Nissan chief creative officer Shiro Nakamura has revealed the next-generation GT-R is “more than two years away."

Speaking to CarAdvice at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Nakamura said the company hasn't finalized the next-generation GT-R but "I think we’re better to continue to make [an] evolution of today’s [car] rather than switching to something completely different."  He went on to say the company is still "in the process of experimenting" with powertrains for the upcoming model so nothing has been decided as of yet.

While the new GT-R is still a ways off, Nakamura says the current model has the "potential to be better" and some minor changes will be introduced shortly.  The executive downplayed the possibility of performance tweaks but hinted the upgrades could improve the GT-R's handling.
