Nissan considers joining F1 in 2008
The allure of Formula One is simply too hard to resist for most successful car manufacturers. Latest rumours suggest that Nissan might be joining the ranks, and according to an article in French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche, the Japanese auto maker might do a deal with former team owner Alain Prost and be trackside as early as 2008.
This follows from previous reports that suggested that the successful Renault team might simply change its name to Nissan, and also news that Koreaís Hyundai might also be joining F1 in the near future. Nissan would be a very worthwhile addition to the F1 scene - the company has had a long string of successful performance cars over the years, and a Nissan F1 team would go nicely with the launch of the all new GTR, Nissanís most formidable sports car.

Nice piece of news.
But I honestly doubt it.
They already have Renault in F1 and who have achieved a lot. No point in Nissan also joining.
