Doesn't look enough like a GTR should look, the desing is bland, and it looks like it was designed by the french.

Is it just me, or does the front look slightly TVR, and the back somewhat like the Veyron's? The roofline is dreadful

Still, who cares what it looks like, I wanna know what it goes like!

"Looks like hell" is a bit strong, but even so, it'd be sad to buy car's purely for their looks.

The rear wing is a little bit R32 like.
But where are the wide rear fenders as they are a trademark of the gtr.

But let´s see how it developes. When I first saw the R34 my first thought was " what a warthog" but now it is one of the most beautiful (and mean ) machines ever.

The final production car will be a great car I think.
Nissan wouldn´t dare to dissappoint GTR drivers and fans

I think it looks enough like the GTR lineage to pull it off.

I like it.

People don't but cars for there performce alone. The design is to far detached from the previous GTRs. It doesn't look like a GTR. If you take off the badges and forget the fact that's ment to be a GTR, it is unrecognizable as a GTR. Sure it still has round tail lights, but so do a lot of cars. Also, saying that the rear spoiler is remanisent of the R32 GTR is a bit of a stretch in making it a GTR. When you looked at the past GTRs there was no mistake from one model to the next that it was a GTR. When you look at a Porsche, Corvette, VW Beetle, Mini or other icon automobiles there is no mistake as to what it is. The GTR Proto may be mistaken for a Renault.

lineage

side reminds me of an R33, of course you have to eliminate the side slit/vent. The unusual roofline is typical of all GT-Rs. Never have I seen a GT-R with a roofline that would be considered "normal" for supercars.




The spoiler is OBVIOUSLY a tribute to the R32. There is no misconstruing Nissan's message in that area



The front is almost a clone of the R34 except a few modern touches here and there, mainly the vertical headlamps..but the basic stance and structure is all R34






It is hard to say Nissan hasn't done well on this car. That was what made the GT-R designs through the ages so special, the cars weren't designed to please everyone, yet lots of people loved them. It is possible that those of us that don't appreciate this new design still reside in a lower echelon of intensity when it comes to agressiveness in auto designs. This car is very agressive and I certainly like the abundance of homage to the GT-Rs of the past, but it is a design that is simply too unique and agressive from certain angles you have to wonder how profitable it will be.

Are you kidding me? You comparisons are a bit of a stretch. Up untill now there hasn't been a GTR that I haven't liked or would change. In fact the R32 GTR happens to be my favorit. Your comparison of the side happens to be of a Skyline GTS, whitch neither the Proto or the GTS have the trademark rear quarter panel flare. As for the front looking like a modern version of the R34 GTR, it would do a better job of it if there wasn't so much unpainted carbon. I say paint that carbon and let the air ducts speak for themselves. Sorry, but the roofline is the worst part of the desgn, and whats with the crease/character line on the C-piler behind the quarter window. The 2001 GTR prototype was more identifiable as a GTR than this design.

That seems to be the styling of the more modern S15, 350z..

I think it looks like a nissan and it has enough queues from the GTR lineage to pull it off.

it definately looks more skyline than any of the renault range I can think of.
