    Lets hope this article from autoexpress.co.uk is wrong.

    Dear Nissan, we want 4WD and 1.8 litre or higher please

    Maybe it's the RS that will get the 1.8-litre lump, but I think the chances are slim that they'll put an AWD system in it... although it's not impossible.

    Was hoping it would be more in the new Type R or Focus RS performance range.

    That'll be the Nismo RS edition.

    With emissions regulations tightening the only way they'll give us 4wd is with electric motors.

    It's not a Gtir but I still quite like it

    The wife officially said that "Hmm, It looks quite nice" which I'm taking as approval to trade her Focus in when the time comes...

    I work at Nissan R&D, they have one in. It looks exactly like in the top picture.

    Would love to but would result in instant dismissal. According to a contractor we had on site our security and site access agreement is tighter than one of his other clients..... Scotland Yard

    I hope they sort the chassis out on it, 247hp from a 1.6 is not a bad place to start for a road car.

    I'm actually quite "excited" to see what they come up with!

    I hope it's not a bag of spanners and drives half decent.

    I know on the @gtiroc Twitter page we've been hinting to Nissan to offer a BTCC car for 2017, to which Nissan replied positively, but didn't confirm.

    So is this thing happening? We're looking at getting a new car by June and the Pulsar is just edging ahead of the Juke as it seems quicker and more economical for less power.

    Funny you should post that, I was thinking about this yesterday.

    If they're even a release date for said Nismo edition?
