Despite previous information that suggested otherwise, Edmunds has confirmed that a next-generation Nissan GT-R is still planned for production, but the all-new version of the supercar won't arrive until 2018.
Our latest information was obtained during a recent visit to Nissan's R&D center in Atsugi, Japan.
Originally, the second generation of the GT-R was scheduled to arrive in 2015. Part of the reason for the delay is that the chief engineer and product specialist of the GT-R, Kazutoshi Mizuno had left the company. We now know that Mizuno took a leave of absence because of health problems, but has since returned to the company. He is again at the helm of the GT-R's development team, and was involved with the GT-R's recent class-winning effort at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring.
