Nissan R32 Skyline GT-R subs turbos for batteries

 A prototype Skyline GT-R R32 restomod with an all-electric drivetrain has been teased by Nissan.

A 20-second video of the conventional combustion-powered Skyline GT-R R32 starting up was uploaded on Twitter by the Japanese automaker. Nissan also set up a landing page for the Skyline GT-R R32 EV prototype on their Japanese website.

When translated from Japanese to English, an unidentified engineer remarked, "I want to develop a more exciting car by incorporating the latest electrification technology that I am associated with to my favorite car."

It appears that this guy joined Nissan because he loved the GT-R.

What kind of electric engine this Skyline GT-R R32 employs and its outputs are still unknown.

The 2.6-liter twin-turbo RB26DETT inline-six engine that powers the famous combustion-powered vehicle is capable of producing 206kW of power and 353Nm of torque, however actual outputs were substantially higher.

All-wheel drive was used in conjunction with a five-speed manual transmission to transmit power.

Launched in 1989 and produced through 1994, the Nissan Skyline GT-R R32. In 1991, 100 examples came to Australia and were each sold for $110,000.

Because to its astronomical success in the world of motorsport, particularly in Australia where it won the Bathurst 1000 back-to-back in 1991 and 1992, this vehicle earned the nickname "Godzilla."

Nissan has updated its long-term Ambition 2030 plan, adding more electrified vehicles for 2023.

By the end of its fiscal year in 2030, the Japanese automaker intends to introduce 27 new electrified cars under the Nissan and Infiniti brands, including 19 new electric vehicles (EVs) and eight new hybrid models.

A new GT-R with an all-electric or hybrid drivetrain could be one of these new electrified vehicles.
