Nissan, as a car maker, was founded back in 1933. The company’s initial cars were licensed versions of various Austin cars, including the Seven and A50. Since it began designing its own vehicles, Nissan is most famous for the 240Z, Skyline and GT-R models.

In addition to cars sold under its own brand, Nissan has a luxury marque (Infiniti) and an entry-level brand aimed at developing markets (Datsun). Its in-house motorsports and tuning division is Nismo.

What does Nissan mean?

Nissan is a contraction of Nihon Sangyo (or Japan Industries) group (or zaibatsu) that once owned both Nissan the car maker and Hitachi.
