Illustration for article titled Nissan GT-R: Tons of New Info

A JDM-load of new information on Nissan's new Porsche 911 challenger, the GT-R, is pouring onto the fanboards today. As of tomorrow, preorders of the Japan-market GT-R will commence in Nihon, and Nissan's already launched its global GT-R site. As we once reported, the GT-R will come in three tiers, Base, Black Edition, Platinum Edition, with a 3.8-liter V6 providing the base engine for the lot. Though we still don't have confirmation on the twin-turbo top-ranger, we do know — via the North American GT-R Owner's club — that it'll come in six colors, but only one transmission option.
