    full of shit? how?
     
  5. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    I've talked with some skyline owners in japan about this car. They all hate it. Its first of all not a skyline with the racing heritage that gives the skyline its prestige. Its not about gears and wheels sometimes, but about the legacy of the car. Nissan understands this more than any other car maker. Were we dissapointed with the 350z? No, dont worry about this one. Nissan will make it all good soon enough. Look for a preproduction GT-R SKYLINE model sometime soon. Also, look for a preprodutcion 350zTT soon as well. Nissans back on track after a stint of suv insanity. CXant wait for the rx-8 and rx-7 in addition to the new supra coming 2004 or 2005!
     
  6. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    sorry mate, there are no more rx-7's

    the spirit-r was the final production model, a last hoorah if you will

    as for the rx-8, i like the rear doors

    and i have heard the supra has also been given the axe, though also that toyota are bringing out a v10 supercar

    looks like the skyline is the only one to survive the apparent ending of the "gentlemans agreement" in 2004

    and the 350zTT? i havent heard about that but if its true, niiiiiice the 350z looks like one sweeeeet ride
     
  7. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    The suicide doors on the Rx-8 are so awesome
     
  8. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    Actually mazda has 'almost' confirmed a successor to the rx7, a 2 door version of the rx8 with a more powerful 'renesis'engine. There will be no turbo production version of the 350Z, look at the new breed of JDM cars, they are going to larger capacity, very advanced, non-turbo engines. The age of turbo has sadly passed. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

    this is for every idiot that is saying that it is a bad idea for nissan to put a v8 in the car. some of the best cars in the world have v8s in them:360 modena,koenigegg cc,lotus esprit,opel astra,toyota gt1 and lets not forget nissans own r390gt1. i wouldnt say those are bad engines and i dont think anyone would dissagree with me. just because it has a v8 doesnt mean that it's a big stupid american POS.Believe me i hate the big american v8 as much as anyone but people still need to realise that it was an important technological step in the quest for horsepower and speed. the v8 that nissan would put into the gtr would probably be the same 4.5l from the fx45. hopefully they could squeeze 100hp/l out of it and it would destroy your precious r34. I like that car and all but it is way too over rated. yes it is a good car but it is nowhere near the best car in the world like so many people think it is. now as for looks i think if they cleaned up the front end on this so it didnt look so much like a bentley or something, i think it would be a great car.

    Alright. . .im very dissapointed about the ditching of the rb26dett(now i have to change my name) because it is so greatly engineered even for being old.

    the only reason i quoted you was because of your signature <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/angry.gif"></A> <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/angry.gif"></A> <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>
    yeh im mad <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>

    well everyone keeps saying"oh oh i hate this car now cus its ugly uuhh i hate it ggrrrr" you know and thats not how they should act its actually not that bad im sure its aerodynamic as shit i mean its nissan and their skyline if its not im a be pissed but i do think it looks pretty good not the first time i saw it but it kinda grew on me like mold on bread sslloowwllyy thats what i have to say about the body now the engine.

    well everyone keeps saying"oh oh i hate american muscle it shouldnt be in my favorite car i hate american muscle!! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>" and then the american muscle guys "oh oh oh duuhh i hate dem damned japs puttin american muscle into them damned jap cars growl/meow <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/angry.gif"></A> " well i dont like either of these people talking about putting american muscle into the skyline. ITS NOT AMERICAN MUSCLE. please understand this its not american muscle think about it this way.
    Skyline with inline six + 2 turbos = fast
    Skyline with V6 + 2 turbos = not as fast as old japenese ver.(basically dumbed down american ver.)
    Skyline with V8(jap engineered) + - 2 turbos(prob doesnt need that much power) = Damn what was that that just flew by us in america, ive never seen anything that fast here(because nothing is)

     
  11. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    what about my signature? and i highly doubt they would turbo the v8.they'l probably end up throwing the same damn french 3.5 in it with a turbo or two.
     
  12. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    cars you want to burn???

    give me $250000
    ill make any import to burn any $250000+ ferrari (maybe not koenneg or however you spell it those cars are CRAZY but maybe)
     
  13. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    i didnt mean burn as in beat in a race. Burn as in fire.
     
  14. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    Personally i dont like the design, I love american muscle, but i cant even imagine the posabillities of a Japanese V8, i love the inline 6, but change is sometimes good, especially from japan, just about everything they dab into becomes that much better... especially with cars...
     
  15. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    What the hell...what's with all these people calling ALL V8 engines "American Muscle"? STOP BEING IGNORANT!!! People have real serious misconceptions about the V8. Just because MOST American sports cars house a V8 in them as their powerplant doesn't mean that all V8s are American. It just so happens that American car makers have made it a tradition to use V8 engines in their performance vehicles...hey it's what they are best at. But lets face it their engine configurations are old and outdated, most of them still use pushrods, now that's a true American legacy, that might be dying out(very ancient technology but they get the job done). How many pushrod Japanese V8s have you seen in any of their vehicles? You never know, they might be the next ones to take up the V8 engine, anything Americans can make the Japanese usually make better. And last be not leastly (if not the most important factor) I don't care if all parts for the engine are alien made if the engine is designed and made in Japan...it's Japanese!
    If it's a TT V6 Superb!!! if it's a n/a V8 Excellent!!! either way the car is gonna kick ass! So stop whinning and get real the world is full of change and nothing is safe from it.

    Nissan havent evern offically said that this is the new Skyline GT-R. I recently purchased a Duke DVD titled Skyline GT-R which had a section which focused on the next generation. Its says that this may not be the car that makes it to production. It does say the car will be fitted with a twin turbo V6 with around 400 bhp on standard boost around 1.0 bar

  18. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    i cant see them puting the 5.6 from the titan in there.probably the 4.5 from the q/m45
     
  19. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    the skyline did not have a I-6 till 80's. the V-6 is better in that it is larger and for the new front-mid layout.
     
  20. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    look the Rb is old and heavier then new V-6s, so the Rb is a super strong turbo race engine from the 80's and one of the best engines ever built in japan its gone.
     
  21. Re: There are rumors that this will not be inline 6

    Thanks Jag, this is a really good picture of what the G35 GT-R will most likely look like. Except, it should be called the V35... or will the RB return...?
