Although the new 2014 Nissan GT-R Nismo has not made it`s official debut yet, we already have reports coming about the next generation edition of the vehicle. It was expected for the revised model to be developed by Nissan but it seems that Nismo is offered the chance to really make a name for themselves by redesigning the car.
The existing R35 GT-R was developed in a separated of Nissan`s engineering department under the supervision of Kazutoshi Mizuno who has recently left the company. The reasons behind his sudden retirement are somewhat wrapped in mystery. Of course, Mizuno had reached the age of retirement, but there are rumors implying that he left in dissatisfaction with Nismo`s increasing control over the GT-R range.
Of course, nothing is official yet, but Andy Palmer, Nissan Executive Vice President stated that: `As we come to the next generation of GT-R – because that will be a brand-new vehicle – you will probably see a lead coming from Nismo and a follow coming from the passenger car company, rather than the other way round.`
Nismo division have only opened their base in Yokohama last February, but Carlos Ghosn, Nissan – Renault boss has a very busy agenda prepared for them already. Nissan is to launch a new vehicle every year. There are expectations for a range of Nissans developed by Nismo such as the 370Z, the Juke or the March (Micra) which will only be available in Japan.
Since Nissan have shown a great deal of interest for development of electric vehicles, we can expect for the next-gen GT-R to be a hybrid. The company`s ambitions are to gather 15 hybrid autos for their line-up by 2016. Nismo officially informed regarding their collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering for the development of their future car line-up.
The next-in-line 2014 Nissan GT-R Nismo is rumored to be shown next month during the Tokyo Motor Show before hitting the dealerships next year.
