    I was over my buddies house tonite and he is a gtr fanatic. And he like showed me this nissan website that was in japanese and he translated it into english with some program he had and we found something interesting. The skyline is coming to the u.s. they said. By 2007 and the design looks for the most part like a 2002 skyline GTR V Spec II. They dont know a price range yet but they do know they have to downgrade it for us standards. I will post pics when i go to his house again.

    the 2002 GTR (R34) was discontinued in 2002, so I doubt if the skyline comes to the u.s. at all in 2007 it will look like a model released from 99 to 02. They already have an R35 concept car (bottom of the page):

    Just because they use the GT-R monikor doesn't mean it is going to look or perform (on US shores) like a GT-R is supposed to.

    nissan = fuckin ugly (the sentra and 350Z arent toooo bad)
    honda = fuckin ugly (the s2000 is pretty nice)
    mitsubishi = fuckin ugly (the eclipse isnt bad... the evo is ugly as fuck)
    subaru = they are comming around... the original WRX was ugly as fuck... they are making it look a little better now
    toyota = fuckin ugly
    scion = fuckin ugly (the new tC comming out looks nice though)

    i hate hate hate hate the new eclipse. mistu had it right with the 2nd gen

    scions are nasty, too

    evos would be cool if they didnt weigh so damn much

    i also heard that toyota is making a new supra, but it'll be a hybrid. it was in some magazine, i dont remember off-hand
