Report: The next-gen Nissan GT-R to spawn two variants?

Some rumors are floating in from down yonder where Australian media, Motoring, claims that the next-generation Nissan GT-R should be made available in two versions: the original coupe and an additional four-door sedan.

Why does Nissan want to morph a sedan out of its next-gen GT-R? To most likely combat industry pinnacles from the very best that Mercedes-AMG, BMW M and Cadillac V has to offer.

It’s also probably a follow-through for the original Q50 Eau Rouge Concept, which was essentially a four-door GT-R with the current GT-R’s power- and drivetrain sitting under the hood of a widened, lowered, and modified Infiniti Q50 sedan. Though as of earlier this year, that project was shelved for the time being.

The current Nissan GT-R has been with us for quite a few years and is beginning to age to the point where a replacement will soon be expected. How soon are we talking? Around 2018, says Motoring.

Do you think a four-door variant to the Nissan GT-R will work?
