Nissan says we must “keep faith” in the future of the GT-R

The new generation of the model with the intra factory R36 index will have significant technical changes compared to today’s “aging” car. When will the long-awaited new event be finally presented? Only Nissan knows this.

The Japanese supercar Nissan GT-R has existed since the end of 2007, making it one of the oldest sports cars in the market today. It has been updated several times over an unusually long life cycle, but it is still built on a 12-year platform. The next generation of the model has been under development for quite some time, and there are such opinions that we will not see the Nissan GT-R (internal R36 index) in the near future.

The overseas edition of Top Gear had the opportunity to talk with Nissan’s board member, who was responsible for planning, Philip Klein, who wanted to talk a little about the supercar and why we should be patient.

When asked by a journalist about whether the GT-R supercar has a future in the Nissan model range, Mr. Klein said: “Yes, you must maintain faith, because we do! The driving experience is very high on our list of priorities. Electric cars are very fun to drive. And we are actively electrifying our gasoline power units. ”

  Further, Mr. Klein clarified that engineers are “working hard on various options” in relation to the power unit, adding that the current standards for the level of emissions of harmful substances are the main factor. If you read between the lines, it may mean that the new GT-R will be electrified in some way to comply with more stringent emissions laws. Klein says that Nissan “protects a sports car” in the sense that it is doing everything possible to keep it in the company’s model range and at the same time bring it into full compliance with more stringent rules.

Not so long ago, we wrote that the 1100-strong Nissan GT-R accelerated to a maximum speed of 378 km / h.
