From Autoblog:




Nissan will unveil the completely redesigned 2009 Maxima next week at the 2008 New York Auto Show, but wants to whet our appetites with some teaser shots before the big reveal. Unlike most teaser shots, we can actually glean a few details from these. The shot of the headlight, for instance, shows a new shape for the Maxima's "eyes". It appears the sheetmetal from the fender overlaps the headlights in a way that has part of the turn signal jutting out on its own. It kind of looks like the 370Z rendering that appeared in a Japanese mag we showed you a few days ago. Also note the "4DSC" sticker on the rear passenger window, which harkens back to the day when Nissan referred to the Maxima as a "4-Door Sports Car". From what little the teasers tell us, history may repeat itself next week.

One of the Autoblog posters called Nissan the "Pontiac of Japan."
I can believe it......which is why if I were buying an import, Nissan would top the list. Honda and Toyota have always been too sedate (even with the Prelude & Supra).....now if we can just get a TT 300ZX back....all would be well with the world :drive:

The Nissan Maxima announcement this week was probably the most pleasant surprise for me. It looks better than I expected, and the 3.0L V6 diesel available next year should be great.

If they can price the diesel version at about $30K, I'd be all over it. :cool:
