New Nissan GT-R Expected Early Next Decade, Will Be Previewed By A Concept

Having been around since 2007, the GT-R is currently one of the oldest cars that’s still being sold – although, to be fair, it has received numerous upgrades from Nissan to stay relevant.

Throughout the years, tere have been many talks about a new generation, but until now, the Japanese automaker has remained tight lipped about it, commenting only that we won’t see a replacement any time soon.

Nonetheless, even if development is likely in its early stages, an all-new Nissan GT-R is indeed coming. And, according to IndianAutosBlog, who spoke to the brand’s Senior VP for Global Design, Alfonso Albaisa, it will be previewed by a show car.

Albaisa didn’t go into specifics when talking about the successor of the R35, as he refrained to saying “naturally”, when asked whether the new GT-R will be previewed by a concept.

Previously, Albaisa had said that the new GT-R would be the best in its class and “the fastest super sports car in the world” and that its styling would take no cues from the recently launched GTR-50 concept.

Expected early next decade, it will be underpinned by a new platform, which will likely support electrification. Although this is still officially debated inside Nissan, the next GT-R will most probably go down the hybrid route after all, with a new twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine paired to electric motor(s) or a KERS-like system.

The total output of the car should sit north of the 600-horsepower mark, given that the current one has a healthy 562hp – and the Nismo will be even more powerful.

    I did not realise the GTR was this old, no wonder it is outclassed by everybody now.

    See you in eight years, Nissan. Hopefully you’ll have a new Z out by then.

      Z: Don’t hold thyne breath.

    • Even if the Z turn out to be sporty crossover?

  • Finkployd

    I just hope it ll look nothing like this fugly concept

    • ErnieB

      Agreed!

  • when the GT-R came out it shamed more expensive cars by a lot… Now it became more and more expensive, its price is hard to justify. The Next generation better have performances of more expensive cars, doesn’t even need to be faster than the current car, just lighter? More fun? And cheaper? Basicly be what people hoped the new NSX would be.

    Not sure what the GTR in that rendering is trying to be save for all over the place outrageous. Hope they class it up a bit in final form.

    • It’s just a design for Gran Turismo, that’s why it’s outrageous.

  • Hopefully Nissan can do it right again like R36, Not sure about the price tho, probably will getting expensive as the years gone by.
