Japanese automaker Nissan has confirmed that the next-generation GT-R supercar will be launched in 2015 as a 2016 model.
The next-generation model would arrive in three years, an unnamed company representative told Motor Trend during the Nissan 360 event, declining to offer further details about the new supercar.

Little is known about the next GT-R, but word has it Nissan could use a hybrid powertrain for the second-generation supercar, after filing a trademark for the "R-Hybrid" moniker.

Meanwhile, Nissan and Nismo are working on a mind-blowing GT-R that's set to arrive in the second half of 2014 with more power than ever and a 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) time of only two seconds.

The current Nissan GT-R is powered by a twin-turbo 3.8-liter engine that delivers 545 HP and 463 lb-ft of torque.
