2013 Nissan Altima?

This was just sent to me, so I thought I'd share it.

Looks like it could be an early look at the next Altima. It does, kind of, match the spy shots of the actual car that we saw a few days ago.
The next Altima is supposed to be getting an all new Hybrid system, similar to the one used in the new Infiniti M Series. Excet it will use a 4 Cylinder instead of a V6.
There are also rumors about a 2.0 Liter Turbo. (Just like everyone else these days).
So the base engine could become the 1.6 Liter Turbo with 190hp. And the V6 might disappear.

We'll see more about the new Altima very soon anyway.
Looks like another great choice in the mid-sized segment is coming up soon.

The wild card might be the all new Accord next year....Will they pull another "New Civic" pathetic move?

If this is real it looks great

It would be quite the looker if this did turned out to be the next Altima, but chances are they'll do something a bit more conservative yet still somewhat sporty.

Hmmm... The more I look at this rendering, the more it looks like a Honda effort (from when Honda actually designed nice looking vehicles).

Maybe this is the next-gen JDM/Euro Honda Accord/Acura TSX?

That's the same photo that was bandied about as the next Sentra SE-R.. though it does make more sense as an Altima. Of course, the production version will be quite toned down, almost unrecognizable I bet.

Looks like someone took the Current Mazda 6 and morphed it into a Nissan product and called it Altima. Not too impressed.

Looks like the real deal for the Altima SE-R.

Looks like a new SE-R variant judging by those massive wheels and aggresive bodykit.

Very cool stuff.

This looks really good. The current Altima has become so horribly bland and cheap looking compared to the current competition.

Will the next Murano still based on the Altima platform? Will it come in 2013 as well?

Will the next Altima-based Murano come out in 2013?
