LAS VEGAS, (October 31, 2001) - Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) today announced it will produce and market NISMO high-performance aftermarket parts for Nissan and Infiniti vehicles in the U.S. market. NISMO parts, which will be available next fall, cater to Nissan enthusiasts and will offer a factory warranty.

"We're excited to be joining one of the fastest growing niches in the specialty automotive equipment industry," said Jed Connell, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing. "NISMO has nearly 20 years of experience developing and producing high-performance parts and accessories and shares Nissan and Infiniti's uncompromising commitment to quality."

Increasing popularity in manufacturer-backed performance parts and the requests of Nissan and Infiniti enthusiasts led the way for NISMO to enter into the U.S. market. NISMO originated in Japan in 1984 and has established itself as the premiere supplier of high-performance aftermarket parts and accessories for Nissan vehicles in Japan.

"The name NISMO stands for NISsan MOtorsports - a fitting name since NISMO parts will offer cutting-edge performance," said Connelly.

NISMO branded parts will cover three areas - NISMO Performance Parts, designed for Nissan vehicles; Infiniti R-Spec performance parts designed for Infiniti vehicles; and NISMO racing parts designed for off-road/race-track use. NISMO also will offer performance parts for current and previous model Nissan and Infiniti vehicles, including the Sentra SE-R and the forthcoming Infiniti G35 and Nissan 350Z.

To my understanding, lots of parts that NISMO will make for other cars (Sentra, 300ZX, etc. *just guessing*) will probably fit onto our cars also. Primeras/G20s are the bitches of the Nissan line up anyways, and share parts with many of the other platforms. :smoke: And if they don't fit, we can MAKE them fit. :evil:

I was actually in Vegas when they announced this. It was at the SEMA car show =) Man, that show rules! This was my second year going and I'm hooked, there are soooo many cool and new car parts there it's just nuts. I have pictures somewhere of the Nissan motorsports parts on display, oh yeah and the R1 (i think?) RB26DETT motor. That was cool! =)

It'd be really nice if they could import some of the older Nismo parts from Japan for our cars, even if it's a special order part I don't care, i'll wait. :)
