According to Hiroshi Tamura, Nissan’s chief product specialist, development of the GT-R Nismo is on schedule in Japan. However, the company’s statement doesn’t tell a more precise timetable regarding the supercar’s unveiling.

"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."

Little is known about the 2014 Nissan GT-R Nismo, but recent reports claim the supercar will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in only two seconds and will receive an updated exhaust system and carbon fiber trim.
