A Nissan representative has stated during 2013 NYIAS upcoming news about the GT-R will "electrify" fans.

Nissan North America's senior vice president of sales and marketing Jose Munoz mentioned "stay tuned later this year for news that will electrify our legions of GT-R fans worldwide" which means he could be hinting at a hybrid version of the supercar.

Chances are he is referring to the next generation of the model due in 2017 or 2018 which could adopt a reworked hybrid powertrain borrowed from the Infiniti Essence concept or Infiniti M35h, according to a previous report.

In addition, the new GT-R will likely feature as standard cylinder deactivation and stop/start systems, along with a sportier apperance with a new front fascia increasing high-speed stability and also maximizing downforce.

Taking into account Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche have taken the hybrid route for their flagship models, Nissan could opt for the same solution.
