Published: Jan 24, 2013
Description: Love it or hate it, Nissan is a believer in its pure electric Leaf. Its rather stupid name aside, the Japanese automaker recently handed it off to its in-house performance division in order to turn it...

@Dustin If you believe in Global warming, go to Antarctica and stand outside for a bit.

What's the upgrade 2 more hours of battery?
Cian Mac Gearailt Jan 24, 2013
Really i don't like the ev they have no future as people need to travel far and tow. The plug in hybrid is the real future the best of both
Aaron Crisp Jan 24, 2013
Has nothing to do with carbon destroying the atmosphere.
Tyler Tarbox Jan 24, 2013
@Dustin. That in no way proves global warming
Larry Martino Jan 24, 2013
Its all falling into place with these nismo models. Remember a previous article talking about what new nismo models would be released? So far all those models have been announced and I see a nismo GTR in the near future
Oliver McIntosh Jan 24, 2013
This electric car bullshit is getting out of hand.
Michael Kozlowski Jan 24, 2013
@ Matt, I agree. I would love to see Nissan make a nismo Altima or Maxima instead of this.
Tyler Tarbox Jan 24, 2013
Nismo Leaf? What kind of person is going to buy that? I mean really there really is no point. I can see this being one of the worst selling car variants of all time
Stephen Cobbs Jan 24, 2013
@Aaron Hahaha I died.
Sam Harris Jan 24, 2013
If that's what you want to believe David.
David Record Jan 24, 2013
leaf is a stupid name because its symbolism over substance. Electricity doesn't just come from 'the plug'. Not to get too political, but global warming is a theory folks.
Matt Piccolo Jan 24, 2013
Why? How about a gtr nismo! Or even an Altima or maxima nismo.
Aaron Cordroch Jan 24, 2013
Cause it gets leafed behind!.. Ill just let myself out
JB Kolod Jan 24, 2013
Why is leaf a stupid name for an electric car?
Jorge Gonzalez Jan 25, 2013
Shaniqua is real straight forward huh, doesn't sugar coat shit. Respect.
Jacob Burford Jan 24, 2013
Pointless beyond believe!

C'mon Victor this is just new and weird. Nissan is a great company no doubt about it.
Aj White Jan 24, 2013
Yeah, I think this is the car that competed at Pike's Peak.
Victor Pitts Jan 24, 2013
Which, I didn't mean they have the fastest cars, which they don't. Lol
Victor Pitts Jan 24, 2013
Don't mind my opinion, Nissan is what I was born and raised with, so they are default my #1 car company. Not just for having the fastest cars, but innovation and pure fun factor.
Victor Pitts Jan 24, 2013
Yes, it's a race car folks. Plenty of torque. There are videos of this thing everywhere, go do some research then come back and hate. If you want Nissan to die, you're an idiot. They're one of the few car companies whose ALWAYS had sports cars.
Christopher LikeaBoss Reber Jan 24, 2013
I'm pretty sure this was a leaf racecar prototype or something from a couple years ago
Duncan Gibson Jan 24, 2013
If it is, it's a good one
Duncan Gibson Jan 24, 2013
I sincerely hope that this is a premature April-fools joke.
Sean Gillespie Jan 24, 2013
Because of this, I now want Nissan to die
Description: As expected it will receive an aerodynamic body kit whose styling will resemble that seen on the Leaf RC race car, but will also include a set of new alloy wheels and various interior changes. For now...

Trey Reilly Jan 24, 2013

Johnny Hoover Jan 24, 2013

Zeus Mocha Jan 24, 2013

Victor Pitts Jan 24, 2013

Petro Maalouf Jan 24, 2013

Will Will Jan 24, 2013

Ty Schuring Jan 24, 2013
I would only buy this if it looked like this and had over 250+ hp
David Hicks Jan 24, 2013

Jeremy Kertgate Jan 24, 2013

Nicolai Stålstrøm Dalen Jan 25, 2013
Watch someone rice one out. Its gonna happen
Stephen Tyler Learn Jan 25, 2013
It's a chrome piece around the bottom of the car. It looks like an exhaust because of the reflection
Trey Reilly Jan 24, 2013
It's a smug exhaust, so the fossil fuel burners behind it are reminded of how evil they are for killing mother earth
Ryan Faber Jan 24, 2013
I like it
Ryan Lopez Jan 24, 2013
Why did Nissan even sell this
Dave Rain Jan 24, 2013
Interesting. Still wouldn't buy one.
