Report: Nissan GT-R’s new manager wants to expand production of the sports coupe

Nissan’s GT-R sports car manager recently changed hands. The original individual Kazutoshi Mizuno, who was also referred to as “Father of the GT-R,” was just succeeded by Kinishi Tanuma following Mizno’s retirement. According to a new report from AutomotiveNews, word is that Tanuma is already planning for an increase in production for the next-generation GT-R.

In a recent interview, while on a scouting mission so he “can travel around talking to the dealers and talking to people who drive the car,” Mizuno said that he wants to learn more about “the largest market for the GT-R,” North America.

“This is my task,” replied Mizuno, when asked the question if Nissan could build more GT-Rs, but he failed to comment further.

Production is currently limited because Nissan exercises great diligence when engineering the GT-R. For instance, all of the GT-R’s motors are hand assembled in a hermetically sealed room, by four special “takumi,” or master craftsmen.

Head on over to AutomotiveNews to see the interview.
