I'll bet Elon Musk LOVES reading statements like that.

I _still_ say this would be a major tipping point.

And I don't buy that Nissan, maker of the world's best-selling full-sized 
electric vehicle, can't make an high performance electric vehicle. The cheapest 
GT-R listed on Nissan's Web site is six figures. With that kind of budget, any 
competent hobbyist can do an electric conversion of a classic sports car that 
would mop the floor with any of Nissan's GT-Rs. And do it with Leaf battery 
modules, too!

I don't think he does. Tesla shareholders focused on quarterly earnings 
statements likely do, but I think Musk himself would much prefer a world in 
which ICEV manufacturers made a rapid transition to EVs than one in which Tesla 
remained the dominant player in a niche market.

Never mind the electrification of Teslas; ignoring the drivetrain, they're 
cranking out innovations left and right that could just as well go in ICEVs but 
which still set Teslas beyond the competition. Even if Teslas had a 
conventional drivetrain they'd be the talk of the town.

If all the major manufacturers went electric overnight, Tesla would still be 
every bit as competitive as they are today...but we would _all_ breathe 
easier

As the current Nissan GT-R gets older, rumors seem to be popping up with
increasing frequency about what tech might be in store for the next
generation. Hopping right over all of that speculation, one Nissan exec is
now talking about his dreams for the company's halo model even further into
the future. Regardless of whether a hybrid GT-R could be on the way,
European EV Director Gareth Dunsmore thinks a fully electric version could
happen one day.

"I can't see a technical reason why we wouldn't be able to implement
electric vehicle technology in something like a performance vehicle,"
Dunsmore said to Top Gear. Although don't get too excited yet, Godzilla
fans. "We can't build an electric GT-R today," he admitted. "But do I want
to? I'd love to."

According to Dunsmore, there're still many steps before the GT-R could go
fully electric. The team and Nissan would need to prove than an EV could
really take on the best performance cars out there. "It needs to be a world
beater," he said to Top Gear.

The dream actually echoes rumors from years ago. As far back as 2010, Nissan
was reportedly at least toying with the idea of making the GT-R into an EV,
among some other options. The concern then was that Godzilla might be
silenced by tightening emissions standards.

In 2010, an electric GT-R was probably still too avant-garde to actually
happen, but things have changed. A Tesla Model S in Ludicrous mode can hit
60 in a claimed 2.8 seconds, and it's not designed to be a laser-focused
sports car. Imagine what could be possible, if Nissan aimed a production EV
solely for performance.
