The 2024 Nissan GT-R is the latest chapter in a five-decade-long story of excellence.
It's a story of street-ready practicality combined with racetrack-dominating performance, all wrapped up in the most advanced automotive engineering feats of the time. It's a story of six generations, mind-numbing speed, and countless victories in motorsports, and it's one you can be a part of when you pre-order the 2024 Nissan GT-R.
Take a look at the passionate history, redesigned elements, specs, interior details, trims, and colors of the upcoming 2024 GT-R with our guide below, and contact Petro Nissan to learn how you can pre-order yours today.
The tradition of Japanese craftsmanship is about precise and passionate refinement. In few vehicles is this tradition as evident as in the 2024 Nissan GT-R. But to understand the true power of this philosophy, we need to look at how we got here:
Back in 1968, the successful and affordable Prince Skyline sedan was improved under the newly-joined forces of Prince and Nissan, resulting in the launch of the C10-generation Prince Skyline. It was a lovably-boxy and practical sedan that, like its predecessors, could put up a fight on the racetrack. But both Prince and Nissan engineers knew that it could be taken further.
In 1969, it became the Nissan Skyline, and the recently-merged brands upped the ante with a specially-developed inline-six engine and a full suite of motorsports upgrades. Their passion for performance created the first-ever Nissan GT-R: The iconic 1969 Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R, AKA the Hakosuka. The Hakosuka threw down on Japanese racetracks, winning races immediately after its debut and scoring a total of 52 wins by October 1972. The next Skyline generation debuted in 1973, bringing with it the muscular, near-mythical KenMeri GT-R.
The GT-R name would go dormant until 1989, but when it awoke, fire rained down, and motorsports teams across Japan ran in fear. This is where the story of the 2024 Nissan GT-R truly begins; this was the first GT-R that enthusiasts called "Godzilla": The monstrous Nissan Skyline GT-R R32.
The R32-generation Skyline GT-R used a new world of technology and AWD capabilities to dominate, seeing an undefeated streak that lasted for four seasons of the Japanese Touring Car Championship. The R33-generation Skyline GT-R refined it further in 1993, taking names on international stages like the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
That brings us to 1998 when a key inspiration behind the 2024 Nissan GT-R debuted: the legend of legends, the Skyline GT-R R34. Whether you know it from racing games or racing-based movies, you know what it's about: extreme precision and performance made more extreme. Then, in 2008, you could finally buy a new GT-R in America; the R35 generation debuted as a model unique from the Skyline and, most importantly, the first GT-R that wasn't limited to the Japanese market.
The 2024 Nissan GT-R is part of the R35 generation, using its long-lived status to become the most refined GT-R ever.
There's a lot to explore on the 2024 Nissan GT-R, but first, we must look at the redesigned exterior.
If you're familiar with the GT-R generations discussed above, you'll instantly notice an homage to the R35-generation's predecessor. Yes, on the 2024 Nissan GT-R, R34 inspirations abound. The four circular taillights are one example, and on the 2024 Nissan GT-R, they're surrounded by a sharper, redesigned rear fascia.
Up front, there's another R34 inspiration: the grille. Its squarer shape and horizontal split are just like the R34 GT-R, and with a thinner mesh, it improves engine cooling and reduces aerodynamic drag. The front fascia of the 2024 Nissan GT-R has been similarly redesigned, introducing a sleeker shape with more aggressive style lines and accents.
Refinements to the sides of the bumpers and a revised rear wing join in to make the new GT-R a presence-making machine. Plus, they work In tandem with the other redesign elements to increase downforce. However, increased downforce almost always means increased aerodynamic drag. But with intelligent aerodynamic design defining the 2024 Nissan GT-R, it maintains the same drag coefficient as the previous model, an impressive feat by any measure.
On the 2024 Nissan GT-R NISMO, you'll find redesigned canards and diffusers, a rear wing with swan-neck supports, a redesigned front grille that strikes fear into any other performance driver's heart, unique red accents, exclusive wheels, and much more.
From front to back, this new Nissan GT-R for sale looks sharper, sleeker, and sportier than ever.
The 2024 Nissan GT-R doesn't just look sportier, it is sportier.
For the first time, the GT-R now offers a front limited-slip differential. With a rear limited-slip differential already in place, the pavement-clawing cornering capabilities of the GT-R are stronger than ever. The 2024 Nissan GT-R is a street-conquering super sports car that spits fire with its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine.
The engine of the Nissan GT-R, though, can only be made by five specially-selected master craftsmen known as "Takumi.”
The engine is built by hand in a purified, climate-controlled clean room within the brand's Yokohama, Japan factory. Only specifically-approved tools can be used, and even the Takumi's clothes are chosen for the task. The result? A heart that revs fast and makes 565 or 600 horsepower and 467 or 481 pound-feet of torque (depending on the trim level).
