There has been a lot of talk about this supercar in the past several months. Of course, most reports are about the future of this living legendary. The famous sports car has been around for 12 years, which seems like too long for such an expensive vehicle. Therefore, we are eagerly waiting for any future information about the redesign or future changes. At this point, it looks like a complete overhaul won’t happen that soon and that the 2021 Nissan GT-R definitely won’t feature any particular change.
It looks like the next-year model will continue with familiar design characteristics, although yearly updates are not a strange thing to the Japanese manufacturer. After all, we have seen several updates during this long production cycle, including a major one from a couple of years ago. The 2021 Nissan GT-R shouldn’t come with any particular change, so we expect to see it sometime late in 2020, with the pretty much same price tag.
2021 Nissan GT-R Design
The 2021 Nissan GT-R will carry on with the same design characteristics, that’s for sure. A complete redesign is still far away and we have no doubt that the company won’t bother with bigger changes in the current model. Therefore, we can say that the next year will bring the same overall layout. You may count on the same mechanics, but also on the pretty much same styling. Of course, there’s always enough room for visual updates, but we are pretty sure that we won’t see too many of them.
The same thing goes for the Nismo version. This is a hi-performance version of the GT-R, which isn’t just about more powerful engine, but also about various chassis upgrades, particularly in terms of suspension. Of course, there are numerous distinctive styling details as well.
This aspect of the car shouldn’t come with bigger changes either. We may see a couple of tweaks in terms of interior schemes, but the overall cabin layout should remain pretty much the same. That’s not a bad thing at all. Despite the age, the dashboard looks pretty good. It may not be as luxurious as in some younger rivals, but the overall quality is pretty good. Also, we like the fact that the dash is driver-oriented and that you can find some pretty nice-looking color schemes.
When it comes to comfort, front seats offer great support, but you will feel comfortable after longer trips as well. This is the only supercar that features the second row as well. Still, don’t expect too much, as the rear seats are very tight. Finally, the cargo space goes around 8.8 cubic feet, which sounds pretty good for a supercar. All in all, practicality is definitely a strong point of this model.
When it comes to standard equipment, we might see a couple of additions for the next year. Still, we don’t expect too much, so the list should be pretty similar to the current one. Therefore, count that all models will come standard with things like an 8-inch touch screen, navigation, Apple CarPlay, HD Radio, satellite radio, a CD player, an 11-speaker Bose stereo, Bluetooth, and two USB ports. Also, you may count on proximity keyless entry, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control etc. When it comes to safety, don’t expect too much from this model. The only things you can get are a rearview camera, as well as front and rear parking sensors.
2021 Nissan GT-R Engine
Things under the hood will definitely remain untouched. Therefore, count on a well-known 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, which in the base variant delivers around 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque. The engine comes in pair with a fast-shifting 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which also plays an important role in GT-R’s impressive acceleration. Of course, AWD is standard.
If you prefer something even faster, there is the 2021 Nissan GT-R Nismo version. This is a real track-ready model, which comes with a nice power boost, so a max power goes up to 600 horsepower. Of course, power hump isn’t the only upgrade. There is a completely new suspension setup, as well as new brakes and numerous chassis upgrades.
2021 Nissan GT-R Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2021 Nissan GT-R sometime in the last quarter of 2020. Base models should go around 113.000 dollars. On the other side, the Nismo model should go around 212.000 dollars.
