112_0802_02znissan_gt_r_four_door_illustrationfront_view.jpgSome of you will remember our post concerning the possibility of Infiniti badge-engineering themselves a GT-R. Our stance? Perish the thought! However, we did end the screed by saying it would behoove the Franco-Japanese house that Ghosn built to consider a four-door Godzilla. Turns out we're quite the prognosticators. Ye olde Motor Trend is reporting that a "senior source" buried deep within Nissan has "confirmed" the possibility of "studying" the option of building just such a world-beating hyper-sedan. Easier said than done, maybe. The new GT-R is (kinda) based on Nissan's crowd pleasing Front-Midship (FM) architecture. But it's so 'roided-up that Nissan refers to it as PM (Premiere-Midship). They could stretch it and bolt on two extra doors, but it would cost about $5,000 more than the existing GT-R coupe. C'est rien: a small price to pay for the knowledge that my Infiniti can whip the snot out of your IS-F, M3, RS-Whatever, etc.
