2011 Nissan GT-R: Base Model to Receive Updates, More Options

2011 GT-R Testing at Nurburgring

The base model Nissan GT-R will receive further updates over and above the minor facelift we’ve seen in spyshots to date, say Pistonheads.com.

The base model will receive the SpecV‘s rear diffuser which offers improved transaxle cooling which will be further bolstered by the side NACA ducting we’ve seen so far.

Suspension will receive some tweaks including stiffer front spring rates and stiffer rear torsion control arm bushes. Improving driver feedback and the sensation of being connected to the car is the end goal of these updates.

A feature many track going GT-R owners have been wondering about may also be on the cards with an update to the sat-nav package including a data logging function with USB key storage for ease of use and portability.

ECU / TCM changes are again likely for the 2011 model update with changes aimed more at driveability and emissions versus acceleration like we saw in the MY2010.

Overall, Mizuno-san’s commitment to evolving the GT-R over it’s lifespan seems to be strong. Can’t wait to see the final spec sheets at launch.
