Nissan Skyline GT-R Hybrid – Coming Soon
The rumour mill is aflame with stories that an upcoming version of the infamous Nissan Skyline GT-R will be offered as a hybrid or even a 100% electric car. The comments began after the GT-R’s chief engineer Kazutoshi Mizuno confirmed at an event in Australia that an alternative power train was in development for the car affectionately nicknamed “Godzilla”.
The performance specifications of any hybrid or electric version of the Skyline would have to be jaw-droppingly impressive to avoid a revolt amongst the car’s rabid fans, most are agreeing that a hybrid drive train would make the most sense but with Nissan’s expertise in the electric car field (the Nissan Leaf is the only electric car currently in mass production) and electric version cannot be ruled out. We’ll keep you posted as further information becomes available.
