The Nissan GT-R has been on the market so long that if it could talk it would probably just rant about how everything went to shit after Liberty Lunch closed down, but it’s still an unbelievably fast slayer of giants. And in addition to a raft of updates for 2017 it’s getting a new Nismo version as well. Get ready to…
It’s a sad day for car enthusiasts as, last night, two dozen rare imports left this earth headed for Jalop heaven in a warehouse fire, The Drive reports. We fear that among the victims may be some classic JDM Nissan Skyline goodness.
Some “lost footage” of Paul Walker driving a Mine’s Motor Sports tuned 600 horsepower Nissan GT-R turned up, and it’s just six minutes of the late Fast & Furious actor having a blast.
Nissan put the Japanese drift champion behind the wheel of a tuned, rear-wheel drive 2016 Nissan GT-R to break the Guinness World Record for the fastest drift ever recorded. The result: a 30-degree drift at insane 190 miles an hour.
Texas doesn’t screw around: they like things big, and they like things powerful. So when the cowboys at T1 Race Development got their hands on a Nissan GT-R, they Texas-ified the crap out of it.
Sometimes automaker Twitter accounts can post cool stuff. This morphing video of Nissan GT-R generations makes me nauseous though. [Nissan on Twitter]
We know that the Nissan GT-R’s twin-turbo V6 engine is hand-built, but what we may not know is who those hands belong to. At this year’s New York Auto Show, Nissan brought three Takumi, or master craftsmen, along with them to build a GT-R engine right on the show floor. We recorded it in real-time as it happened and…
The very best cars don’t come from bean counters, they come from true car people. And Hiroshi Tamura’s car guy credentials are unassailable.
Hey, you kids like the Nissan GT-R? Of course you do. Be sure to be on Jalopnik at 10:30 a.m. EST today, because Nissan’s chief product guy for the GT-R Hiroshi Tamura will be around to answer your questions. Ask him whatever you want then about the 2017 GT-R, Skylines, his own 600 HP R32, and anything else that might…
Amidst all of the Facebook Live broadcasts we’ve been doing here at the New York Auto Show, we couldn’t help but salivate over all the gorgeous Skylines Nissan has on display.
You may find this hard to believe, but the 2017 model year will mark the 10th year of production for the Nissan GT-R. It’s been around a whole decade now, and it’s still one of the cars you’d least want to drag race. While it’s getting toward the end of its run, Nissan’s keeping it fresh the usual way: more power,…
Nissan wants to get us amped-up about the New York Auto Show, so they released a dark teaser image of a Nissan GT-R. Will Nissan throw their corporate buck-toothed grille on Godzilla? Maybe! Probably! Next week we’re likely going to get a glimpse of what may be the current-generation GT-R’s final stand before it turns…
Apparently when the Spa-Francorchamps track is too snowy to race cars on, it opens up for “other activities.” Like strapping a tow rope to a Nissan GT-R, a snowboard to your feet, and hanging on for dear life.
We haven’t heard much about the inevitable next-generation GT-R supercar, but we can expect it’s going to offer ballistic abilities to those lucky enough to drive it, particularly on racetracks. Nissan says why do that when you can sit in it and have it drive you around the racetrack. Huh?
Renault took a look at their contracts, decided that the Renault–Nissan Alliance entitles them to have the GT-R’s twin turbo V6, so Renaultsport built the best mid-engined race car around it to get something that’s faster than a GT3 GT-R.

The Nissan GT-R is a tricky car to understand. That is, if you go on the words of car reviewers alone.
I am proud to announce that I have officially sold my Nissan Skyline GT-R. This means I will no longer accidentally open the passenger door to my normal car when I’m trying to go somewhere.
