Next Nissan GT-R to Keep Front-Engined 2+2 Formula; Will go Hybrid and arrive in 2018

Nissan won’t take a huge leap of faith with its all-new GT-R, a model that’s set to debut no earlier than 2018. It will remain a 2+2 coupe with its engine at the front; what will change is the style of powertrain, as it’s definitely going to be a hybrid.

This was confirmed to Top Gear by Kazutoshi Mizuno, the “godfather” of the GT-R, as well as Shiro Nakamura, who is Nissan’s Chief Creative Officer. The latter was asked if any of the speculative renderings that had surfaced online had anything to do with the actual new GT-R.

He flatly denied it but did admit there are going to be de design similarities between the Vision Gran Turismo car (pictured) they showed, especially for the front and rear fascias.

As previously mentioned, the all-new GT-R is still at least three years away, as the current model is still in strong demand, and it receives slight updates every year to keep it fresh and desirable until then.
