Next-Gen Nissan GT-R To Get Autonomous Tech But Will It Be Any Fun?

The R36-generation Nissan GT-R is pinned to receive some form of autonomous driving technology, likely designed to teach owners how to drive better.

During an interview with Car Dealer Magazine in Tokyo, the company’s vice president of product planning, Ponz Pandikuthira said that autonomous tech won’t detract from driver involvement.

“I love cars and driving just as much as you, so I can assure you driverless technology in our most exciting cars will complement the driver, not take away the enjoyment.

“Imagine a scenario where your GT-R is showing you how to drive around a test track, showing you the lines to take, assisting with the steering to make you a better, faster driver. That would still be enjoyable and very exciting,” he said.

The company’s range-topping sports car is already expected to make use of some form of electrification and when combined with autonomous systems, should be the only car of its kind when it arrives later in the decade.

“Who knows when the next GT-R comes along it may have electric power too. That and driverless technology would be very exciting indeed,” Panzdikuthira said.
