Nissan just confirmed it will be part electric. Seems interesting, I just hope it doesnt hurt the performance to much. Im sure Nissan can pull it off, just wondering how they will incorporate the electric part? They have not released details on how yet. And whether they can truly hit 2 seconds? Im skeptic.... They're supposed to show it off at the Tokyo Motor show later this month....cant wait.

"Regardless, Nissan will reveal the 'Ring time for its GT-R Nismo during the Tokyo Motor Show -- the most track-ready GT-R ever, rumored to hit 60 mph in a scarcely believable 2.0 seconds. "

We have to remember that electric engines produce much more torque than combustion engines so a faster acceleration is possible, but the necessary grip must be there aswell and the necessary diet too.

With the right diff it can easily break 2 seconds but then it wouldn't drive properly in higher gears.
its not so much about the diff as it is the gearbox. for it to hit sub 2 seconds, or around 2 seconds, it would need first and second gear to be really short, which would then make the subsequent gears proportionally much longer, and it wouldn't have nearly as good intermediate acceleration. Not to mention the amount of torque would be very high for those small gears to handle reliably. The reason motorcycles get away with having such low acceleration times is that they weigh so little, and the amount of torque going through their internals is much smaller, yet same materials are used.

However, because the article mentions the GT-R being part electric, you could cleverly send the electric motor torque (max at 1RPM essentially) straight to the wheels, along with the engine torque. with the right gearing it is possible.

though for all this to be possible the new GT-R would have to be essentially a different car. can't think of where they'd store the batteries and electric motors in the current one.

I hate when people speculate. There are full-size street trucks that are in the low-2's, 0-60 nowadays. "It can't be done." is often done after a certain period in time. Nissan has over-engineered and down-played the GT-R from the beginning--I don't see them making false claims on capability. I'm still impressed with the earlier model GT-R, and God knows before driving it, I heard enough of, "A Nissan can't compete with X/Y/Z, price-wise or performance-wise. Can't be done."

I agree however I'd like to know to what trucks you're referring to?

I only "speculate" bc of personal experience. My GT-R has over 900awhp and its best 0-60 is 2.4 and that was at the drag strip running (4) DR's.
So, 2 seconds flat on street tires is a bit hard for me to believe. . . . . but anything is possible.

That makes two of us !

I think this is actually going to be pretty cool, especially if nissan come through and makes a better GTR than we already have. And in regards to the electric motor, it would be sick if they could put an electric motor on each wheel as Tesla does I believe, meaning much better weight distribution and a lower center of gravity, but yea, they will still have to shed a bit of weight.

You're not the only one speaking from personal experience. Not everyone on a forum is a child, who has poses beside these cars and becomes an expert.

Here's one of at least ten, that are on stock-bottom end's:

I've seen one too many heavy, non-engineered, domestic trucks cut unrealistic 60 ft. times to discard Nissan's claim of 2.0 s. Simple as that.

Listen HandJob, I never said anything about children or posers. I simply stated, MY opinion, about MY own experience, versus what I think the new stock GT-R on street tires can do.

A heavily modified ANYTHING can rip off a great 60' but I thought we were talking about STOCK vehicles. To your credit, you did say, "street" trucks not "stock" trucks. So, this comes as no surprise at all. My turbo Lightning cuts 1.3's all day long but it's far from stock.

Care to provide some actual proof and data on that (I'm assuming VBOX)?

Listen HandJob,
lol, classy.

I hate to quote JB but "never say never". If Nissan are the ones that made the claim I fully believe it.

uh oh, ok ok....

I'd say you guys are both right. As we were talking stock, which would be pretty impressive for nissan to pull off.

To Chevelles credit; yes, we were talking stock. So for 2 seconds stock, it is very hard to believe. (not saying impossible). As you said; "A heavily modified ANYTHING can rip off a great 60'."

To H J's credit: I agree I wouldnt say its impossible. Its just gonna be very surprising if they can do it on the actual production stock. But I have my fingers crossed! I look forward to seeing it later this month....

And for Srock: I know you were asking for VBOX data about the 0-60 speed, but Here's some video of Chevelle's GTR at the Dragstrip: http://www.luxury4play.com/asian-auto/88937-gt-r-dragstrip.html

wait are you talking about 0-60ft covered?? you do know that the thread is about 0-60mph?? and that Turbo Silverado did not do 0-60mph in 2 seconds.

Correct, this was verified by my vbox. Unfortunately, my SD card with that info is in Florida but I do have the time slip from that pass. My 60ft is the current record for a full weight, stock suspension, GT-R on Drag radials. It was the overall record for all of 48hrs before AMS ripped off a 1.38 with their Alpha Omega two days later at the same track. Now, a few guys are running 17" slicks so, 60' times will definitely be getting quicker.

Nice find but that vid was from a couple years ago after I added my first bolt-on's (560awhp). Since then, I had AMS build me an Alpha9 (914awhp).
This video is the pass associated with the time-slip posted above.

No, I'm not talking about "0-60ft covered??"

Back in '12, the truck did 0-60 MPH (read carefully), in a tick over 3s. The truck is now quicker/faster. I'm not into pissing matches with faux data--if you want to be right, feel free to do so. I don't back-and-forth on forums.
