i love them all, actually. someday i want a KPGC110 2000-GT-R (1973).

i don't agree with the notion that the new GT-R isn't worthy. i think it's a proud kick a$$ continuance of the iconic legend. i want one.

Yes I agree I think the car is worthy but I am sure it won't ever get the same respect as the old one's. When people mention a Skyline GT-R it was always a cut price super car that came to mind and very few people could actually get there hands on them. I know we all have our reasons why we got into GT-R. Mine was that it was a car that wasn't know by everyone and everyone couldn't have them. And Bonzelite...you know where I am coming from because we live in the same country. Many still believe to this day that skylines in north America will cost you $80,000-$100,000+ or it is impossible to get them in still which is total BS. I refused to believe that Motorex were "The only Skyline GT-R importers in the USA" and years went by I was one of the lucky few. And it wasn't through Motorex either. There are cheaper ways to get them and since the price of the Mighty second Generation GT-R's have greatly decreased IMO means just about anyone can have their dream car. I like the new GT-R a lot. But I don't love it... And the fact that it will be a global car I don't think I will love it anytime soon. If it was like the old one's (R32~R34) which were sold EVERYWHERE else but USA...then I might be interested. GT-R enthusiast in the states know how hard it is to get them here. That thing looks nothing more than a 350z, G35 coupe and a mix of something else put together and called it GT-R. But I did see the Ferrari someone posted and someone is copying someone. Either Nissan copied the Ferrari design or vis versa.

consider as well that the GT-R of new will not be in the hands of many, either. indeed, it will be far more accessible, but i doubt we will see it selling in huge quantities. it will still remain an exclusive sports car. yes, the mystique of it's rarity, ie, the older cars, may somewhat evaporate. but i don't think the car will be any less exclusive. the market of potential buyers for expensive and largely impractical sports cars has always been small. the GT-R will not become the next Toyota Camry. it will occupy the niche belonging to Porsche, Corvette, BMW M5, Viper.

IMHO, the GT-R retains many of the cues from the R34, it's boxy/angry athletic appearance is maintained. it does share the new look of the latest Nissan sports car shapes. this is simply the direction Nissan has gone. to me, the GT-R is far boxier and stand-apart than the G, Z, Maxima and Altima. it has a more raw appearance than the Z or G by far, even though upon close scrutiny the GT-R is highly subtle and refined. it's actually very elegant yet brutal at the same time, exactly what the GT-R has been since it's inception.

which GT-R do you have? i have a 1992 R32 GT-R. it's in pieces right now. how about you?

ps. head designer at Ferrari is a Japanese man. hint, hint

I have a 02 R34 GT-R. I will be in CA soon. Do you want to meet up sometimes haha. It would be nice to see another GT-R owner. I heard there will be three different types of GT-R guys. Since I am not good at posting pictures I am sure this will interest most here that are looking forward to the Nissan GT-R. Now this....has gotten more even more interested!

Eh? Was the 288 GTO forced induction ?????

I know the Evolutione Version was as it was basically the prototype F40 underneath but the 288 GTO; a turbo - not according to my memory.

Seems like the supposed "photochop" in this thread:

https://www.gtr.co.uk/forum/upload/71...-gt-r-evo.html

actually agrees with the acticle on freshalloy.com

Interesting.

GTO is boosted, mate.

"...288s run special twin-turbo super-duty Ferrari 3.0 V8s with intercooled turbocharging that raised power output to an advertised 400 hp..."

5-liter 288 Power

it will get a V8 with 3 turbos, and 550,43578 HP.

Nissan flew to the moon to get some revolutionary metals to use in the car, . . .
