R36 GT-R to Arrive in 2016?

An earlier drawing calling out 2017 as the next GT-R. 

I file this in my bullshit file. Even though it's coming from Motor Trend, 2016 MY is very close(we have 2014 MY on the ground now), and from what I have heard, Nissan is very early in designing the next generation car.  Development on the R35 started around 2000/2001. The R35 wasn't released until 2007 in Japan. So a one/two year cycle for an all new car is not likely.

I would suspect that perhaps a modified R35 platform, that might be called an R36 is most likely if they are trying for a 2016 MY refresh. Like the R32 to R33. The R33 is very similar to the R32 underneath. They share driveline, they share many major components. Even from the R32 to R34, many parts cross over between the cars.

So if there is going to be a R36 in 2016, I would think it is just a freshening. Perhaps the R-Hybrid is closer than we think? First off we have the 2015 NISMO coming up at Tokyo in November. for Nissan Skyline GT-R and GT-R parts.
