The actual Nissan GT-R is a long-lived car: it debuted in 2007, so it is produced for 13 years. Rumors about the preparation of the next generation appear regularly, but there are few specifics about it. In a recent interview with Automotive News, Nissan's Chief Operating Officer Ashwani Gupta said that there is not much time left to wait for the next generation.
According to Gupta, the company is in the process of a major upgrade of its model range in the U.S.. This includes the GT-R. The new flagship sports car should appear in 2023.
Also, a representative of the Japanese brand noted that Nissan is considering the possibility of installing a hybrid transmission, focused on performance, said portal drom.ru. It will be able to recuperate kinetic energy, and then let it be accelerated. A similar technology is used in the sports prototype GT-R LM Nismo class LMP1-H, used in Le Mans.
It is noteworthy that both statements contradict some rumors from last year. In particular, a year ago it was reported that the current Nissan GT-R can be kept on the conveyor until 2027.
It is likely that the changes taking place within Nissan have led to the fact that the project of the new GT-R decided to move to an earlier date. Although the deep crisis in the company does not favor increased investment in the development of "image" models.
