Report: The Nissan GT-R rumored to be morphed into a hybrid for the next-generation

Nissan had a pretty exciting GT-R/Skyline exhibit at the 2016 New York International Auto Show this year, not only to usher in a heavily revised version of the current car for the 2017 model year, but to remind us that the current car is also soon to be on its way out.

This also means a new generation model is getting closer and closer and there’s a lot riding on Nissan’s shoulders, since the new GT-R will have some pretty big shoes to fill. To make sure this happens, some rumors began floating around suggesting the Nissan GT-R will become a hybrid for the next generation.

Now the idea and concept of a hybridized Nissan GT-R isn’t exactly far-fetched, especially when hypercar automakers have proven that hybrids can be fast and cool, with examples like the Porsche 918 Sypder, McLaren P1, and the LaFerrari.

AutoGuide cited the co-founder of the North American GT-R Owner’s Club, Matt McCulloh, who claimed to have heard the news about the new model being a hybrid, along with details like it will cost from $150,000 to $200,000.

Sounds plausible, but of course, nothing’s set in stone until heard of from the company themselves.
