But, as soon as it appeared, reports out of Detroit hinted at one other potential evolution of the concept’s sharp lines: the next-generation GT-R.
No sooner reported than rendered, Hungarian graphics gun X-Tomi has produced a powerful new vision of what we might see before the decade is out.
X-Tomi’s take on the sedan-cum-coupe is a simple but effective take: the existing concept’s front-end already looks the part, while dropping the rear doors and adding a squared-off GT-R tail completes the picture.
On the technology front, the next GT-R is expected to embrace electricity-boosted hybrid power, joining a growing number of sports cars benefiting from similar systems.
Adding credence to those reports, the carmaker is understood to have registered the name and design for a new ‘Pure Drive R-Hybrid’ badge.
It could be sometime before we see the R-Hybrid badge appear on a production model however, with the next GT-R not expected to debut until around 2017.
