Reports coming out of Japan suggest that the next-generation model of the Nissan GT-R will go hybrid. According to Japan’s BestCar magazine, the Nissan GT-R will now come with an electric-motor capable of producing 160-hp, which will work in conjunction with the GT-R V6 twin turbo engine.

Sources suggest that the model will produce an overall output of 600-hp.

We’re not sure if the hybrid GT-R will improve fuel-economy or whether it will allow an electric-only driving mode. Stay tuned for more details.
