There have been some plans stating that the company wishes to release a successor for the R35 GT-R in the near future. But latest rumours suggest that those plans might have to wait as Nissan CEO, Carlos Ghosn, has yet to approve the next GT-R.
Although Ghosn was one of the key supporters of the current R35 GT-R, there might be a possibility that the next GT-R may never be approved. Some of the reasons given were Nissan’s current focus on environmentally friendly electric cars, stricter emissions regulations and sales of the current model starting to slow.
The company managed to sell close to 6000 units of the R35 GT-R in the United States and so far this year, the company managed to sell only 583 units. Another key indication that there might not be a next-gen GT-R is that the car’s chief engineer, Kazutoshi Mizuno (pictured above), has retired. As of now, Nissan has yet to confirm or comment on this rumoured report.
