When it’s time to take on the road ahead, the first step is choosing a car that adds excitement to every mile along the way. Luckily, Nissan is an automaker that looks at the highway and sees the same thing you do: potential.
In fact, the company’s reputation for engineering sporty rides is so pronounced that AutoGuide.com was recently inspired to compile a list of Nissan’s all-time best offerings in the realm of performance models. Needless to say, the team at our Virginia Nissan dealership was interested to see which vehicles would land on the Top 15 Nissan Sports Cars of All Time.
Of course, a phrase like “of all time” is always good for a trip down memory lane. Models like the Micra Superturbo, Pulsar GTI-R, and older incarnations of the Z Car are always worth a nod. What we’re even more excited about, though, are the models you can still slide into at the showroom today!
An easy fit for the list, the modern Z Car is a living legend that’s familiar to just about any gearhead out there. 2016 brings drivers both coupe and roadster options for the 370Z, both built around – you guessed it – a 3.7L V6. The result is a fully-modernized take on timeless performance, churning out up to 350 horsepower for a riveting experience.
A departure from the typical two-door sports car body style, the Juke-R equipped the eye-catching crossover with a 545 horsepower engine borrowed from the GT-R for a new take on crossover capabilities. This year, the Juke-R 2.0 takes advantage of the GT-R NISMO’s powertrain for a solid 600 horsepower.
Of course, the 2016 Nissan Juke may be more fitting for Virginia’s daily drivers. At 215 horsepower, the 2016 Juke NISMO RS is still more than enough excitement to shake a stick at on your daily commute.
No matter your style, the Nissan nameplate is the one you want to see on the hood if you’re craving powerful performance.
