Rumor has it that the next Nissan GT-R is going to be a hybrid. The rumor has been around for a while but has never been confirmed. Autocar now brings us the closest to it, quoting Nissan's sales and marketing boss Andy Palmer:

“There is an inevitability about electrification of all cars in the future, and there is the very real prospect of enhancements coming from this and ending up on a sports car like the Nissan GT-R,” said Palmer.

“The electric systems can fill in the gaps in the torque curve and offer genuine performance gains, as well as lowering emissions. It’s win-win, and I’d expect to see some form of hybridisation on the next generation of car,” the high-ranking exec added.

Until then, stay tuned for more.
