Would you buy an R36 hybrid?

As a result of this thread https://www.gtr.co.uk/forum/128726-r36-will-hybrid.html I though I would add a poll

Would you buy an R36 hybrid?

NO, Nissan seems to have lost the plot. They are completely ruining the GTR breed. With changes they brought to R35 was a bit off putting let alone the hybrid. No RB26, no mannual trans, can't see myself in a hybrid.
Having said that, Nissan can see in the future and know what will be the next big thing that makes money, so this might be it.

I voted yes but would only buy one if lots of other criteria were met. eg . . . It would have to out perform the stock R35 whilst still being as practical, look the dogs, be within budget (lets say sub £70k) and not sound like a hybrid milk float.

For me Id be buying the car as a package with all the changes (for better or worse) so the questions not really worth answering (IMO) because you cannott say yes or no to something untill you have the details of what it is.

I think the term "hybrid", when referring to a car, has somewhat of a stigma attached to it because of certain abominations such as the Honda Prius. A KERS equiped F1 car could also be referred to as a hybrid. It has two methods for making the wheels turn.

I won't be buying an R36, even if it came with JATO.
My R35 is my dream car. And it will probably be the last of its kind.

The R36 will out perform the R35 (Nissan aren't silly), but it will come at a cost.

There ya go. That's my humble opinion

Oh, almost forgot. If the R36 looks like the photos I've seen, somebody needs a slap! LOL

These hybrids could potentially slow down global warming


I dont want a silent wizzy motor in my car even if it does have a proper engine. Bigger turbo's and less weight is the way they should be going.

The best thing about the R36 being a hybrid is it will take a damn long age to develop and so the R35 value won't nose dive for a good few years yet. I quite like the idea of an electric motor's huge torque off the line and then the effect of near frictionless acceleration. So, I’m not convinced but I would buy one if it’s the dog’s doo-daa’s.

That is very true but it still made me laugh!

There are an awful lot of R35 owners on here who ordered their cars when;

they had not seen it
they had not driven it
they did not know what it would cost
they had no details of its performance

so clearly there are alot of people just mad enough to do exactly that!

...... also the R36 would have to be a heap beter than the R35 out of the factory. The more reliance the power plant makes on electric power the less opportunity there will be for us to tune it.

Even if you crack the ECU an electric motor is not going to reveal a load of extra torque unless GTC come up with an "extra Nicad pack" for it.

So the R36 will have to be better than a tuned R35 which is a tall order

But I think, deep down, we all knew it would be great

Actually, an electric motor has huge torque and this normally has to be limited to stop the wheels hopelessly spinning. This is why trains use electric motors. Don’t get me wrong, I like the smell of petrol but I wouldn’t bet on the ECU comment. It might open a whole new world of mapping.
The magabucks all hydrogen fuel cell cars in development are frighteningly quick and need to be limited by the ECU.

The R35 might just be the last great petrol only super car... ( I can hear the keyboards clicking already!!) :-)

I am really pleased that the next generation will be a hybrid. I suspect that the next generation of most things will be a hybrid also!

I also run a Prius (and used to run a GWiz). That experience shows how effective electric motors are: instant torque from 0 rpm which, when used in combination with a internal combustion engine, is very effective indeed.

The prius has stacks of instant torque from standstill and often beats more powerful conventional everyday cars from the lights. The electric motor on my car is rated at 295 lb ft @ 0 rpm.

See this: John's Stuff - Toyota Prius - 2004 Tech Presentation 54

A GT-R with additional electric propulsion will be devastating. That's also why Ferrari, Porsche, BMW, etc are designing parallel hybrids.

after looking at what they have done with the p1, 918 and laFerrari and knowing Williams will be helping with the hybrid part I think it will be amazing.

think instant response no turbo lag, torque throughout the whole rev range, more bhp and better fuel economy.

considering the gt-s's patented drive-train is much better then the car's mentioned above its likely to be just as fast and knowing it going to cost far far less then them its SHOULD be a bargain.

Anyone coming from an R35 i expect will want one. some from r34 and earlier may still want a manual car. but that's only a handful of people considering statistics where when people are given the option between manual and auto only 2% go for manual. The same stats were true for Porsche and Lamborghini hence they don't do manual anymore.
