But there are a few more NISMO models in the works--according to Nissan we’ll see at least one new NISMO model every year through the end of 2016. That cut-off date is when the company-wide Nissan Power 88 model rollout plan is slated to end.
The next model in the pipeline is the 2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO, which we can expect some epic performance figures from. The car is being developed with the Williams F1 Team and is said to be capable of setting a new production car lap record at the Nürburgring.
"The Nissan GT-R NISMO is the GT-R with which we pursue pure performance," NISMO product chief Hiroshi Tamura said in a statement. “Its development is on schedule, and I can't wait to see the model introduced into the markets."
Beyond the GT-R NISMO, it’s not clear what NISMO has in store for us. One possibility is a Leaf NISMO, a version of which is already available in Japan in limited numbers.
While expanding its road car division, NISMO is also intensifying its motorsport presence. NISMO has built a new GT-R-based race car for the 2014 Super GT season and will continue to produce a GT-R GT3 race car, as well as cars and engines for the World Endurance Championship, V8 Supercars, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and various other motorsport series.
