    That's good, maybe I'll have some $$$ to buy a new car by then. Of course if it's $45k+, then it'll be 2010 before I can get a US-spec GT-R :wtc:

    What Nissan is doing is looking at their home market, Japan. Toyota, Mazda, Mitsubishi, and Honda don't have anything in that class now. Toyota might in something like 2006. That would also make the design somewhat dated when the competitors show up (something that happened with the Z32). I guess they figure from that perspective, no one will buy it if it's released now. It seems to totally be overlooking the US market however, which will almost definitely be the biggest one for this car.

    Hopefully. :x:

    VQ > *

    Improved performance resulting from sound fundamentals
    The overall weight and size (overall height and width) of the compact VQ engine were successfully reduced by adopting a short-stroke design. The engine's simple construction with a smaller part count contributes not only to a lighter weight, but also to higher production efficiency and lower costs. Because its intrinsic performance was thoroughly enhanced without relying on variable mechanisms, the VQ engine delivers smooth and mighty power performance.

    Versatility for application to many different models
    Its compact size makes the VQ engine exceptionally easy to mount in a vehicle. The engine can be used on a wide range of models, from front-wheel-drive cars with a transverse powertrain configuration to rear-wheel-drive cars with a longitudinal powertrain layout, as well as on 4WD models.

    Continuous engine evolution
    The VQ engine is continuing to evolve, thanks to its superior design concept that was adopted when it was first developed. Its intrinsic performance has been continually improved through the adoption of new techniques for reducing friction and weight, resulting from ongoing technological advances. The VQ engine has constantly evolved to meet the needs of the times, such as by incorporating a variable induction system, variable valve timing, turbocharging and direct fuel injection, among other cutting-edge technologies.
