Nissans in the Movies—Three Unforgettable Movie Cars

One thing becomes readily apparent when looking at the inventory at Fontana Nissan. Like we’ve seen them somewhere else before, some of the cars and SUVs look strangely familiar. That isn’t too surprising since Nissans happen to be favorites of TV and movie producers for years. Below are a few of our favorite Nissans that made it up to the big time on the little and large-screen.

The 140 Year-Old Nissan GT-R in Elysium

NissanMC-5-1(1)

This incredible vehicle has to make the list simply based on longevity-a 140 year-old car is one thing you don’t run across every day. In the dystopian future realm of Elysium, the haves are now living in splendid isolation on a space station as the have-nots make do over a now-devastated Planet Earth around 2154. Most of us suspected the Nissan GT-R was immortal, but if the filmmakers of Elysium are to be believed, we now have proof positive the cars are good for at the very least 140 years with no major work. (Unless you count the added armor.)

Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 in the Fast and The Furious Movies

NissanMC-5-2(1)

Any fan of your series knows the GT-R is Brian O’Connor’s favorite ride. It is actually especially prominent in the original Fast & Furious movie as well as 2 Fast 2 Furious and also the Fast as well as the Furious: Tokyo Drift. With all the tragic death of actor Paul Walker, fans must stay tuned to discover in case the car remains a series staple inside the new Furious movies. No mention was made of his most well-known character’s favorite car, even though the movie production company recently announced the O’Connor character was being “retired” together with the death of Walker.

Nissan Rogue in the media Show Heroes

The feisty Claire Bennett, who is a “highly evolved” person who is nearly impossible to kill, clearly loves the Nissan Rogue she receives as an early birthday present from her father in the first season of Heroes. The Rogue is quite a bit in evidence even after Claire’s is stolen from the parking lot at her school. Maya, Alejandro, and Derek escape from a Mexican police station in Derek’s car, which just is, you guessed it, another Nissan Rogue.

Whether you are a film maker or a home maker, you’ll find a great selection of Nissans at Corona Nissan. Make sure you check out their super convenient NissanofFontana.com as well.

Incredibly Popular Fictional Cars Featured in TV Shows and Films

“Movies and shows can create icons out of just about anything, not just people. Perfect examples of this are cars. Many vehicles were featured prominently in movies or TV shows as they played large roles which eventually led to them becoming very famous, a lot more famous than the real life cars that they were based on. Here is a look at some of the most well-known.

1. KITT

KITT (short for Knight Industries Two Thousand) was the car and, arguably, the main character from the popular 80s TV show Knight Rider. The car not only featured a lot of great gadgets and sci-fi technology for the time, but also an artificial intelligence which allowed it to talk. KITT became very popular, much more popular than the 1982 Pontiac Trans Am which it was actually based on. The show was responsible for boosting sales of the Trans Am through the roof thanks to people who wanted to drive their very own KITT car.

2. DeLorean

Although the DMC DeLorean does not have a unique name to identify itself by, it is still permanently linked to a movie – Back to the Future. In it, the main characters use their DeLorean to travel back in time and then into the future. This movie became extremely iconic and successful and whatever success DeLorean saw was due to it. Even today people buy old DeLoreans with the goal of making them look like the one in the movie.

3. Batmobile

The original one was based off a concept car called Ford Lincoln Futura, even though there are many versions of the Batmobile. The design was so popular that tuning companies started offering the Batmobile package and making other models look like the car in the show.
