2015 Nissan GT-R [w/video]

Although the first Skyline GT-R from Nissan arrived in 1969, in the 46 years since, there have nearly been as many years without a GT-R as with. The first two generations were produced from 1969 to 1972, the next three generations stretched from 1989 to 2002, and the most recent (just plain GT-R in fact, not a Skyline GT-R) has so far run from 2009 to 2015. That's 25 years that the GT-R has been a member of the material world, and 21 that it has lived in purgatorio. Yet out of those 46 years, the birth of the legend and cult of the GT-R happened primarily in five: from 1989 to 1994,... Read More

    1378328220

    Following yesterday's spy photos of the Nissan GT-R Nismo at the Nürburgring, we've been informed that some intrepid spies have captured video of Super Godzilla lapping the track. We aren't sure which turn the first clip is showing, but the second and third are almost certainly the tough right-hander known as Bergwerk. Like the current GT-R, the ...

    1378216680

    We've got some great new images of the Nissan GT-R Nismo circling everyone's favorite testing ground/racetrack, the Nürburgring. The GT-R seen here is camouflaged rather extensively to hide body details, but we can draw a few things from the eight photos our spies have been able to capture. The front bumper has been tweaked for better airflow to the ...

    Spy Shots: 2014 Nissan GT-R spied testing at Nürburgring

    Every year since the Nissan GT-R was released it has either gotten more powerful or more expensive (or both), and the 2014 model year looks to be more of the same. Some new spy photos have surfaced showing the 2014 GT-R testing around the Nürburgring. While details on the new Nissan are a bit scarce, we can't help but wonder whether this will be the ...

    Just when we thought the softer-riding Nissan GT-R SpecM had disappeared for good, the car shows up at the Nurburgring for a little abuse. The crew from Auto Motor und Sport managed to lay their hands on a lengthy video of a few barely-cloaked examples of the car scooting around Green Hell, and everyone's best guess is that the vehicles are a peek at ...

    Spy Shots: Facelifted 2012 Nissan GT-R
    1277146620

    Look closely and use a bit of imagination and it's obvious that Nissan is upgrading the GT-R's front and rear fascias for the 2012 model year. The changes are slight, but they deserve noting. Particularly the new rear bumper, integrated diffuser and sharper flares aft of the rear wheels. The front grille has been revised with a more horizontal opening ...

    One way to win races is to bury the pedal and never lift. It would appear Nissan may be following the same plan with the development of its GT-R. Rather than sit around and let the car's development go cold, Nissan is continuing to refine its bargain supercar slayer. Nürburgring watchers have noticed a seemingly base model GT-R lapping the track ...
