Report: Nissan’s next-gen GT-R and 370Z could get new autonomous driving tech

AutoExpress recently sat down with Nissan’s Global Vice President for Research and Advanced Engineering, Takao Asami. And in that sit-down, AE learned Nissan is interested in equipping the next-generation GT-R and 370Z sports cars with autonomous driving tech.

Asami stated it was a plan to try and “extract more capability and improve performance” of the sports cars and given both the GT-R and 370Z are seen as flagship models in a sense, it would be an ideal spot to show off the technology.

Nissan recently introduced their new Piloted Drive program, research and developing autonomous driving tech with the current generation of Nissan LEAF.

Despite the push for autonomous driving tech, Nissan’s CEO, Carlos Ghosn said they’re not interested in launching a fully-autonomous car, adding the driver will be able to take full control of the vehicle at his or her desire with the latest program.
