    Lets Talk About the Dreaded Skyline GTR

    Hi, I've been having interesting conversations about the Nissan GTR within my car club lately, and I would like to hear the thoughts and feelings of the guys at rennteam. 

    Some thoughts to consider:

     1) I really hope that the new PDK turbo will end all talks comparing a GTR with a turbo

    2) But what countermeasures will Nissan come up with, I've already heard of weight cutting initialtives.

     3) Who else besides me thinks while the front of the GTR looks nice, the side and the rear makes it look cheap and overly Japanesy (By that I mean like existing japanese models we see on the street, nothing ethnic)

    4)  How is it that from a cost of production and R&D standpoint, Nissan is able to set the cost point so much lower than Porsche; are we over paying for our Porsche's?

     

    Hope to hear your thoughts

    3) I've seen one in Geneva last week. Although I did not really like it in picture, it's a really impressive car to see for real... I thought it looked good ! (it was black)

    But it was not as impressive as the Veyron parked since a week in front of the hotel "Les Bergues" Smiley


    Re: Lets Talk About the Dreaded Skyline GTR

    I speculate that the early build PDK Turbo's will have a LOT in common with the GT-R - major gearbox issues handling all that torque!!

    Saying that, the new Panamera Turbo is meant to turn out 700Nm torque so it will be interesting to watch that space...
