And now, a dispatch from the Potentially Upsetting News Department: a recent Nissan trademark application may indicate the GT-R could go hybrid in the future.
Justin Berkowitz over at Car and Driver has the scoop on this recently-registered "Pure Drive R-Hybrid" badge. Check out the "R" on that logo. Doesn't that look an awful lot like the famous "R" that has been on the Skyline and Nissan GT-R since the 1980s? And as Justin notes, the "R" has also been used on the SE-R models as well, and more recently on the Juke R.
