I tried a few search but would like to know... You remember in march 2010 for example, you were able to buy a 2011 GTr... A 2012 GTr could be purchased in january-february 2011 and so on... If I purchase another GTr (sold my 2012) in march 2016, will it be called a "2017 GTr" or they changed that!?

You are correct...the US model year is selling in the way you described.

I worked this one out recently with some help from others here.
If you buy a GTR in 2016 that has a build plate stamped 2016 and you are in North America, it will be considered a 2017. I'm sure there must be a reason for this but it really makes no sense at all.
The rest of the world would call it a 2016 simply because it has a stamped plate under the hood that says its a 2016.
Other parts of the world also refer to the series number. For example the GTRs that have been built in the factory for all of 2015 are called the series 7 GTR.
Depending on if there are changes from this November then the 2016 builds may be a series 8

We are now in march and dealer says that no GTr are built this year until june for a 2017 model... All of the GTr now are built mid-2015 so stamped 2016... Anybody can confirm that they are indeed not producing any GTr this year in march-april?

The refreshed GT-R won't be seen until the auto show at the end if this month, and I would not expect them to start showing up until late summer as 2017's.

It's being unveiled March 25 at the NY auto show.....but not sure what the lag time would be from the show to release.
