2021 Nissan GT-R — If we have to mention a very iconic car that has very loyal followings and enthusiasts, Nissan GT-R definitely will be one of them. The reason why this model can reach such a respectable place in the customers’ heart is due to its continuous improvement that manages to put this car one step ahead of its competition.
Even though the outgoing model has been around for around ten years, buyers are always lining up to purchase the vehicle since there is always something new being offered.
As much as we love Nissan GT-R, this car is not perfect and still has some significant shortcomings. As a matter of fact, there are two things about Nissan GT-R that are heavily criticized by the customers. The first one is its weight while the second one is its price. The good news is, Nissan is planning to respond those criticisms in its upcoming 2021 Nissan GT-R.

Speaking of the weight, the current GT-R is criticized because it is deemed too heavy for a car in this segment. Nissan will do something to reduce the weight in the 2021 model. However, the weight loss will not be too significant.
A company representative said that too much weight loss would not do anything good for the car since the heavyweight will play a major role in ensuring correct level handling. Therefore, the car certainly will be lighter than the outgoing model, but nothing too dramatic.
Nissan GT-R is also criticized for being too expensive which is proved by the newest MY 2017 GT-R Nismo. For 2021 model, the lower price will be very unlikely, but Nissan will equip the upcoming model with technology that will make every penny the customers spend to purchase this car worth it.
2021 Nissan GT-R will be developed by the same person responsible for creating the R36 generation. The company representative also said that 2021 GT-R will still be a 2 + 2 coupe. Furthermore, it will be equipped with a V6 engine that is paired to a dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

Since the car will arrive in 2021, some form of electrification is to be expected, and hybrid powertrain is the most plausible option. Maybe it will not be a full hybrid, but the powertrain will have something up its sleeve to boost the power when it is needed.
Some customers might not be satisfied since 2021 GT-R doesn’t present anything too significant to answer the two criticisms from the customers. However, Nissan has promised to give the car very remarkable designs that will make any shortcomings on the car don’t matter anymore.
