Plenty of GT-R news today, as the Japanese car maker is hard at work trying to improve the current model while developing an all-new one. Next year we are going to get the souped-up Nissan GT-R NISMO, and two years after that, the new Nissan GT-R, which will probably be a hybrid.

The development of the long-awaited Nissan GT-R NISMO is on track in Japan, as the tuning firm – now an official Nissan partner as an in-house performance arm – is enjoying a fair bit of success in Europe.

The sales of JUKE NISMO has already topped 3,700 units in Europe, and it is now joined by the Z NISMO, known as the Fairlady Z Version NISMO in Japan and 370Z NISMO in the U.S. The Z NISMO is now accounting for 15 to 30 percent of Nissan Z model sales depending on market. In Japan the March NISMO is going to be the third model to be added to the range, but in Europe and U.S., it is going to be the GT-R, set for 2014 launch.

“The Nissan GT-R NISMO is the GT-R with which we pursue pure performance,” says Hiroshi Tamura, Nissan GT-R and NISMO Chief Product Specialist. “It is for people who search for true performance with pure motorsports flavor. Its development is on schedule, and I can’t wait to see the model introduced into the markets.”

As for the new generation Nissan GT-R, all we know is based on rumors and speculations, but it’ll probably feature a start/stop system and a hybrid system. But don’t for a second it’s gone green. The hybrid powertrain in the Godzilla will be designed first and foremost for power. Fuel efficiency is a byproduct of that.
