Calling it the "Hub" of its worldwide design activities, Nissan Motor Co. recently opened its new Technical Design Center in Atsugi, Japan. Making news at the opening, CEO Carlos Ghosen of Nissan announced that the company's upcoming GT-R will be built at Nissan's Tochigi plant and the unique highly specialized, high performance engine will be constructed at the Yokohama engine plant. Our take? Not sure what this could lead to. Perhaps more aerodynamic designed cars with ridiculously low drag coefficient ratings. Maybe space ships for the highway. Who knows? But our interests are peaked so we are staying tuned. Additional article: Nissan Skyline Goes Live Worldwide Nissan Skyline gets shot in Germany Via IGN
