Jalopnik is making a big do about “NISSAN’S NISMO IS PLANNING A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT ON MONDAY.” And the Jalops wonder: “What could it be?” It might be the start of a large multinational co-operative project between Jalopnik and TTAC. Or not.

All I know is that Nismo will show off its new headquarters in Shin-Koyasu, near Yokohama. Which happens to be in the same complex where the GT-R’s engine is being built. Which reminds me that I still have to write up THAT story. With Carlos Ghosn being there, it stands to reason that more than a redone building will be announced. All I heard is that Nissan may be slowly turning NISMO into a standalone performance brand. And no, the GT-R powered Juke won’t be there. Or so I heard.

Jalopnik asks whether NISMO will “announce they’re going to make bicycles instead of cars. Or ridiculously fast motorized scooters for old people. Or little GT-R shaped drones for the military. Any guesses?”

I guess, the simplest way to find out is to go there. With Shin-Koyasu a 30 minute hop from where I am at the moment, I will be there on Tuesday at 10am. Interested in some pool coverage, Jalopnik? The worst that can happen is that I get another good series of Carlos Ghosn waving his arms.

PS: What’s with Monday and Tuesday? Jalopnik found out that when it’s Tuesday in Japan,  it’s ”Monday for us Americans.” Amazing, no?
