In celebration of its rich sports car heritage, Nissan North America is hitting the highway for the 28th Annual International Z Car Convention (ZCon), hosted each year by the Z Car Club Association. The company is looking for Nissan enthusiasts and road warriors to join employees and VIPs for a 220-mile road trip from Nissan headquarters in Franklin, Tenn. to a Beale Street celebration in downtown Memphis.

The festivities begin at 8 a.m. Friday, July 17 at 1 Nissan Way in Franklin, Tenn. for a casual "cars and coffee" gathering prior to departure at 9 a.m. through the byways of middle and west Tennessee (full route and map below).

The feature car of the drive will be the late Yutaka Katayama's ("Mr. K's") last-ever U.S. Nissan lease vehicle, a 1974 260Z 2+2, customized by the factory with a full-metal, retractable sunroof.

Nissan Motorsports net three wins, seven podiums in U.S. in a weekend to remember
Jun 29, 2015 - 9:43 PM - by Nissan Forum


Nissan’s U.S.-based pro road racing teams had a weekend to remember at Road America (WI) and Watkins Glen (NY), taking three class wins and standing on a podium seven times overall. It was a stunning achievement, with all three racing teams taking home hardware on a single weekend.

James Davison closed out the Pirelli World Challenge (PWC) GT races at Road America in Wisconsin Sunday with a dominating performance in the #33 Always Evolving / Replay XD Nissan GT3 GT-R NISMO. The talented Australian transplant powered his GT-R past the Lamborghini of former Formula 1 driver Tomas Enge around the halfway mark in the 50-minute sprint race and then pulled away from the field on the scenic four-mile road course. Davison survived a late race restart to easily notch his second PWC victory in impressive fashion. Continue reading...

Jun 26, 2015 - 4:15 PM - by Nissan Forum


Stuntman Terry Grant has broken his own world record for the fastest mile travelled on two wheels in a four-wheeled vehicle – the sporty incarnation of Nissan‘s JUKE, the NISMO RS.

Grant had six attempts at traveling up the famous Goodwood hillclimb course during this weekend’s Festival of Speed, but he broke the record on the first go, achieving a time of 2 minutes 10 seconds.

That eclipses his previous record, set in a Nissan JUKE at the Festival of Speed in 2011, of 2 minutes 55 seconds and sets a new benchmark for the unique challenge. The jeopardy-filled drive was the culmination of three months of practice and set-up for Grant. Continue reading and watch a video...

Though the all-new 2016 Nissan Maxima only went on sale earlier this month, a new Maxima SR Midnight is already raising the bar for sporty style and sophistication.

Nissan victorious in France!
Jun 22, 2015 - 3:43 PM - by Nissan Forum


Nissan’s Alex Buncombe (GB), Katsumasa Chiyo (JAP) and Wolfgang Reip (BEL) took a commanding victory in Saturday’s 1000km Blancpain Endurance Series race, which ran into the night at Paul Ricard in France. This was the first overall Blancpain Endurance Series win for Nissan and the best possible warm up for next month’s Spa 24 Hours for Nissan GT Academy Team RJN.

The #23 Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 started from seventh on the 60-car grid after receiving a five-place penalty for a pit lane infringement. Katsumasa Chiyo made a great start and immediately showed off the GT-R’s brakes to their full effect when a Ferrari, Bentley and McLaren crashed right in front of him at Turn Five. The Safety Car was dispatched while the track was cleared but once the race resumed Chiyo was soon up to second place, hunting down the Lamborghini that was in the lead.
