The GT-R would follow on the heels of the automaker's new 350Z sports car, which goes on sale in 2003.
The four-passenger GT-R coupe is beloved by enthusiasts for the road-holding prowess of its rally-style all-wheel drive and the performance of its engine.
Speaking at the unveiling of the GT-R concept, Nissan CEO Carlo Ghosn said: "The GT-R has always been a car that crosses rational boundaries. With left-hand drive, GT-R is prepared to cross national boundaries as well."
The concept features an aggressive, steep-sloping grille; slanted headlamps that extend from the front base of the car and come to a point above the wheels; rounded taillamps; and a well-defined shoulder that widens towards the rear.
Ghosn gave no timetable for launching the new GT-R and said it is too early to say which markets would get the car. But a Nissan spokesman said the U.S. market is under consideration.
