One of Japan’s most famous automotive exports looks like it’s set to receive an electrified update, with Nissan teasing an image of an electric Skyline GT-R that’s currently under development. With just a shot of the rear bumper revealed so far, details are scant but the debut of an EV GT-R would certainly put a cat amongst the pigeons in a space that has most recently been dominated by South Korean automakers.

Unfortunately for Australian lovers of the Nissan GT-R, the Japanese sportscar was banned locally at the start of last year due to its failure to comply with new safety legislation. However, with a chassis redesign to meet these new side-impact tests, the prospect of an electrified GT-R on Aussie roads is an exciting one, to say the least.

All Nissan has revealed about the R32 Skyline GT-R project so far are a series of mysterious quotes from auto engineers who work for the brand, with one stating, “I want to build a more exciting car by adding the latest electrification technology that I am involved with to my favourite car.” Another reads, “I think I can make a car that I love the most, and that I can make a car that people around the world will be more excited about.”

It’s a frustratingly small amount of information that’s been offered so far, but we personally can’t wait to see what Nissan is cooking up behind closed doors.
