Next generation of Nissan GT-R should be available from 2013 image

Nissan’s high performance sports car – the Nissan GT-R could be possible replaced with an new R36 version in 2013.

when VP of global product planning Andy Palmer paid a flying visit to show his support for the GT-R programme lead by Kazutoshi Mizuno.

Unsurprisingly, Andy also confirmed to PistonHeads that the next-generation GT-R will be an evolution of the current platform, and will therefore retain the twin-turbocharged V6 and rear transaxle configuration.

“In that respect, it’s not going to be a massive one-off investment,” Palmer told PH. “It’s more a case of putting a bit of money into the programme every year, to make sure we keep the GT-R where it needs to be.”
