When it was first announced that the Nissan GT-R would come to the U.S., it was expected to be a part of Nissan’s higher-priced Infiniti brand. Now as rumors about a four-door GT-R are heating up again, AutoExpress is reporting that the family GT-R will be launched in 2011 and will come flying the Infiniti flag.
This is not going to just be a GT-R with a few extra doors. The car will feature a longer wheelbase and will be more oriented on luxury than performance. Gone is the custom built twin-turbo V6. Instead it’s rumored the GT-R sedan will get the less exclusive 5.0-liter V8 from the Infiniti FX50 SUV . It should still be good for 420hp and a 0 to 60 time of about five seconds.
