Nissan’s GT-R is dead for most of the world after it was withdrawn from sale in Europe and Australia, but in Japan the company is preparing to launch a car in 2024 for markets like the US, where the super-coupe is still alive and well.
The 2024 version of the car, which first went on sale in 2007, will be announced at the Tokyo Motor Show at 8pm EST on January 12th (10am on the 13th for those in Japan).
Nissan’s YouTube channel will broadcast the unveiling from Nissan’s main stage at Makuhari Messe, where the car will be unveiled by Nissan COO Ashwani Gupta and Chief Automotive Engineer Takashi Kawaguchi. This will be followed 3.5 hours later by a less official but possibly more in-depth unveiling of the 2024 GT-R, which can again be watched live on YouTube, but this time featuring Kawaguchi, the chief engineer of drive Naoki Nakata and brand ambassador Hiroshi Tamura.
That much we know, but what’s not so clear is what exactly the team will be unveiling. Although it is not a secret that Nissan works of an all-new electrified GT-R, we don’t expect to see that until later in the decade. So the 2024 car is almost certainly another mild makeover of the existing car, although we’d love to be proven wrong.
The last really big update for the GT-R came in 2016 when the car was facelifted for the 2017 model year with new bumpers, a new interior design and more power from the VR38DETT V6 engine. Nissan skipped the 2022 model year, but reintroduced the car in North America for 2023. It currently makes 565 hp. (573 hp) and 467 lb-ft (633 Nm) and costs $113,540 in the US

It took Nissan six years between showing the 2001 GT-R concept and taking the wraps off the production version that’s still with us today, so we’re not surprised the company isn’t in a rush to scrap it, even if it now sells a fraction of the units it once did. The question is how to replace it? If you’re a night owl and want to watch the 2024 GT-R presentations live, you’ll find the YouTube links below.
