Nissan took the New York Auto Show by storm with their boldly designed Maxima featuring a stylish body with a floating roof creating a more upscale appearance of the mid-size sedan. Now, Theophilus Chin decided to chop off the rear doors and create a more pronounced sloping roofline suitable for a Maxima Coupe while X-Tomi Design envisioned a more practical Maxima Wagon version featuring a longer rear overhang to enable a roomier trunk.

It's not known at this point whether Nissan plans additional body styles of its "4-door sports car" which is bound to go on sale in United States this summer. It rides on a newly developed platform which has enabled an 82 lbs (37.1 kg) weight loss and a 25% increase in torsional rigidity. Power comes from a V6 3.5-liter engine with 300 bhp (223 kW) and 261 lb-ft (353 Nm) sent to the wheels via a new Xtronic gearbox.

Prices in U.S. for the 2016 Nissan Maxima start at $32,410, without taking into account the $825 destination and handling fee.
