Next-Gen Nissan GT-R Set to "Electrify" Fans

We've all been waiting patiently for the latest and greatest Nissan GT-R. Set to arrive near the 2017-2018 model year, the updated "Godzilla" will have some heavy shoes to fill after nearly six years of Nissan supercar perfection. Sitting down with Motor Trend at this past weeks New York Auto Show, North American senior vice president of sales and marketing Jose Munoz let slip that the next-gen GT-R will "electrify" fans around the world "later this year". This clever play on words could preview a hybridized version of the upcoming GT-R with a powertrain borrowed from the Infiniti Essence concept or the Infiniti M35h when it goes into production.
