealed at 2016 LA auto show

    Nissan is spicing up its humble Sentra sedan for the 2017 model year. We’ve already had a taste of the Sentra SR Turbo, which packs a turbocharged 1.6-liter inline-4 good for 188 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. And at the 2016 Los Angeles auto show on Wednesday, Nissan introduced a...

  • Nissan Tsuru
    Circa-1990 Nissan Sentra to finally cease production in Mexico

    While Nissan in the United States is busy promoting its new turbocharged Sentra SR, the company's counterparts down in Mexico are marking the end of an era: the Nissan Tsuru, which was sold here as the Sentra in the early 1990s, is finally going out of production. With more than 1.8 million built...

  • 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo
    2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo first drive review

    Faulkner famously told us the past isn't dead; it isn't even past. We can't prove it, but we think he had the Nissan Sentra SE-R in mind. The 1991-1994 SE-R set the cheap-car benchmark for a generation: a flyweight car with feathery controls and a lamprey lock on the pavement. Think ersatz M3 with...

  • 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo
    2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo pumps out 188 hp, thanks to the Juke

    It's been forever since the Nissan Sentra SE-R was a machine to be feared--but this year, a new Sentra SR Turbo gives us hope that its tossable, rev-happy spirit lives on. The 2017 Sentra SR Turbo gets its start as a stock Sentra SR, complete with its 124-hp, naturally aspirated inline-4. Yank that...

  • Nissan Sentra NISMO concept, 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show
    Sentra Nismo likely to be next from Nissan’s go-fast division

    The next Nissan to receive some performance tweaks from in-house tuner Nismo is likely to be the Sentra. A partially camouflaged Sentra prototype wearing a sporty body kit has been spotted testing in the United States and is thought to be a new Sentra Nismo. The prototype, photos of which can be...

  • Nissan Sentra NISMO concept, 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show

    In quick succession, NISMO has expanded its lineup from the sole 370Z NISMO to include a handful of new offerings such as the Juke NISMO, Juke NISMO RS and the GT-R NISMO. But the official tuner to Nissan has much more on the drawing board and at the Los Angeles Auto Show today it’s providing a taste of what’s in store. MUST SEE: 2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO: 2013 Tokyo Motor Show Live Photos NISMO has given a clear signal that its next model will be based on the humble Sentra by unveiling a striking Sentra NISMO concept in L.A. Before you smirk, just take a look at some of the...

    Nissan First Carmaker To Use QR Codes On Window Stickers

    You can't fail to have noticed the abundance of Quick Response (QR) codes on products and services these days. They appear on everything from soda cans to billboards, websites and TV adverts. The curious little pixellated codes have become a great way for companies to offer information to anybody...

    Guilty Pleasure: Buick Reatta

    Welcome back to the Guilty Pleasures series, a weekly journey into the land of cars we shouldn't, yet do want. The ideal Guilty Pleasure car sold for a bundle when new, failed miserably in the showrooms, and only gets discussed later— if it is remembered at all— in semi-mocking tones...

  • 1998 Nissan 240SX LE
    Nissan Silvia (240SX) Revival Dead, Sentra Coupe Instead?

    We aren't big fans of the current Sentra. It's not that it's a bad car, it's just not all that sporty, even in SE-R trim. The CVT transmission has a lot to do with it, though the Spec V remedies that. But Nissan appears to have done away with plans to revive the 240SX/Silvia as a Mazda MX-5...

    Chumpcar At Hallett: The Race In Review

    You have to be a certain kind of crazy to participate in a 24-hour endurance road race. You have to be even crazier to do it as both driver and crew, essentially ensuring you won't sleep for 30 hours or more. But that's exactly the kind of crazy we are, and we'd do it again this weekend if we...

    Car Connection Comparo: Nissan Sentra SE-R vs Honda Civic Si

    These two models are considered staples in the sports compact world. Before Subaru came with the WRX, front wheel drive sedans like the Honda Civic Si and the Nissan Sentra SE-R were popular among people who were looking for a practical and fun daily-driver. While the cars disappeared for a while...

  • 2011 Honda CR-Z

     The CR-Z may be selling well in Japan, but the car is receiving lukewarm praise from the automotive press, like our own Marty Padgett’s Bottom Line and The Car Connection, and the cold shoulder from the performance-import crowd. Even the green car guys are looking at the mileage numbers with disappointment compared to the first Insight. The recent news that manufacturer’s from Japan, mostly Toyota, are looking at the CR-Z as a sign that the public wants sporty hybrids. They should take note at several performance oriented examples listed here at what is causing this backlash and learn...

    2010 Nissan Sentras: Ordinary People Movers Reviewed

    Nissan's Sentra--a front-drive, compact sedan--was redesigned for 2007.  The result:  a transformer-robot exterior, ersatz 1959 Cadillac grille and goofy tiny side-view mirrors.  The interior's dot-effect seat fabric is playful, though; the Spec V adds sporty red accents and bolstered front...

    Nissan planning to mass produce electric vehicles by 2012

    Promises about electric vehicles are a dime a dozen, and so far no one - not even Tesla - has managed to deliver a real daily-driving production car in volume. Nissan has so far promised to deliver its first electric vehicle by 2010, although initially it will be available only to commercial fleet...

  • 2008 Nissan Nuvu electric vehicle concept

    Nissan may be releasing a new all-electric vehicle next year, but the styling of the car has yet to be finalized, which makes speculation about its appearance rather difficult. To help us out, Nissan's chief designer Shiro Nakamura has come out and provided some clues about the new EV's styling. The new Nissan EV will shock viewers with its appearance, Nakamura explained to Automotive News, adding that this is a tactic designed on purpose to make sure the public knows that this is an all-electric car and not just a hybrid. In this vein, the car will be avoiding the wedge-shape adopted by the...

That didn't stop Nissan's product planning director Mark Perry from confirming a 2010 U.S. launch for a five-seat electric car back in...

    Nissan will be selling new versions of its Sentra starting from March next year in SE-R and the more powerful SE-R Spec V trims. The original SE-R launched in 1991 helped establish the concept of a "sport compact" car, and now the new model will help lift the bar further for cars with sports...
