The forthcoming 2022 Nissan Patrol Nismo has been spied in the middle of a photoshoot in the United Arab Emirates.

The current Nissan Patrol, also sold as the Armada in the United States, was unveiled in late 2019 and the Japanese automaker clearly hasn’t wasted any time in creating a high-performance version. While it is unclear which markets will receive the new Patrol Nismo, the Middle East will likely prove to be its most popular market.

Like the original Nissan Patrol Nismo that was introduced in 2015, as well as other Nismo models, the vehicle featured in this video sports a host of red accents to differentiate it from the regular Patrol. More specifically, we can see bespoke front and rear bumpers that give the 4×4 some added road presence.

In addition, we can see that the 4×4 sports a spoiler stretching off from the roof, black pillars, a black front grille, and unique side skirts. It is also rolling on black and silver wheels that appear identical to the 22-inch Rays wheels of the 2015 model.

Engine details won’t be known until Nissan officially launches the vehicle but as the standard 2021 Patrol is available with the same 5.6-liter V8 as the pre-facelift model, there’s a good chance the updated Nismo variant will feature the same tuned version of this V8 as the older model. That could mean approximately 428 hp, more than enough to make the flagship Patrol feel quite brisk despite its size.

Porsche is finally lifting the veil off the new 992-based 911 GT3 during a special live-streamed event that will start at 9 AM ET.

The new Porsche 911 GT3 is going to be the first GT variant of the 992 model family, featuring a high-revving naturally-aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine that will be available with a seven-speed dual-clutch PDK or a six-speed manual transmission.

A few months ago, Porsche GT division boss Andreas Preuninger also revealed that the new GT3 is going to be the first road-legal 911 with double wishbones at the front axle. That’s huge news, especially for those customers that actually use their GT3s on track, while the wider tracks of the 992 body are also going to play a role in extracting even more speed around the corners.

Thanks to our countless spy shots over the years of the 911 GT3’s development -and a revealing sneak peek on video a few months ago- we also know a few things about its very aggressive aero agenda, which includes the gooseneck-style rear wing and a huge rear diffuser. Preuninger admitted that when they picked the new wing’s shape, it was purely for aerodynamic purposes, as the specific design allows them to take advantage of the wing’s entire underside.

But the biggest reason to celebrate the arrival of the new Porsche 911 GT3 is that a carmaker will offer you a new driver’s car with a naturally aspirated engine and a manual transmission in 2021. The fact that it’s a Porsche makes it even better.

Stay tuned for the full details after the big reveal.

 

Porsche isn’t interested in building a factory in China, even though the country is its biggest single market.

Last year, Porsche sold 272,162 vehicles and of those, 88,968 were delivered in China. That was more than the 80,892 vehicles sold in Europe and the 57,294 in the United States. While other premium automakers such as Audi, Mercedes and BMW, have decided to capitalize on growing Chinese sales by manufacturing vehicles locally, Porsche chief executive Oliver Blume said he doesn’t have any interest in following suit.

“It is a quality and a premium argument still to produce from Europe for China,” he told the Financial Times. “Today it doesn’t make any sense [to move production]. In 10 years, I don’t know. It depends a lot on how volume develops and also the regulations in each country.”

Blume added that by continuing to make the majority of Porsche’s new vehicles in Germany, it can maintain more stable prices. He added it is worth absorbing higher costs of production in Germany to protect the ‘Made in Germany’ image of the company (even though the Cayenne is built in Slovakia).

This isn’t the first time Porsche has poured cold water on the idea of it producing vehicles in the People’s Republic. In fact, Blume told Chinese media in early 2019 that it didn’t make any sense for the company to begin manufacturing vehicles locally.

While Porsche is sticking to its guns, a report last week suggesting it will open an assembly plant in Malaysia runs contrary to Blume’s statements. However, the veracity of this report remains unclear.
