Hi guys. Was up at nissan this morning getting the tracking on my front wheels done and trying to avoid being talked into a 4 wheel alignment (Just didn't have the time to wait around) and was talking to one of the salesmen. He is the specialist there for the new 350Z and was telling me that the new GTR has now been decided on and will be released early next year. He showed me a brochure which had one picture of the car inside it about 1.5" long by 1" high but it looks very much like a 350Z with afterburner rear lights. Anyone else know anything about the design etc being confirmed yet? If so can you post pics please?

No the Skyline and the GTR have now been separated by Nissan. I have no idea why but the new GTR will not be a skyline it will be a GTR. If you get my meaning. The new Skyline Coupe which has been in Japan for a couple of years now I think is ugly and horrible and looks, performs and sounds nothing like a skyline. The new GTR looks VERY much like a 350Z with afterburners and apparently will have a slightly higher tuned 3.5 V6 engine with twin turbos, but essentially will just be a 350Z with turbos instead of the new skyline :( Nissan have forgotten us and moved into the world of the Z car (That's what the salesman was calling the new bread of Nissan sports cars, Z Cars LMAO)

Nope that's definately not it. There is too much boot on that one. And the Rear lights are very much like the R34 lights only they are set further into the bodywork than they were on the R34. Also I think someone showed me those pics before and said they were a photoshop combination of R33 and R34.

Doesn't even have afterburners for gods sake. They've lost the plot. Someone at Nissan genuinely thinks the skyline was meant to be a family hatch back.

Well that is definately the shape. Not sure about the front as the only pic in the brochure was from behind. The salesman was telling me that it has a large black air intake on the front so is probably slightly different to that but that is DEFINATELY the shape.

That's what a lot of people thought. However if you read the first post in this properly you will notice that it has been confirmed in a brochure which was seen by myself earlier today in a Nissan showroom.
