My Grandmother has the 4 cylinder version of this car, in bright red, so not a granny car. My cousin has a silver one with a V6 and a factory spoiler, she loves it, she says it's fast.

I drove one of these a few years back and was pretty stunned at how quick they are. Virtually no torque steer which was a major problem with previous generations.
As fast as a Cobalt SS.. no. But still a very quick granny car. Problem is that the majority of these have the god awful CVT tranny.
VW Veyron SS 12y ago
I find it hard to imagine that this car can do 1/4 mile in 14 seconds. The European VW CC with 296 bhp, lighting fast 6 speed DUAL CLUTCH transmission, launch control, and AWD is listed at 14.0 1/4 mile. This rather primitive Altima has almost none of those technologies to help its 1/4 mile time.

The 2010 3.5SR with TCS and VDC should set some interesting lap times, probably better than the Cobalt SS.

1/4 mile = 14.0s

Look at the lap times on the Acura TL Type S and then look at the potential this has with the Z motor easily tuned for 300hp and the weight. The wheel wells will also take 255/40/18s. All it needs is a new grill and a GT spoiler to look right. I bet this would be faster than the Z set up the same.