Each horse gallops into an ATTESA ET-S AWD system (introduced on the R32 GT-R and refined up to this day), and for 2024, the system promises to be more agile than ever. The six-speed dual-clutch transaxle's rear-mounted position only improves the agility, while the gearbox itself provides rapid-fire shifts.
Specially-tuned suspension with Bilstein® DampTronic shocks that feature center-console-mounted controls (which also adjust the engine and transmission modes) let you dial in your 2024 Nissan GT-R for the street, track, or open highway. Exclusive to the Nissan GT-R are Brembo® brakes, which are co-developed by Nissan and they bring this high-speed monster back to a stop just as fast.
Available RAYS® 20-inch lightweight-alloy wheels wrapped in Dunlop® SP Sport Maxx GT600 ultra-high-performance tires get the traction (and style) you need. In every 2024 Nissan GT-R, a standard titanium exhaust system produces a glorious soundtrack and looks fantastic with its burnished-finish tips.
While official 2024 Nissan GT-R 0-60 times have yet to be announced. But, with the 2023 model's Car and Driver tested 0-60 mph time of just 2.9 seconds1 in mind, you can expect lightning-fast benchmarks.
From the R32 GT-R onwards, astoundingly-advanced controls have been the centerpiece of every GT-R interior; the 2024 Nissan GT-R is no exception. Vehicle system statuses, cutting-edge performance readouts, and more are at your hand. If it feels like you're in a video game, that's absolutely intentional. This multi-function display was designed with help from Polyphony Digital®: The creators of the iconic Gran Turismo® racing video games.
It all comes together with a design that immerses you into your GT-R. And for further immersion into your 2024 Nissan GT-R, you'll find controllable exhaust valves to make things louder or quieter. Alongside a valved exhaust, Active Noise Cancellation plus acoustic-absorbing materials step in for calm cruising, while Active Sound Enhancements work in tandem to create clearer engine noises in the cabin.
But premium cabin comforts share the spotlight. You'll find bespoke appointments all around, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a Nappa leather-trimmed dashboard, available Mori Green semi-aniline leather seats, a quilted-stitch Alcantara® headliner, precision-crafted climate control vents, and more. Being inside the latest 2024 Nissan GT-R is enjoyable even when the engine is off.
Impressively, four people can enjoy this cabin. It's a rarity in this class, but with special bolstering even in the rear seats, eight-way front-seat adjustability, and 8.8 cubic feet of trunk space, the 2024 Nissan GT-R is a genuinely daily-drivable super sports car that you can use for all your errands, all year round.
Like the new Nissan Z, the 2024 Nissan GT-R is available in three trim levels. The full details and features of each trim will be announced soon, but for now, here's an overview of what each version can offer you:
And for your selection of 2024 Nissan GT-R colors, the classic Millenium Jade and Midnight Purple paint colors are back and available exclusively on the T-Spec trim. Otherwise, we expect the 2024 Nissan GT-R to offer the same colors as 2023, which are as follows:
The 2024 Nissan GT-R release date is expected to arrive sometime in Summer 2023. The NISMO model will arrive soon after.

Summer 2023 will see the release of the 2024 Nissan GT-R. R36-generation it is not; rather, it refines everything that's made the R35-generation so legendary. With redesigned exterior elements that enhance downforce while maintaining the previous drag coefficient, a model-first front limited-slip differential, and more, this latest GT-R is well worth the wait.
The 2024 Nissan GT-R price will be announced soon, as the model has nearly landed at Nissan dealerships across the nation. We'll know the full details on how much a 2024 Nissan GT-R will cost sometime during Summer 2023, as this is when the model will arrive. Contact Petro Nissan after the new GT-R arrives to learn more about pricing.
The 2024 Nissan GT-R improves the legendary nameplate even further, receiving changes like a redesigned exterior that enhance downforce without increasing drag, powerful handling upgrades, the return of the T-Spec trim level, heritage paint colors, and more. With refinements that pay tribute to the model's history, the 2024 Nissan GT-R R35 is the best GT-R yet.
The speed of a 2024 Nissan GT-R has not yet been measured, but with the previous version posting a Car and Driver tested 0-60 MPH time of only 2.9 seconds,1 it's set to be wickedly-fast. Plus, the GT-R is an agile racetrack weapon, combining its blistering speed with cornering capabilities that'll leave the rest behind.
The 2024 Nissan GT-R will arrive in Summer 2023 with a Premium, T-Spec, and NISMO version. Each trim will offer incredible performance, but with the NISMO trim boosting the GT-R to 600 horsepower and adding enhancements like front and rear limited-slip differentials, additional downforce-making elements, Brembo® brakes featuring carbon-ceramic rotors, and more, it'll be even faster.
