Nissan is planning to expand GT-R’s production as the model still has a high demand.
Just a few months ago, rumors were saying that the Nissan GT-R is close to leaving the production line but the truth is the exact opposite. According to the guys at Automotive News, the Japanese based automaker is planning to expand Godzilla’s production as the demand for the sports car is still high. Kinishi Tanuma, the new production chief for the GT-R, has replaced Kazutoshi Mizuno, who decided to step down from his position, and the new boss has big plans for the impressive vehicle.
Back in 2012, Nissan has delivered 1,118 units of the GT-R in North America and just in September, this year, the company managed to sell no less than 952 units. 2014 will be an even better year for the GT-R because thanks to some tunes, the sports car will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2 seconds. More details on the upgraded version of the Nissan GT-R, for the 2015 model year, remain unknown for the moment and will probably be announced once the car will be unveiled.
