Following the launch of the 370Z Nismo and Juke Nismo, Nissan plans an expansion of the lineup with the Juke Nismo RS which will be released sometime next year. The Juke Nismo already has 215 bhp (160 kW) from its 1.6-liter direct-injection turbocharged mill but the RS version is expected to go beyond that figure and also pack a more aggressive body kit to match the additional horsepower. At the moment it's not known whether the Juke Nismo RS will be offered in both two-wheel and four-wheel drive versions.

More importantly, the Nissan GT-R Nismo has also been green-lighted for next year. The normal model comes with a V6 3.8-liter twin-turbo engine producing 545 bhp (406 kW). Needless to say, the Nismo variant will pack significantly more oomph and is likely to receive a different body kit as well.
