The "next" gtr

Hi all, I was wondering if any of you had heard of anything in part about the upcoming gtr?
If my suspicions are correct the "next" gtr will not have anything in reference to the skyline, is this true?
I have access to nissan's site ftp files and folders and have not found a single thing on the gtr.
Mind you I've checked both english and japanese ftp folders and nothing, thought it would serve me of good use since my father works for nissan as IT Manager, but nothing found whatsoever.
When do you think someone will leak some information?
I have reason to believe that the "next" gtr should be in blueprints by now, I mean if they do plan to have it for 2007. Shame its going to come out that year, becuase since I live in the u.k. it will be about 2008 when I can purchase one, and if shipped globally as been said by Carlos Ghosn, it might be in the u.s. possibly by 2009!
What are everyones opinion on the upcoming gtr, would sure like to get some feedback from everyone here, thanks.

Regards,
-Dave

From what i have heard the engine has been developed and tweaked by Cosworth and its now finished. My suspicions tell me that after the poor reception the prototype got from the Skyline enthusiasts, Nissan has decided to re-design the car to resemble the r33/34.
Just my 2p worth

Be careful, you or your dad could get in trouble for looking at Nissan's files and giving out inside information to us But we do all want to know!

No new news on the next GT-R so I can't say anything.

Check the next GT-R section, which is where this thread should be moved to.

Why so?
You are owner of prospec no?
Is it possible that if the next gtr is imported to the u.k. it could affect sales of importation for r34, r33, r32, etc.?
I hope it would not interfere.

Well, my father would not get in trouble seeming as he needs to use the ftp to design and create pages for the local nissan dealer he works for.
I should check into it again, if I look into it again I might find something interesting. Will keep you all updated.

From everything I've been hearing, the new GTR will be in production 2007 to be sold as a 2008 model.

As for weather or not it is associated to the Skyline, no one knows. From all the appearance, and the fact that the concept didn't have Skyline written on it anywhere, only GTR and it was unvailed as the Nissan GTR, no mention of Skyline, it looks like it will be all on it's own.

As for the engine, it was originally stated that it will 'most likely' be equiped with the new VQ's (Nissan's newest powerhouse to replace the RB and all of it's other engines) and also was not going to be turbo'd. Of course, right after they said this they started running a VQ30DETT engine on the JGTC R34 GTR's, a turbo'd version of the VQ30, none of the production cars have a turbo VQ option. So, the speculation going around now is that they are running the turbo'd VQ engines in the JGTC so that they can develop it for the next GTR.

What Nissan actually does, is anyones guess, only they know. And they are doing a great job of being very tight lipped about it!

Having seen the front cover of Autocar last night I think Nissan are going to have to have a total rethink. For anyone who has not seen it, it has a picture of Toyota's proposed Supra. They have really upped the bar, mid engined 200mph+ performance 2 seater with Lamborgini type performance. It will make the proposed GTR look a bit humble in comparison.

You sure that that isn't the 'proposed' 4500GT, or 444GT or F1 or whatever they're calling it this week

Matt,

I really doubt the next Supra will be at that level from what I read over here.
I think someone got the wrong end of the stick and is thinking the 'new' Supra will be like Toyota's latest proposal for it's flagship sports car, which is supposed to be related to their F1 racing.
In fact in the latest Best Car mag, the new Supra didn't look that hot to me.
It's all press speculation though - until we actually see it - just like the next GT-R

To be honest I would take anything 'Autocar' says with a pinch of salt, they seem to make an alarming amount of stories up.

I agree, however I suppose the point is still the same. Toyota's flagship model regardless of name will be F1 inspired and be playing with the Ferraris and Lamborginis. Will Nissan's flagship be in the same league?

I personally think toyota is waiting for nissan to make a move or so I suspect. See, who brings out the "better" of the two. I think it will be something similar to what happened between Mitsubishi and Subaru. When Mitsubishi unveiled the evo 8 in the u.s. almost overnight Subaru released the sti which stiffened the competion and brought the issue more openly to the publics notice. Not only did they make a open and publicized challenge but they tried to humiliate Mitsubishi by sending in a 300hp wrc rally rival car; and leaving very close price range for subdued questioning. Meaning people would say, "hey for 2000 more I can get myself 40 more hp, why should I get the sti over the evo." I am sure something like that is bound to happen, sooner or later--a clash between both.
Personally, from what I seen, I think the "next gtr" is going to be very special, to be the hallmark of nissan I think, look how long they will take for it to come out.

Carlos Ghosn has made that an aware consideration, if Im correct all that he has stated as for the "next gtr's" power leads me to belive that it can easily be within porsches, lambo, and ferraris--same ballgame.

FYI, the current Stagea have a version running a VQ25 turbo.

No. Production doesn't start until a few months before the date of when dealers will get the cars, or at least this is the case with other cars. If production was to start now, the car would be in dealers a lot sooner than the 2007/8. Or they won't spend 4 years producing units (and a lot of units). When you say production, I assume you mean the final production model actually being in the factory and being produced by Nissan. 2007 will be the year the car's are in production, and 2008 in the dealers (late 2007/early 2008?).

Here? Nissan? But take any information from a club and with no authentification from the poster with a grain of salt.
