Production-Spec Nissan Sentra NISMO Could Debut In LA

#Nissan is apparently set to reveal a production-spec example of the Sentra NISMO at next month's Los Angeles Auto Show 2016.

The Japanese carmaker has confirmed that a new NISMO model will indeed debut in LA and according to Auto Guide, there's a very good chance it will be a performance-focused version of the Sentra.

The model was first previewed by a concept some three years ago and in recent months, prototypes have been spied testing out in public, indicating that a global launch is imminent.

Earlier in the year, sources from within the company said that the model had yet to be approved for production but indicated it could see the light of day if demanded by customers. It seems that has happened.

If the model does come to fruition, it could pack the same powertrain as the concept. That would mean a turbocharged 1.8-liter with a touch over 240 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque and mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Power would then be sent to the front wheels through a limited slip differential.

As for its styling, the bold and aggressive bumpers of the concept could make their way into production with few if any changes.
