It's not every day when we have the chance to drive cars not sold in the U.S. But at the recent Nissan 360 event in Irvine, California, the automaker gathered up most of its internationally sold products-- many of which are only available overseas--to let automotive journalists see what we're missing out on, as well as give us a state of the company address over the course of three days.
Japanese journalists naturally gravitated towards leviathans like the Nissan Titan; Mexican journalists huddled around the Nissan GT-R, which isn't sold there; and Americans, we generally took to driving some of the wackier stuff that we can't get on our shores.
Some aren't sold in the U.S. because they couldn't be federalized; others are perfectly suited for showrooms here. We simply don't get them because Nissan doesn't believe the market exists for them. Yet, at least.
After seeing more than 100 classic and modern Nissan and Infiniti concepts and production cars and driving somewhere around 30 of them, we've compiled a short list of vehicles we'd love to see sold in the U.S. that currently aren't.
