2017 Nissan GT-R Realistically Rendered

Nissan is an automaker with many facets. There’s the one that makes little cars for the affordable car market and the side that makes a $100,000 supercar on a tight budget. They’re also one of the leaders in the electric car market and have just created a new design language for its three new SUVs: Qashqai, Rogue and X-Trail.

All these elements could potentially come together in a single car, their flagship model of course, the one everybody thinks when Nissan is mentioned. The next generation of Ferrari-slayer cold come in 2016 or 2017. Development hasn’t even started yet, since engineers were so busy making the current one, the R35 GT-R, into the fastest machine out there.

But eventually, the R35 will have to be retired, and its replacement might look a little bit like this. Wild-Speed created this rendering based on the new design language seen on the SUVs we mentioned. This is obvious in the grille and the headlights that look like a squashed L.

The 2017 GT-R could also have electric engines to improve efficiency and draw attention to an increasing lineup of Nissan EVs. Some might see this as a bad move, but supercar electrification is clearly the direction this industry is headed in.
