    Nissan GTR Concept Testing

    Very cool (japanese) video of the upcoming GT-R (Nurburgring sounds funny in japanese )

    The most interesting thing is that there is always a 997 Turbo close by whenever the GT-R appears, that's a lofty goal Carlos Ghosn has set for the GT-R

    911 Turbo performance for 911 Carrera price, now that would be something....

    Thanks for the link Temm! I wonder what kind of engine they will use for the new GTR

    Didn't the Americans already do that with the Z06

    The web has anything from a 3.8 litre twin-turbo V6 to a 4.5 litre V8, so take your pick
    But they all seem to agree that it will have about 450 hp.

    ... plus the better built quality of a Nissan in comparison to the Corvette (no harm meant).

    No harm taken, after driving a '84 Corvette (I can verify that it'll do 147 mph) and a '89 Corvette Convertible I know all about Corvette build quality.
    Can someone please send a memo to GM telling them where Audi buys their plastic

    Or wait, maybe this post wasn't meant for me

    Re: Nissan GTR Concept Testing

    LOL... if nissan continues with the tradition of using basically a truck block... there will be tuned versions of this car approaching veyron territory...

    Re: Nissan GTR Concept Testing

    Isn't it interesting that they have a 911 turbo following right behind the GTR concept for benchmarking at the Ring. I have a feeling that they will make sure that they match GTR's peformance at least on par with if not exceed the 911 turbo.

    I'm pretty sure the Corvette development team did the same thing. I want to say Dave Hill said they bought a 996 Turbo and used it during all Z06 testing

    Re: Nissan GTR Concept Testing

    This car should be so much fun. I can't wait till it comes out.

    As for quality vs. the Z06, Nissan isn't winning any quality awards (the Corvette is listed on JD Powers and Associates). Nissan and Chevrolet are rated very close to each other. GM also has some winners in their class. The build quality is much better than in the past. My '85 and '87 Corvettes couldn't hold a candle to my '06. Please don't live in the past. It's like saying an F430 needs to have major service every 4,000 miles like a 308 did.

    Also, the GM team did have a 996 turbo and an F360 present during development of the Z06. Ford took apart an F360 and reverse engineered it when they were building the GT.

    Re: Nissan GTR Concept Testing

    Yeah no doubt about it, this car is going to haul. I'm interested to see what colors they offer, Silver just doesn't fire me up. Now the blue that Nissan already offers on the 350Z, wheew that DOES get me going

    You are correct with that.

    Re: Nissan GTR Concept Testing

    No harm here either...

    Re: Nissan GTR Concept Testing

    This car is going to be a fantastic poor man's 911 Turbo! I can't wait for it to arrive, I want one!

    Re: Nissan GTR Concept Testing

    400 or 450 hp?

    That would only apply if the Turbo came second. However, it's easy to take apart a car, reverse-engineer it and test your copy against it on the track just enough to match its performance.

    That said, I have a feeling that these cars are among the last of their kind, with all the global warming hysteria. Ten more years and we could be looking at the Porsche 911 1.2 Hydrogen Turbo hybrid with a whopping 75 bhp and the Ferrari 130 with the Manettino switch to help transfer all its power to the humongous 155/65 ZR13 tyres . Every tree hugger's wet dream.

    At this point Id say you still will get a 3.6 liter 911, but in 10 years it, along with everything else will weight 6000 lbs with all the batteries from the hybrid motor!:(

    Another video of the two "buddies" (GT-R and 997 Turbo)

    The latest picture, from gtr.co.uk, this car is going to look

    Re: Nissan GTR Concept Testing

    I like this car, but at which price will be sale? 80k Euro 90k Euro 70k Euro
