Now we just have to wait. 2023, 2024, 2025 …
The Nissan GT-R R35 has been on the market since ancient times. Its manufacturer must consider replacing it, but for the moment, Nissan does not seem in a hurry to renew the one nicknamed Godzilla.
After the renewal of the 370Z, the Japanese manufacturer must now look at its supercar. Until today, he had neither affirmed nor denied the arrival of a new generation. Only here, during the presentation of the Nissan Z Proto, Ivan Espinosa, vice president of product strategy at Nissan, confirmed to Australian journalists that the GT-R lineage will have a sequel and that the R36 generation is well under consideration.
One last edition and then go
That said, Ivan Espinosa does not go further in his statements and prefers not to say too much. It is not a desire on his part to hide things, simply that the manufacturer has not yet fixed the ins and outs of this project so awaited by the amateurs. Vice President Says Anything Can Happen, News Nissan GT-R might as well stay thermal as go green.
We believe that the next GT-R will not be completely electric, as Ivan has said in the past that this technology is not mature enough and that the weight of the batteries could affect the dynamics of the vehicle. Everything leads to believe that the R36 will be hybrid.
The launch date of this new model is quite unclear. It is rumored that the next generation will be ready in 2023, but others say the wait will be much longer because Nissan has not yet started developing its model and this process takes quite a few years. .
In any case, whether it is launched in 2023 or later, we will welcome this novelty with open arms. The Nissan GT-R is a serious contender for supercars European.
