    should be below $30K, slightly detuned STI engine, 6-spd, awd...

    finally kick ass turbo awd performance in an affordable respectable looking package..

    I loved the looks of the pics that were posted a few weeks back. And if truely is the S401 platform detuned then it might be worth a look.

    WHat Nissan is doing today is the exact example of what I dont like. I remember when Nissan had the following;

    Skyline GTR = RB26DETT
    Skyline R32 GTSt = RB20DET
    Skyline R33 GTS2.5T = RB25DET
    300ZXTT = VG30DETT
    180SX = CA18T
    Silvia = SR20DET

    Each car had its own personality. Thats not they way it is today.

    And due to this lack of similar platforms Nissan was quickly going out of business. In todays market you can't afford to have multiple platforms.

    nissan was going out of business because of a LOT more reasons than that... a major reason was their finance division

    basically the same thing as the audi A6 biturbo, but downmarket. think about it.

    S4 motor into the larger, more luxuirous A6

    STi motor into the larger legacy

    i think it looks very classy.. i know what you mean about accord and camry, although i think the tails are more s60/s80 if anything..

    in either case, it would make hell of a sleeper.. Should do low-mid 13s from the factory, and can probably go into 12s with $2000 or so ;)

    i've been dreaming about a big, good looking affordable sedan with awd and a stick forever..

    plus its a car you wouldnt worry about attracting too much attention ;)

    Nissan no longer has as many cars

    Skyline (RWD) = VQ35DE
    Skyline (AWD) = VQ30DET
    350Z = VQ35DE


    so many cool cars are dead.
