The second generation Nissan GT-R’s launch date has been changing back and forth; reports have said it to be coming as early as 2017 and as late as 2019. But now a report from Motoring.com.au – the same publication which reported last month the year to be 2018, says that the all-new Nissan GT-R won’t arrive before 2020.
Responding to the publication’s previous report stating 2018 as the launch year, Richard Emery, CEO and Managing Director at Nissan Australia, said that the next-gen GT-R isn’t likely to arrive this decade.
“To be honest the company is not even talking about it,” Mr. Emery said.
“We are close to the life cycle in terms of cars now and in the future. In terms of direct conversation around GT-R, it’s not on the horizon. It’s certainly not 2018, and I can’t see it even in 2019. It’s not on the product plan list for that period.”
Revealing the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo in June last year, the company said that the concept “gives hints as to how a supercar of the future might look.” This concept is said to inspire the design and styling of the 2020 Nissan GT-R, although nothing can be believed to be final as of now.
