2016 Nissan GT-R is an end of design till 2020?

Recommended Posts

Just bumped an unbelievably beautiful looking Nissan GT-R (see below) that supposed to be coming in 4 different engine specs in 2016 version with hugely variable pricing (almost by 50%). All great.

But I also read that this design is gonna be unchanged till 2020, is it true....? If I am not wrong this is the almost a same design since 2012 with minor facelift and adding few inches to the body length, then why Nissan have no plan to add new shape for 8 years for a flagship sports marquee.....?

This GTR is even more sexier than any other German Sports Car. Thanks for picking the good pics.

About the design life, I am really not surprise as there are companies who have been dragging the same design for 10-15 years with minor facelifts: Land Crusier 100, Nissan Patrol, Mustang, Mercedes SLK, BMW Z3 etc and so many

More importantly after seeing the price difference I am curious to know the 0-100 difference from 100K -150k GT-R. I guess regular was 3 ish seconds....?????

IMHO, GT-R is over hyped and corvette is understated. If I have to choose with that kind of money I will put my bet on vette although I am not big fan of american standard cars, but they do good with their musle cars.

      BMW's partnership with Toyota, developing a way to compress hydrogen at ultra-low temperatures just to increase its storage volume, using as a base a fuel cell stack developed by Japan’s largest automaker. Amazing!! I am definitely looking ahead on this note??
