After Jann Mardenborough took a magnificent pole position for last weekend's British GT race at the Nürburgring, he got to taste the Champagne on the podium when he and his team mate Alex Buncombe took third position after a close fought race.
It has been 20 years since the first Nissan Altima rolled off the line in Smyrna. Today, more than 4.4 million Altimas later, Nissan celebrates another milestone: production of the top-selling vehicle's fifth generation.
The name "Altima" originally referred to a trim line of the Nissan Laurel mid-size car sold in Central America and the Caribbean before 1992. In 1993, Nissan discontinued the Stanza line, replacing it with the U.S.-made Altima.
