“Since around the beginning of this month, Nissan has stopped taking orders for the GT-R; the production line has been stopped. Various car magazines have suggested that the halt is tied to a price increase, a reaction to the economic crisis and the increased cost of North American production. On the other hand, Chief Vehicle Engineer Mizuno said that the GT-R would evolve; it’s been just about a year since the GT-R was first offered for sale. Nissan may be proceeding with an in-year specification change. In other words, the rumored line-stop is actually a planned line re-tooling. In any event, Nissan will not say when produciton will resume or when they’ll re-open the GT-R’s order books.”
