About Nissan's future.
It's unclear.
Alliance between Nissan and Renault won't be changed.
Rather, Nissan company's governance by Renault will be strengthened.
Perhaps, Nissan might be absorbed by Renault.
Nevertheless, the Nissan brand will remain.
I do not know if Nissan's motor sports budget will be reduced.
Whether Nissan is competitive in GT500 next season depends on whether they develop pre-chamber engine or not.

Yasuda, Hirate. Hiramine, Rossiter and Moore will participate in the audition.
*Oliveira might be released from Nissan camp.
*Sasaki might join in team NISMO.
Not surprised that Nismo may replace Matsuda. He looked slow this year and Autopolis didnít help. Not sure though if Sasaki is the answer

Total 6 cars were manufactured.
But there is no plan to participate in actual racing series.
They are planning to make a demo-run all over the world as a promotional activity.

Front part looks bit bulkier & also carries the new facelift shape. It seems new Prius GT300 will have FR layout with RC F engine.
Just re-read the regulations, the driven wheels can be changed (from FWD to RWD).

Why Nissan don't have a team in Super Formula? Honda and Lexus clearly have technical advantage using info from their SF engines to build pre-chamber ignition. I'm afraid Nissan with their electro-trend just have no spare resources for R&D in that area and GT500 will have to get some kind of gentleman agreement to use more common parts in engines which is going to make it not so spicy as it is nowadays.

Looks and sounds great. Definitely has the RC F GT3's V8 in it. No other engine made by Toyota would fit the application and sound like that.

Yeah, I'm also glad Prius GT300 still exists. I thought it would be replaced by another model.
