Lamley Daily: Tomica Limited Vintage Datsun Bluebird 1600SSS Rally – the Lamley Group
Model: Tomica Limited Vintage Datsun Bluebird 1600SSS
Line: 5000km to Glory
Where to get it: It pops up occasionally at Japan Booster
Why it’s in the collection: It is hard to ignore a Datsun Bluebird Rally. Many diecast companies have done one, and I have a good number of them. But the end-all is TLV. And here it is.
TLV has been taking on a few iconic Japanese racing cars, from the Super Silhouettes to the Mazda 787b. The Bluebird Rally fits in, although this replica is a little different. It is actually from a movie, 5000km to Glory. Real racing footage was used, and this car was actually entered in races, but there are more famous “real” versions of the Rally, and one is coming from TLV next year.
But this is a nice start. And it’s a TLV so yeah, I’m in.

Infiniti debuts breakthrough engine technology in new QX50 | Ars Technica
It’s the world's first production variable-compression ratio engine.
The new Infiniti QX50 might not seem the most natural fodder for these pages, but its engine surely is. Just introduced to the world at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the crossover is powered by the world's first production variable-compression ratio engine. It's a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder called the VC-Turbo, and it represents a huge leap forward for internal combustion engine technology.
By altering the distance that the piston head travels within its cylinder, the VC-Turbo can operate with a compression ratio as low as 8:1 (for maximum performance) or as high as 14:1 (for maximum efficiency). The engine is as powerful as the older naturally aspirated 3.5L VQ V6 in the previous QX50 and makes more torque, but it's also smaller, lighter, and a lot more fuel-efficient. It can even switch between the Atkinson and regular combustion cycles.
The variable-compression ratio technology works as follows. Instead of just having a connecting rod between the crankshaft and piston head, there's now a multilink arrangement around the crankshaft, with the con-rod attached to one end. At the other end is an actuator arm that's connected to a harmonic drive. It's this harmonic drive that controls the distance that the piston travels within the cylinder by changing the angle of the multilink and, therefore, the top-dead-center position of the piston.

Nissan Debuts Seven Star Wars–Themed Show Cars | News | Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
Many hard-core Star Wars fans enjoy dressing up as their favorite characters in a pastime known as “cosplay.” They have a kindred spirit in Nissan, which is pretty obsessed with the sci-fi franchise. The company already has placed a Rogue in a Star Wars–inspired movie scene for a TV ad, launched a Star Wars–themed Rogue special edition, and put an X-Wing fighter costume on the Rogue earlier this year. For the Los Angeles auto show, more Nissan models got to join the fun as the brand trotted out seven vehicles decked out in full Star Wars regalia.
This time, the concepts were dreamed up by the team from Lucasfilm, an outgrowth of the studio’s marketing partnership with the Japanese automaker. They bear the names of the Star Wars characters or vehicles that inspired them. The otherworldly Nissans include this 2018 Nissan Rogue, labeled Poe Dameron’s X-Wing with BB-8...

Christian Meunier named Automotive News All Star
His task centered on pushing decision-making to Nissan's sales regions about what, when and how much to advertise. He took a more granular view of its U.S. markets, allowing Dallas to behave differently from Atlanta, and liberating Phoenix to pursue different goals from Denver. He even opened the door for one part of Los Angeles to operate differently from another part of the city.

Jeremy Tucker named Automotive News All Star
Nissan has found a sweet spot with the Rogue, and Jeremy Tucker has helped push the crossover to the masses in a series of high-profile promotions. The automaker capitalized on the conveniently titled movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story last year with a marketing collaboration that allowed the brand to tout the Rogue's safety technologies in commercials alongside imagery from the film. Nissan formed a team of six dealers from its marketing subcommittee to provide insight on how to make the most of its Star Wars effort. But one Star Wars alignment wasn't enough. Nissan is back for another tie-in with the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Infiniti KR20 Variable Compression Turbocharged Engine Prototype Drive | Review | Car and Driver
Another life extension for internal combustion.
Every new electric-car announcement is touted as another nail in the coffin of the internal-combustion engine. But the internal-combustion engine keeps fighting back. The latest counterpunch comes by way of the new 2019 Infiniti QX50, expected to hit the market in early 2018. It will be powered by a technically fascinating engine that promises to improve its fuel efficiency by about 10 to 15 percent compared with the best of its competitors, while also delivering better performance.
The engine is the new KR20 variable-compression-ratio inline-four, dubbed VC-Turbo (or VC-T) by Infiniti, for Variable Compression Turbo. A development of the MR20 2.0-liter four-cylinder, it is fitted with a complex mechanism that can vary the volume of the combustion chamber by changing the relative position of the piston over its stroke to adjust the compression ratio between 14.0:1 and 8.0:1.

Nissan Hints at Building New U.S. Auto Plant Within Five Years - Bloomberg
“At some point, we may need it,” Jose Munoz, the chairman of Nissan North America, said Friday in reference to more U.S. production capacity. The addition would have to be a standalone new factory because the company’s existing plants in Tennessee and Mississippi are “maxed out,” Munoz said during an interview in Detroit.
