    This car managed to beat the 911 Turbo on Nordschleife even before having reached dealer showrooms.

    I'll definitely be looking at it next time I'm shopping for a M3. It sounds pretty badass based on the specs.

    The top pic makes it look like a cross between a Celica and a Chevy Cobalt.

    Nissan rocks!! I've been very happy with my Altima and I'm looking to purchase another Nissan now (a Quest Minivan though [​IMG]). The GT-R is awesome but may have to wait a few years until I no longer have passengers with car seats [​IMG]

    Unlike previous Skylines, this car was engineered with LHD markets factored in.
    The projected price is said to be around 70 large. Though with US$ being in the toilet, who the fick knows ? [​IMG]

    Some nice (albeit brief) videos of Autobahn, Laguna Seca, Nurburgring (in the rain!) all weather testing in the snow, and high speed laps in Arizona.

    Thought it was hideous 2 years ago and still think so. Great performance numbers though, beating a car that costs more than $50K more is very impressive. Already rumored that a hooked up version will come out in 2010 with a carbon and alloy body to reduce weight and further increase the numbers.

    It's yet another Japanese nerd car (along with the STi and the Evo 8): ugly, ungainly form follows function, but packed with performance.

    My sentiments exactly. It will likely sell out intially but its so ungainly looking that I wonder if the performance numbers and its reputation will be enough to make it a long-term sales success in the US. it could eventually suffer the fate of the NSX, still a beautiful car.

    Wow... see I thought the NSX was super generic looking.
