'ConsumerGuide' says Nissan head office will announce new beefer maxima. The 2004 Maxima will get a completely redesign with a 3.5-liter producing an estimated 280 horsepower vs. today's 250-hp 3.5-liter engine. Come 2004, Maxima itself will be redesigned on a stretched version of the new Altima's platform.

www.freshalloy.com which is a reliable nissan forum has found pics of the 2004 concept testing maxima vechile:



Anywayz, we'll just have to wait

the only thing i dont like about the maximas is the shifter feel. long throw, too lose and not at all direct like on hondas. i also dont' really like the way the rear looks or the way they handle. other than that, they're actually nice cars. straight line race they're great, but like i said handling on the maximas isn't something to write home about. i heard that a 300hp V8 was possible for the next maxima.

someone correct me if i'm wrong, stillen doesn't make a supercharger for the 3.5L v6 in the 02 maxima se's anymore do they?

Wouldn't they put what ever engine (ho V6 or V8) in the new rwd chassis that the g35 is in and really market the maxima as a true 4dsc (four door sports car, look at the old maxima's. They had that on the rear windows).

Well, if you take a look at their line-up right now you'd notice that Nissan doesn't build square looking cars. As for the predicted hp ratings, you guys should be glad Nissan is pushing the performance envelope for Japanese cars here. That only means Honda has to try harder to keep us performance nuts happy. :D
