Nismo was a tuning division once content (or required) to restrict itself to just one or two models at a time, but these days Nissan is taking the gloves off and allowing its motorsport department to tune just about everything's it's got.

Now in its thirtieth year, Nismo tunes versions of the GT-R, 370Z, Juke and Versa Note, and will soon be working its magic on the Sentra and European-market Qashqai and Pulsar. And that's not even taking into account its considerable racing programs. At this rate, Nismo is going to run out of vehicles to tune pretty quickly, so what has it done? Invent new ones!

No, we're afraid that Nissan is not letting its Nismo division produce its own stand-alone product, but it has released two sets of amusing renderings combining two vehicles into one. One depicts a GT-R crossed with a Maxima, while the other crosses a Sentra with a 370Z.

Of course, neither of these are going to be built, but it's entertaining to check them out just the same, so check them out you should in the gallery above. And, if you want, feel free to suggest mashups of your own. We'll start things off with the Pathfinder/Juke, or, as we'd like to call it, the Puke. Your turn.

UPDATE: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the GT-R was crossed with an Altima. That's definitely a Maxima, and thanks to all of you who pointed it out.

      crazy me, I thought that looked like a Maxima tail and headlights, not an Altima, grafted onto the GT-R.

      The Teana is the Maxima not the Altima
      Maxima headlights and tails as well

      Bring back the Maxima designers who designed the 1988 to 1999 cars.

      Don't encourage the Maxima drivers any more! It's bad enough they have Nissan calling it a four door sports car in commercials, and they all drive like they believe it.

      An Armada/Cube would be hilarious

      A 4-Door GTR as potential.  The Santra 370Z mashup makes no sense... it looks like a stretch 370Z... go 4-Door or don't waste the time.

      Maxima GT-R trim? Good idea. This photoshopped crap, gross. Bleh.
