Nissan GT-R R35 Reportedly Set to Cease Production by 2025

Fate of GT-R to be Determined on March 14: What’s Next?

Next week, Nissan will be announcing information about the highly anticipated 2025 GT-R. As reported by the Japanese publication Mag-X, this will mark the end of an era for the R35 Nissan GT-R, signaling the conclusion of its production which began in 2007.

According to the article, the report indicates that only 1,500 units will be produced in the final production run. Out of these, a smaller number of 300 will be reserved for the high-performance GT-R Nismo model. However, it remains unclear whether these coveted slots will be distributed based on a first-come-first-served basis or through a lottery system, similar to the method used for two limited edition Toyota GR Yaris models in Japan.

As per the report, Nissan has informed dealers of their decision to halt production due to the discontinuation of several crucial parts for the current model.

The latest variation of the Nissan GT-R is now available for purchase, boasting a refreshed look compared to the R35 model. This revamped version was released in mid-2024 and includes updated front and rear designs, as well as a higher cost. Reports from Japan suggest that this particular edition of the GT-R will have a shorter production cycle of just two years, with limited availability. However, Nissan has not shared any specific details on the exact number of 2024 GT-Rs that will be manufactured.

There is still a big question mark surrounding the release of the final 1,500 units of the 2025 GT-R. Will they only be available in Japan or will they also be distributed to other markets, such as the US? If it’s the latter, this would make the model’s farewell even more scarce and valuable.

Nissan has yet to officially announce the fate of the iconic GT-R nameplate. However, according to previous reports, it seems that electrification is on the horizon for the next-generation model, which will also feature the bold and futuristic design of the Hyper Force concept. In the words of Nissan’s program design director Giovanny Arroba, the concept was not simply a product of imagination, but rather a glimpse into what is expected to become a tangible reality by the end of the decade.

Like numerous speculations, it is advisable to approach this information with a certain degree of skepticism as Nissan has not yet issued an official statement on the subject. However, the mystery surrounding the R35’s future will supposedly be cleared up on March 14, 2024.
