The Next GT-R Is Slowly Growing Another Set Of Doors


As development moves to America and Europe, Nissan has more surprises coming.

Despiterumors that Nissan had frozen development of the next-gen GT-R,it seems that the company is actually hard at work on this project and also hassome interesting surprises up its sleeve. Speaking to Motoring, a source insidethe company said “R&D for the next GT-R has moved to North America andEurope. Obviously some development work is being done in Japan... But the bulkis now being carried out by Nissan Europe and Nissan USA." Much of this isbeing conducted in conjunction with Williams Advanced Engineering.

As we reported earlier, the insider confirmed that this year's Le Mans GT-R LM Nismo could provide some of the next GT-R's components. More interestingly, he also hinted that a 4-door GT-R could appearalongside the coupe. "Our research has shown that there isa move in high performance car manufacturing towards four-door sedans." Aiming at the likes of Mercedes AMG, BMW M and Audi RS, the GT-R sedan will likely be badged as an Infiniti, and both sedan and coupe will be powered by a detuned version of the Le Mans GT-R LMNismo's 3.0-liter V6 hybrid turbo.
