Nissan NISMO RS High-Performance Models Coming Next Year [2013 Chicago Auto Show]
#1
http://blog.caranddriver.com/nissan-intr...58_6881277

Immediately following the debuts of the 2013 Juke NISMO and 2014 370Z NISMO at the 2013 Chicago auto show, Nissan announced it is working on even-higher-performance NISMO RS models. The harder-core RSs will aim to take regular Nissans into the dynamic stratosphere, and company reps told us to expect the first NISMO RS to arrive next year in the form of a Juke. Nissan, of course, has some experience turning up the wick on the Juke: It’s currently hawking $650,000 Juke-Rs, which feature a 545-hp GT-R drivetrain.

First Drive: Nissan Juke-R
Prototype Drive: Nissan Leaf EV NISMO Race Car

More RS cars will follow, but Nissan wouldn’t confirm exact models. (We’re hoping for a Murano CrossCabriolet RS. We’re not joking.) The 370Z lineup currently offers the only other NISMO-badged model, so we’d wager that it’s next in line for RS-ification, although that conversion might wait until the next generation Z arrives within a couple of years. But Nissan plans to generate more factory NISMO models in the future—as detailed at the bottom of this report—so we’d bet that any newly NISMO’d models likely also will get the RS treatment. We’d also love to see what the company might do to create a GT-R RS.

Given the automaker’s recent infatuation with CVTs at the expense of manuals and its disappointing Versa and Sentra sedans, we’re glad to hear Nissan will expand upon its enthusiast offerings. The proof, of course, will be in the pudding, so we anxiously await our turn behind the wheel of future RS models.

I asked my dept mgr to run it up the chain of command. And volunteered to work on that project.
