Following the opening of its new headquarters and development centre, Nismo is set to develop a line-up of performance-orientated Nissans.
Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Nissan, said: "It would be unthinkable for us to develop a range of Nismo road cars without including the GT-R. The standard road car is a global supercar and the GTR's performance on track reflects the passion and talents of the Nismo team. The GT-R Nismo will be special."
Currently the standard GT-R, which is powered by a 542bhp 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6, is capable of sprinting from 0-62mph in three seconds flat.
"We know that enthusiasts around the world will be itching to know more about the forthcoming GT-R Nismo," said Shoichi Miyatani, president of Nismo.
"It's too preliminary to share any details yet, but fans can be certain we'll be applying all of our motorsport expertise to creating a GT-R Nismo worthy of the name."
Besides the Nismo badging, these models feature styling, interior and performance tweaks to differentiate them from the standard versions.
Due to go on sale next year, the new GT-R Nismo will be available alongside the standard version in Nissan's specialised GT-R dealerships.
