Aww. I was hoping for some left-field, seemingly-out-of-nowhere greatness like the Lexus LFA.
Something along the lines of a mid-engined supercar, powered by an evolution of Nissan’s much-vaunted (and rightly so) twin-turbo V6? Steady on with ideas like that; the mere mention of it is enough to make the office junior mildly tumescent.
There’s no doubt in our minds that Nissan could do it, effectively usurping the GT-R in the process. But, apart from an increasingly priapic TG staffer and a few monied Nissan die-hards, who’s going to look past the ever-burgeoning crop of ‘brand-name’ supercars and choose a Nissan?
This, along with the substantial sum it would take Nissan to develop a truly world-beating supercar, is probably why the only wheels it turns in anger are made up of pixels rendered by a Playstation. Disappointing? Yes. Surprising? Less so.
