At Nissan, plans center around making Nismo a sub brand, including higher performance Nismo RS variants. The intent to ape BMW and Mercedes-Benz’s performance success on a mainstream level isn’t a secret.

The plan, apparently, is to offer a 15% boost in horsepower on the Nismo line. Styling tweaks will be the main focus, though. I’m never one to argue against more power, but it remains to be seen wether Nisssan can keep Nismo modprice iced reasonably. The Nismo 370Z, currently the only Nismo model on sale, carries a huge price premium over a vanilla Z.
