As noted by the expert, the experience of evolutionary development of sports cars for many years the Japanese Corporation has: for example, the “fundamental architecture” Skyline R32 and R34 remains unchanged, although the first debut of the model took place in the late 1980s, and the release of the second continued until the early 2000s.
Conceptual model of the Nissan GT-R R35 debuted in 2005, and serial variation was revealed in 2007. In 13 years on the Assembly line, the car has undergone several restyling. In the current time period the cost of a 570-horsepower Nissan GT-R is almost 2 times lower than the Porsche 911 Turbo S series 991.2 – Japanese sports car in the American market costs between 113 $ 500, while the German coupe from 192 000 dollars.
Although the Nissan Corporation, trying to find a positive in the long lifecycle of the model, the volume of sales of the GT-R is reduced: for example, in the Japanese market last year, bought a sports car 766 – 26% lower than in 2017, as U.S. sales over the same period decreased by 43%.
The new generation GT-R and other “longevity” coupe Z-series are already being developed. But the Japanese automaker reported: in the media there are conflicting information about the platform of future sports cars and the timing of the appearance on the market.
