|Infiniti Essence Show car. Built on a Nissan GT-R Chassis|
The latest news reported by Car Magazine is that Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn has at least been talking about the possibility of a Nissan GT-R powered Infiniti supercar.
So, its not something that is happening right now, does that mean five years, eight years out? 2016, 2017, 2018 timeframe? I would be surprised to see the current GT-R last that long in production with the VR38DETT. If they drag it out that long, will it be direct injection, some kind of mild hybrid, 7 speed, by 2017-2018? They are going to need something to be able to comply with ever increasing emissions, and CAFE standards.
