yes, its a 350 z, not a 370 z, but who cares?Some car makers make it easy; posting their sales details in a copy-friendly format instead of pdf. So the full details of Nissan’s not so bad December (up 18%) and not so great year (down 19%) are here for your perusal after the jump. First, the highlights:

  • Nissan Division posted sales of 64,296 units in December compared with 53,829 units sold in December 2008, a 19.4 percent increase.
  • Nissan Versa sales in December set a record for the month at 6,809 units, a 32.5 percent increase over December 2008 sales.
  • Other Nissan models with double-digit, year-over-year sales increases in December were Maxima (59.5 percent), Z (63 percent), Frontier (113.1 percent), Xterra (14.9 percent), Pathfinder (49.2 percent) and Armada (75.8 percent).
  • For calendar year 2009, Rogue set a record of 77,222 sales, a 7.2 percent increase over 2008, and sales of Maxima and Z saw increases of 13.3 percent and 26.9 percent, respectively, compared with calendar year 2008 sales.

    I wonder how many more views you get with that photo than a stock shot of, say, a Versa.

    (wolf whistle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) But Roger “Raji” Lowenthal from Be Cool called and wants his pimp coat back.
     
    I am seeing Versa’s all over the place in my city of 20,000 that happens to have a Nissan dealer, mostly being driven by rather young people and a few gas saving commuters.  But looking at the numbers I see a ton more Maxima’s than I see Altima’s around here, maybe folks in Gallup, NM just like bigger cars?
     
    I can’t believe Armada sales are up that much though?  WTF?  A huge gas sucking SUV named after a fleet of Spanish ships that got their butts handed to them because they weren’t maneuverable enough, and sales are actually UP?

    That is one sweet, bitchin’ ride in the photo. The car’s not bad, either.
