The next Nissan GT-R will probably be a hybrid

Rumours of the next next-generation Nissan GT-R will turn to hybrid power have been floating around for a few years now, and while nothing is confirmed yet, a hybrid GT-R feels inevitable. With Nissan unveiling their facelifted 2017 GT-R earlier in the year, they can now turn their attention to the R35's successor which is set to debut in...

How to build the ultimate Nissan GT-R: the N-Attack Pack

Even in standard form, the Nissan GT-R is a car which can out-perform and embarrass much more expensive and exotic supercars. In Nismo GT-R form, it's even faster again. The Nismo GT-R smashed almost every other road car that has ever lapped the Nurburgring circuit, with a time of 7 minutes and 8 seconds. Only the bonkers Porsche 918...

Nissan displays every GT-R ever made at New York motor show

Nissan have put together an incredible display of GT-R vehicles at the New York motor show this year, including immaculate examples of every generation ever made. The first is the "Harosuka" PGC Skyline GT-R which was released in March 1971.

Nissan won’t be building a Mazda MX-5 / Toyota 86 competitor

We've got some bad news for lovers of cheap, lightweight, rear-wheel drive sports cars - Nissan has officially given up on building a production version of their rear-drive IDx concept (pictured), which would have competed with the Mazda MX-5 and Toyota 86.

Nissan planning to facelift the GT-R

Nissan has released a very subtle looking teaser for its updated GT-R, which will be revealed at the 2016 New York Auto Show in April. Aside from giving us a peek at the new rear tail lights, the teaser doesn't really give us any other hints as to what else has changed with the GT-R, but there's a few...

Nissan’s quirky ‘Teatro’ concept car

Nissan unveiled an interesting if not ugly concept car on Monday. It's called the “Teatro for Dayz” (I'm not pulling your leg here) and it contains many features that the next generation of 'digital natives' might demand, including many touchscreens with smart phone connectivity, a camera, and lots of other icons of the modern era. So if you feel...

Current Nissan GT-R could see upgrade

In a few month's time Nissan's legendary R35 GT-R will celebrate its 8th birthday, after being launched in Japan all the way back in December 2007, but to say it is getting long in the tooth might be pushing things a little. Sure, the design is no-where near as fresh as it once was, and it might not be...

Nissan Skyline R34 GT-T Review

There's a bit of a drought at the moment if you’re a Japanese sports car fan. If you're a Honda fan, the sportiest one you can buy is actually a hybrid with 15-inch wheels. The best handling Toyota is a Subaru with only 205Nm torque. There's still a few glimmers of hope left - the Subaru Impreza WRX for...
