I heard that it might be coming out in '22.Last I heard was that production starts in September.
Yeah, I have literally no idea why Nissan is being so secretive with this. They can't even tell us the name.There has been ZERO information from Nissan on anything other than design and that it's a twin turbo V6.
They gave hints about how the proto is 99% the production car. That they worked closely with engineering to ensure the design will not change much. Design said they handed the car off to engineering. That's pretty much all we know.
Very cool, that’s persistence, I should try with my local dealership which has been great over the years. Stay tuned...Was at my dealer Monday - they confirmed I am first and said as of now still thinking late February/March to place order. No word on production.
Patience - I went through this with my 2008 Challenger SRT/8 - waited over a year and with my 2015 Hellcat Challenger waited about a year.
God I hope it's not 2022 I was hoping summer or fall of this year - I guess it is what it is@AlohaSnackbar Shared these:

As a wise man once said:
"A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad."
Same rule applies to cars.
Nissan just needs to tell their loyal enthusiasts/market which half of whatever year. Then slowly release specs, that’s it. Doesn’t seem too tricky!With them not putting out anything on the virtual Tokyo Auto salon my guess is 2022. It will come out in Japan 1st and I was hoping for a release date for Japan this last weekend.... Nothing... Not a word. So my guess is early 22 for Japan and mid 22 for rest of the world. Maybe Australia will go early as well. They want a major release with big fanfare and media and COVID is not going to let that happen. This is a major new release for them and with the state of the company they need it to be 100%. They could do better on the teasers though to help build the demand. I blame the old school thinking that still dominates much of Japanese business as they are slow to move to new things as ideas must flow from the top down. I am sure the marketing department would love to start pushing the car but we are stuck waiting for a senior salary man to "have the idea". Sorry for the rant... To many years living in japan I guess....
