2007? There would be 3 more years for Infiniti to create a sporty image before GTR comes to the U.S.

thats what i thought with the 2007, probably want to make the infiniti brand stronger before bringing the last and possibly the highest priced car over.

You're assuming it looks good, right?

Here but it will need to be merged with the 1000 other threads we have about the GTR. Plus this is not exactly new news.

Nissan Skyline GT-R coming to U.S., but not until ’07


By MARK VAUGHN

NISSAN CHIEF CARLOS Ghosn confirms the Skyline GT-R will debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2007, with customer sales starting soon after that. The car will make “around 400 hp” and offer “top-level driving performance.”



Video game fans on these shores who have long enjoyed the high-speed thrills of the GT-R will have a chance to drive it (so long as they can pony up the cash). Ghosn says the car will be sold here.

Sure, but why the long wait? Well, it’s not as bad as the first proposal, which was for a 2008 or 2009 GT-R launch. And, if you haven’t noticed, Nissan has been working on a lot of other products lately—and doing a pretty good job with them, too—so there weren’t spare engineers to toil away on a fairly low-volume supercar. At one point, the company was looking for a partner to help share development of the GT-R, but could not find one with whom it was happy.

Ghosn says the GT-R will offer “top performance worldwide, not just compared to our cars.

“If you look at a car and think it’s a tiger, you’re not going to be happy if you get in and drive it and it’s a cat,” Ghosn explains.

Ghosn says the price will be relatively reasonable: “You won’t have the feeling you’re being ripped off.”

That’s still kind of vague, but it sounds like the GT-R will not be another half-million-dollar Enzo/SLR/Carrera GT supercar, at least not in the finance department.

The exterior will probably not look like the concept car shown at Tokyo two years ago, either, though the decision on which of many design proposals submitted has not been made.

I dont like the shape of that car at all. Personal opinion, of course.

Seems OK to me.

A bit like the offspring of three-way sex between a G35, a Ferrari, and a Corvette, no?

I thought the R35 GTR was the name of the concept vehicle, which became the Skyline, AKA G35 in America? I don't think the car we're looking at here is actually in production.

Okay. I get it, Nissan. You got it right when you designed the new Fairlady (350z). I think that design looks great. Now its time to grow up, and GET SOME DIFFERENT STYLING CUES FOR YOUR CARS.

All of Nissan's line looks like modified versions of the 350z.

I loved how the F1 had time to slow to a stop, get out of the car, and pose for a shot. Just as the guy poses, then the R34 flies by.

Car News briefs: GT-R has 911 specs, Nissan price; Lexus SportDesign, part IV


By AUTOWEEK

911 specs, Nissan price
We’ve already told you Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn has promised the return of the Skyline GT-R at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, followed by worldwide sales—United States included (AW, Nov. 3, 2003). Ghosn has said development time for a globally competitive car explains why the car won’t appear until then, but now he has narrowed the field of sports cars to a key benchmark for the next GT-R: Porsche’s 911. “It has really good performance” while having an affordable price tag, says Ghosn.

Doesn't sound like they're trying to blow anyone away with the specs, but on the other hand it will have 911 performance without the sticker shock.

The latest about the GTR from Ghosn is that it's delayed yet again. It's not a priority right now within Nissan. As you saw from the Detroit SHow, Nissan's priority was TRUCKS this year. And it's trucks for now. That's what they are missing, that's what has high margins. Though the GTR will be sold globally and possibly with a turbo engine outside North American and with a V8 inside North America. Sounds like we have to wait for another 2 years before we see it in dealerships.
