The answer could come tomorrow.
So the Nissan GT-R may be a few years old (nearly eight, to be exact) but Godzilla is still fully competitive in the supercar world, all things considered. Thing is, its exterior design has hardly changed since its 2007 debut. Most of the updates have been under the hood and rumor has it that Nissan is out to change this for 2017. Could a facelifted GT-R premiere tomorrow at Detroit? We’ll find out very, very soon, but in the meantime AutoGuide has learned a few details as to what a refreshed GT-R could look like.
These new renderings, courtesy of GTRLife, show Godzilla with a revised front end featuring trapezoidal meshed openings and slimmer horizontally-placed daytime running lights. Also note the automaker’s "V-Motion" grille, which is now seen on nearly all new Nissan models. If this facelift does in fact happen, it’s also faire to expect to see a new split five-spoke wheel design and a revised rear-end. Expect for the latter to have sharper taillights and for the lower diffuser to be placed slightly higher on the rear bumper. Now, we recently saw some other renderings of a refreshed GT-R, but we think these latest ones are a bit more realistic. Thoughts?
