Update1: Spotters Guidebook to 2014 Nissan GT-R Premium from $99k vs. Forthcoming 2015 NISMO Model

Orig Published on: Nov 27, 2013 @ 17:05

So, which new GT-R is which? The below snapshot is very helpful in understanding the new GT-R.

The 2014 Nissan GT-R is hugely revised, and arriving in American Nissan stores in the next month or two.

Very exciting LED revisions are joined by richer cabin styles, redesigned aerodynamics, far more power, and three distinctly-tuned trim levels: Premium, Black and Track.

The 2015 GT-R NISMO arrives in early Summer 2014 to the U.S. – but most of its major improvements are helping the 2014 model to be sharper and comfier at the same time.


What a huge, huge week of car news it has been. With dueling auto shows in LA and Tokyo vying for the same column inches, there are bound to be great concepts and ideas that are not explored deeply enough.

Such is the GT-R. As if anyone could ever fully understand the GT-R… we car guys generally must know the details on a model-year basis.


Both 2014 and 2015 GT-Rs Include These Change Highlights:

  • All new LED lighting for up front


  • Triple LED Lowbeam: New

  • Single LED Matrix Highbeam: New)

  • New Rear Combination LED lighting [Brakes, Running lights, Spoiler CHMSL, Solid LED quad rings (No more dots)]

  • Revised Chassis/Suspension/Grip

  • Revised Aerodynamics and Rigidity From New Rear Bulkhead and Carbon-fiber Reinforcements

  • Revised Engine Management/Data Transfer Improvements

  • New interior

Just 2014 Nissan GT-R (Black Edition, Premium, Track)

  • New Wheels, Tires, Damptronic Bilsteins

  • 550 Horsepower (Japanese Market)

Just 2015 GT-R NISMO:

  • Lower red-accented spoilers/down-force package redesign

  • Front chin vents

  • Carbon-backed seats, NISMO interior

  • Revised front wings

  • Sill spats front, middle, rear

  • Single-piece rear exhaust outlets (dual chamber per side)

  • Rear spoiler

  • Rear wheel-well vents

  • NISMO-tuned Damptronic suspension settings/traction management

  • 600 Horsepower (Japanese Market)

Hopefully this makes sense of the new GT-R lineup for you.

We have an email drafted to our pals in Tennessee and will confirm this is, indeed, the case right after the Thanksgiving holiday. Such a huge week of Nissan news: we have not even covered the IDx and IDx NISMO concepts, which revive the 70s glam of street-racing GT-R Skylines.

Check out the new NISMO HQ building and tell me these guys are not awesome.
