2015 Maxima. NOT Mustang...

I meant to post this a while ago.

A few weeks ago I posted this picture of a prototype taken in Death Valley this summer.
Which is the 2015 Nissan Maxima.
But somehow, many thought it was the next Mustang. Which is weird. Since the Mustang is a 2 door RWD car with a much shorter wheelbase. And completely different proportions.

So I put this together, showing the car caught in Death Valley. The upcoming Maxima concept.
And the 2015 Mustang, testing somewhere.

What do you think?

Ahhh, good point! It's one of those fake-out camos.

The Maxima BETTER be something different to stay relevant these days. I see this as the Anti-Avalon.

- FusioptimaSX

You're right. FusioptimaSX is also right that Nissan tried to make it look like the Mustang. Ironically, the camo on the Mustang makes it look like a clunker. They seem to have put something on the roof under the camo to screw up the roof line. I do like the reflector stickers they put on the outside, lol.

Regardless, I have little faith Nissan will actually release the design in the middle pic. That crap new Rogue design was the final straw, my style expectations for the brand are back to "prove it" status with me. Maybe they haven't noticed that Hyundai/Kia just keep getting better looking...

Nissan are great cars, but Nissan like Honda has a stumbling block in their head when it comes to the grille. They keep dicking around with something new, and it gets worse every year

Whatever it is, it looks like hot mess!
