DETROIT — Nissan revealed a sport sedan concept vehicle at the auto show this week, freshening up a family-friendly segment that has been among the industry’s most competitive in recent years.
From its aggressive grille to its muscular rear, Nissan’s sport sedan concept foreshadows the styling of the automaker’s next generation of sedans, probably starting with the replacement for the midsize Maxima.
The bold sedan also builds on the styling of the Resonance concept SUV that starred on Nissan’s stand at the 2013 Detroit show.
The lines of the hood and the dipping chrome bar across the grille constitute what Nissan calls its V-motion style, while boomerang-shaped taillights wrap around the rear fenders from the sedan’s sides to its rear. The sedan also has a sharply raked windshield and low roofline.

Matula, who is currently a SVP for LiveDeal (LIVE), has a history of association with penny stock failures. An interesting angle is his tie to a lawyer in Las Vegas, Michael Balabon, who purports to have two separate practices, including a bankruptcy/divorce practice and an employment law practice who has acted as Registered Agent for many of these companies. I was unable to reach anyone at either office on several occasions. In any event, Balabon is the registered agent for PLPL. Coincidentally, he served in that role for NVLX as well as well as all of the former subsidiaries and partners the firm used (the new Medical Marijuana Sciences subsidiary too). Recall that the predecessor to PLPL was Diamond Ranch, and Balabon was the RA there as well. Matula has served in I.R. roles for perpetual failures like VelaTel Global (VELA.PK).

It’s a rarity that I reiterate an idea I’ve previously opined… particularly one that I only published just a couple of days earlier. The fact that I’m going to do so with AvWorks Aviation Corp. (OTCMKTS:SPLI) – perhaps better known to some as Vapor Group – should tell you how important it is to re-convey the message. Here goes…

It’s admittedly scary to try and catch a falling knife, but sometimes it’s worth the risk. Case in point? AvWorks Aviation Corp. (OTCMKTS:SPLI) …. better known as Vapor Group. Without knowing more about the stock, the sheer fact that SPLI has fallen nearly 90% since March 26th – with about a third of that coming today alone – the stock would be best left avoided by nearly any trader. For the small group of savvy traders that know the tell-tale signs and know how the market really works, however, AvWorks Aviation, or Vapor Group, may be in a prime buying situation today…. yes, even in the midst of this bloodbath.

Yet there is a fourth major competitor in the commercial aircraft market — Bombardier (NASDAQOTH: BDRAF ) — and it has its own advanced-technology airplane. The company’s CSeries plane is expected to make its first flight as early as this week. Yet the CSeries put up a goose egg at the Paris Air Show, failing to notch a single order. While Bombardier has nearly 200 firm orders for the CSeries, the company will rapidly burn through that backlog once it starts CSeries mass production.
