    GT-R

    What do you guys think? I don't like the fact that we might get V8 instead of Turbo version.

    The GTR and Skyline are two different vehicles.

    Jesus. Looks pretty good though, much better than previous concepts. Still think I like the last GTR better though.

    Well, it's not offical yet. There is a good chance that Nissan will drop the name Skyline from Skyline GT-R and just call it GT-R. But as of now, people still call it Skyline GT-R.

    however the design it, it will never again be a real Skyline. The are dropping the RB26DETT. The motor vehicle association in japan has a rule stating that no vehicles are allowed to be manufactured with a HP over 320 at the flywheel. Nissan, and other companies, had been lying to the government, say the GT-R34 produced exactly 320hp, when in reality it was mre like 400hp. The officials caught on, and checked out one of the Skylines from the showroom floor, found out the real potential and fined Nissan for producing it. So, no more inline 6 twin turbo Skyline. So whatever that is, it will never be a true Skyline GT-R

    Uhm, no. You are completely wrong. For one - it is 276bhp. For two - it was not law, it was an unofficial understanding. Be informed before you speak.

    so my reasons are off. Still that car will not have the Skyline motor, so it's not a skyline. Thanx for the flame though. What is the reason that Nissan no longer uses the rb26dett? you've made me curious.

    New technology, the engine has been in use since 1989 (i believe). Although, I still see it as a far superior engine to the VQ series.
