Nissan Teases New GT-R
Anyone would tell you that Nissan is a great automaker. While all of its cars are fierce contenders in their respective segments, it’s undeniable that the Nissan GT-R is one of the most enviable and impressive vehicles that the brand builds. This week at the New York Auto Show, the brand is expected to reveal the latest generation of the GT-R, and in the great tradition of elaborate reveals we have been given a teaser image.
The Nissan GT-R is totally worthy of all of this attention, with each vehicle being handcrafted by a specially-chosen team of engineers in Japan. Each engine even bears a nameplate sporting the signature of the builder who assembled it. The car has been given the nickname “Godzilla” and has its own enthusiastic fan base.
If the average picture is worth 1,000 words, then this teaser image is worth at least twice that. The dark photo shows the silhouette of the upcoming model, the illuminated taillights and highlighted Nissan badge. While the automaker didn’t give much up in the image and corresponding gif (which Nissan calls a cinemagraph), it was just enough of a taste to get our minds whirling. For instance, we know the iconic taillights remain, but what about the unique headlights? Is that silhouette wider or narrower than the current generation? Will the new Nissan GT-R have a light-up logo?
It’s okay, we’re totally fine. But we’re counting down the hours until tomorrow, when the sheet will be finally ripped off of the new Nissan GT- R and we can stop losing sleep with our guesses. We just hope the sheet comes off the GT-R and we don’t have a repeat of the Nissan Titan Warrior snag in Detroit.
