The Nissan GT-R is by far Japan’s longest-running and most-talked-about supercar. Even in the face of an all-new hybrid NSX and the shrieking Lexus LF-A’s V-10, the magic of the GT-R formula continues to fascinate and captivate car guys and gals across the world.

 
The latest R35 Nissan GT-R is the most accomplished in the family lineage by not only dominating the press in Asia and Australia — where the previous-gen cars were sold — but also taking headlines across America and Europe.
 
And the headlines are good. Not the standard "newcomer tries to beat Porsche, loses" we are all so familiar with. The GT-R is a machine that wins objective and subjective comparison tests against some of the absolute quickest and highest-tech machines in the world.
 
It has taken two generations of 911 Turbo models to get anywhere near the GT-R’s pace, and the $100,000 Nissan also regularly spanks Ferrari’s finest.
 
So much so that Porsche and Ferrari will no longer let one of their cars be in a comparo with the GT-R. Now that is an achievement.
 
So where to go with this legend of a race car? Keep the world-beating pace and all the latest component upgrades from the forthcoming GT-R Nismo, but improve the weight balance, center of gravity, aerodynamics and style.
 
A daunting task, to say the least. Luckily, the TopSpeed artists and graphic design team have created a few exclusive previews of where the GT-R’s styling will go in the next generations.
 
Tagged a 2016 Nissan GT-R, these renderings are purely speculative design studies. The ideas presented here are still quite interesting, with two distinct flavors of modern GT-R from which to select your favorite.

wow!  I'd get this in a heartbeat!

 

Pretty renderings and like how they kept the look.  Can't tell but the size of the car looks to be the same no?

Nissan's aerodynamic targets for the GT-R are going to strongly impact what the exterior design looks like.  On the current GT-R, many of the crease lines, vents, wing, etc. all had to play into a formula to achieve the 0.27 CD.  Will they shoot for the same target, or try to further improve this?  Lower coefficient of drag results in fast acceleration, better gas mileage, more precise control over aero.

 

I really like these renderings, particularly the gunmetal ones, will be fascinating to see how this develops.

I like the rendering, but I think it fails with the taillamps.  They're a signature of the GTR and I don't think the artist quite understands that.

exactly, I really doubt they would change the tail lights.

Front bumper openings and side skirts look like they took inspiration from a Murcielago

That render will be far from what the actual R36 will be. Too much photochop from other makes.

 

Maybe the next Hyuandai Tiburon?

Hating that front-end in the rendering, but at least it is just an idea :)

The article says that a hybrid may not be likely. Nobody knows, all these mags and websites just throw shit at a wall and hope something will stick.
