The current Nissan GT-R can last on the assembly line until 2027August 23, 2019
The current Nissan GT-R is a long-lived car: it appeared back in 2007, that is, it has been produced for 12 years. And it’s not about a frame SUV, which can be produced for a long time with minimal updates (hi, Toyota Land Cruiser 200), but about a sports car, which is at the forefront of technological progress. And although earlier representatives of the Japanese brand have repeatedly announced the imminent resignation of Godzilla, it may linger until 2027.
According to the Australian publication Motoring, while the leadership of Nissan has not even decided on the format of the future sports car. Will it be hybrid or fully electric? No one knows the answer.
At the same time, the team headed by Hiroshi Tamura is ready even tomorrow to start developing the next generation, but without the go-ahead, this will not happen. Tamura recalled that for the 2020 model year, the GT-R received minor improvements in terms of the power unit and chassis, but there is no limit to perfection, so the current model will still be upgraded.
“We are only 12 years old. I want to keep this body for as long as possible, ”said Hiroshi Tamura. At the same time, he is confident that the current design will survive to its 20th anniversary without any problems. In other words, the production of the current generation of the Nissan GT-R can be continued until 2027.
