Preproduction Nissan?

Recommended Posts

Well we were drivin to the car show today, and these 2 cars pass us with Michigan Manufacturer plates. They were obviously some sort of preproduction vehicle, but they had no camo. My guess is they are some sort of Nissan.

You can see the Nissan guage treatment in this shot, if you look closely.

What do you guys think?

I am actually going to guess Hyundai. That rear is NOT very Nissan at all.

That's a Nissan from another market, but I forget it's name. I think there was a rumor it may become the next Maxima.

Miller is correct, it's probably a Nissan Teana-based SM5 or SM7 (Renault-Samsung–branded Korean Nissans).

It was thought to be the new Altima (why else would it be there?), but apparently not, based on Edmund's teaser photo:

Samsungs anyone?

That's a Nissan Teana shell. It's actually the test bed for the new Altima. The Teana won't be coming here and the 2007 Maxima won't look like that.

Yeah, we already know it's a Nissan because we've seen pictures of the production version. I'm going to agree with the "Altima test mule" idear posted by Variance.

It's most likely the shell. Nissan wouldn't sell it here since it looks too close to the Infiniti M45. Hell, it's practically the same vehicle with a different front and back end clip and interior.

Looks like an Impala with a new grille and the ass of a BMW 7-Series.

Nissan Teana? For North America? No. Just no.
