Autech (オーテック Ōtekku?) (Autech Japan, Inc. (株式会社オーテックジャパン Kabushiki-gaisha Ōtekku Japan?)), is a pro tuner of Nissan cars.

Autech was founded in 1986 as a subsidiary of Nissan Motor Co. Ltd.. Nissan named Shinichiro Sakurai, the former general manager of Nissan's Advanced Vehicle Design Department, as president designate of the new subsidiary. The company sells the cars through Nissan dealers rather than through other means.
