No disrespect, but Nissan built many of the best sports cars in existence. It's a crying shame what the company has become, but what can you do? People want cheap SUVs now.

You are absolutely correct. But Nissan has never been luxury. The GTR when it first debuted was great bang for the buck out performing cars that cost 3-4x more, but the interior is cheap AF.

Nissan is dying a slow death. Look at how long they have been rehashing cars like the 370z. That thing is ancient!!! But yes society has gone completely off the deep end here thinking they all need stupid crossovers.

Was it really that hard for CBC to find a stock photo of an R35?

None of that helps make Nissan a luxurious brand, hell none of that help Nissan make a proper CVT.

Aren't they smart then? Instead of investing in weak segments, they spent their R&D into a cheap EV with the Leaf, and built shitty crossovers. What's the point of building a new platform for a weak sports car segment that needs partnerships to survive? (Toyota/Subaru, BMW/Toyota)

Nissan went downhill when they transferred their factories outside of Japan and allowed foreigners to buy part of the company and get their hands in car building.

That's expected. Without Renault, Nissan would had gone bankrupt. They should learn from Subaru.

I agree, something worth $100,000 doesn't automatically mean that it is a luxury item.
The journalist is just not a car guy, if he wrote a Legend Japanese Super Sports car, I would be agree to it 100%.
