It is fitting to greet the 2014 Nissan GT-R the same way Captain Jack Sparrow greeted the Kraken in Pirates of the Caribbean: "'Allo, beastie." It's a matter of very minor tune-up for the monster, though, the 2014 GT-R moving things on by just couple of degrees or so.

Performance responsiveness has been finessed with new fuel injectors and a new oil baffle pan, and each hand-built engine gets a plaque with the builder's name. Nissan says the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 for 2014 gets injected with 15 more horsepower and 15 more pound-feet of torque, but the 545 hp and 463 lb-ft are the same as the 2013 model listed on Nissan's web site. Compared to 2012, however, both numbers are up by 15.

It's love-it-or-else looks are unchanged, but inside, the Premium model gets revised color and stitching; the Black Edition gets new accents and the option of a Premium Interior Package with Red Amber color semi-aniline leather. Nissan hasn't mentioned any price increases – the 2013 models came in at $96,820 for the Premium and $106,320 for the Black Edition, plus $1,000 for destination and handling.

It hits dealerships in January of next year. It's in our gallery of high-res photos right now.

      This was a value at 72,900 (what I paid in July, 2008). Not so much at $100k - I'd get (and am getting) a Porsche. $100k to sit at a Nissan dealership and get Altima loaners - no dice.

      People complaining about the price increase over the last few years should understand that it's largely the effect of the weakened dollar vs yen exchange rate; five years ago a dollar would buy 110 yen, today it buys just above 80 which is just about 30% less. Since GTR production is exclusively in Japan, there is not much they can do to alleviate that. Similarly the dollar vs euro rate has favored the dollar over the last five years, giving companies like Porsche a little more of an edge.

        can't really say the 911 has had any changes for like what a 1/2 a century now. still looking as ugly as ever but everyone wants one...... and i do as well... One this this car did though is it forced both Porsche and Ferrari to up their game as when it came out it destroyed both the 911 (every variant of it) and the F360/430. so I am glad it exists and i'm glad Nissan thinks purpose over style, as if this became good looking you'd have to shell out more for it now for that they can just put this powertrain in the G coupe if i had the cash i'd have Jay Leno's garage worth of cars

      Those strip LED's inserted in the worst possible way. This car became dated really quick.

      Well, year over year updates seems to be the trend among the three greats. Namely the GT-R, the 911 and the corvette.

        The GT-R will get yet another revision before 2014. For 2013, the GTR totally kills all 911s.

          have to agree here,..while i hate the gtr!...[just not my thing,..i'm a manual kinda guy,..so i love my manual 911's],..this thing crushes any 911 short of the turbo s in 0-60 times,..it is a performance supercar bargain,...and while it's not for me,..i'm glad it's being made,...they don't sell many,..[my 911's now outsell it by a whopping 8 to 1 margin now,...800 911's to 85 gtr's nationwide for nov. 2012,...], folks don't seem to like it for the myraid reasons already discussed,..[perceived as too robotic,...overpriced "nissan",..etc., etc.,..], it smokes my porsches for lunch on a straight-away!,..just not a great track car,..but i certainly respect the gtr for what it can put down,...i'm sure porsche will make sure their 911 turbo,..or for sure their turbo s will smoke the gtr,..but look at all that extra coinage you need to spend for the porsche to do that!,...my biggest fear for the gtr is that nissan/renault will tire of it's dismal sales figures, and kill it off,..but,..this old 911 guy sure respects the gtr for what it has accomplished in it's short life span thusfar...

      How anyone could pay $100,000 for such a pedestrian car is beyond me. I don't care how fast it is, at $100K you better be selling something more than just fast, and it better not have a low end name like "Nissan" attached to the back. It was a stretch at $75K, but now it's just ridiculous.

        pedestrian car?!!!....REALLY?!!!,...i loath the thing,..but one thing the car ain't,..is PEDESTRIAN!,..i mean,..even i, who dislike it for being something of an "automaton",..and a very robotic, computer generated,..overly "nannied" car,..consider the thing to be a bonified supercar!,..sure,..it's not this old porschephiles cup of tea,..[as i said,..it's too clinical for me,..and i love my manual 911's], but,..it's certainly a bargain for the performance!,..the only porsche that beats this thing is the 911 turbo s,..at quite a heftier price tag,...the thing is a robotic beast,..and serves it's purpose very well!,...unfortunately for nissan,..not many seem to like it,..[i mean,..those that can actually afford it!,..it has lots of pubescent admirers,...the play-station generation,..who, sadly for nissan,..can't afford the thing,.and those of us who can,..do tend to opt for our porsches or vettes,..or beemer m3's and such],..it's sales numbers are dismal,..but, this thing ain't pedestrian!,..not in the least,...it's actually forced my car company,..[porsche], to have to up their ante,.and make a better car,.so,..good for the gtr!,..still would never buy it,..but i respect it for what it is...

      Is it a DOT mandate that every manufacturer or cars. video cameras, coffee makers etc have a 'Black Series'?

        Because a White Series would be racist

      You know what it was missing before, 2% peak power... or you could listen to the customers about ride quality. Nah, you got it though Nissan :)
