    Nissan GT-R v 997TT - comparison on paper

    Nissan's latest 'Godzilla' (as we call GTR's here) is back with a DSG box that handles 997TT style power and torque.

    Why can't Porsche produce PDK!!?? What on earth are they doing? Milking the Clients with their marketing machine. Stop it! Start making leading cars - not catch-up cars! While I'm on it, check out the technology in the 430 Scud. Imagine what a GT2 could do with that. Anyway ...

    The Nissan will cost somewhere between 1/3 to 1/2 of the 997TT 's price, had the same power, and slightly less torque. Here's the story:

    from drive.com.au

    Godzilla's back! Pictures of Nissan's next-generation GT-R have been released ahead of the 353kW sports car's Tokyo motor show debut. JEZ SPINKS reports.

    The long wait is over for Nissan's next-generation GT-R after the Japanese car maker released official pictures ahead of the iconic sports car's debut at next week's Tokyo motor show.
    Nissan has distributed images unexpectedly before Tokyo after US magazine Motor Trend published an image of the new GT-R on its latest front cover.
    The GT-R drops the Skyline name for its latest iteration that will become more of a global car than any of its predecessors, although Nissan Australia is fighting to bring the car to Australia before 2009.
    "We've been told [by Nissan Japan] we won't get delivery of the GT-R until 2009, after Europe and the US," says Ross Booth, Nissan Australia's general manager of marketing and PR. "But we're not accepting that; we're still pushing for 2008."
    Nissan Australia didn't officially import the last-generation (R34) Skyline GT-R, but isn't concerned it doesn't yet know how many of the newest version will be shipped from Japan.
    "There's no great expectation for volume but it's going to be a bedroom wall poster car," says Booth. "It will be a great image car for Nissan."
    The GT-R pictures follow years of Nissan teaser concepts and spy photos, and the production version stays close to the styling previewed by the 2005 GT-R Proto concept. The headlights are less dramatic than the concept's, but the GT-R's famous four 'stove' lights dominate the rear - along with a bootlid-mounted spoiler - as expected.
    Specifications will be confirmed at the 2007 Tokyo motor show, although the GT-R will be powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6 and again employ an all-wheel-drive system. The new V6 is reported to deliver 353kW of power and 588Nm of torque, and Nissan is said to claim the GT-R sprints from 0-97km/h in 3.5 seconds and complete the quarter-mile dash in 11.7 seconds. Top speed is reportedly 310km/h.
    Drivers will change gears using a dual-clutch six-speed transmission similar in operation to Volkswagen's DSG system, and paddleshifts can be seen on the GT-R's steering wheel in the official interior photo.

    One interior picture reveals three switches on the instrument panel that indicate the driver will be able to choose different settings for the all-wheel-drive system (torque distribution), suspension (softer or firmer), and traction control (on or off).
    The GTR's 353kW power output is identical to that of the Porsche 911 Turbo, which has been used as a benchmark by Nissan engineers. The 911 Turbo has been spotted regularly alongside GT-R prototypes at both Germany's Nurburgring and America's Laguna Seca circuits.
    Word in the industry is that the GT-R has lapped the Nurburgring in 7 minutes, 38 seconds, which beats the 911 Turbo's time around the same 21km loop.
    Nissan's hero car will be genuine rival to the 911 Turbo based on the claims. The Porsche takes 3.7 seconds (with Tiptronic auto) to perform the 0-100km/h sprint and has a top speed of 310km/h.
    The Nissan GT-R hits Japanese showrooms in December with a price tag of $77,000. Expect the company's halo sports car to break $100,000 when it lands locally, which will still make it significantly more affordable than the $334,400 911 Turbo.
    The Skyline GT-R was affectionately dubbed 'Godzilla' by Australian car enthusiasts after its giant-killing touring car performances in the early '90s.

    Re: Nissan GT-R v 997TT - comparison on paper

    sorry, but the 997TT weighs 300 lbs less, has more power and more torque. say goodbye to the GTR. the 997TT ,Z06 and SRT10 will wipe the road with the GTR.

    the 7:38 is complete BS imo. the closest "thing" to this car is the Gallardo Spyder. awd. ~3800 lbs. G has some more power, GTR has a bit more torque. the G laps the Nring in 8:01. dont be surprised if this car doesnt break 8 minutes in the hands of SA.

    Re: Nissan GT-R v 997TT - comparison on paper

    Three things must be changed on the GT-R

    - Front bumper
    - Rear spoiler
    - Decrease price from $85k to $45k

    And I'll buy one as a fun car

    go do some research before you talk, even the last generation GT-R can complete the ring in 8 seconds.

    as much as I love Porsche, and look aside, GT-R is the true competitor of 997TT in terms of performance.

    Re: Nissan GT-R v 997TT - comparison on paper

    +1, GT-R will be the fastest Japanese super car when it come out...

    Re: Nissan GT-R v 997TT - comparison on paper

    Nissan missed the target. They had a clean sheet of paper to start with and they come up with a heavy and quite ugly front engine coupe.

    It might keep up with a 997TT to 80mph, then its weight and aerodynmics will make it slooooooooowwwwwww by comparison.

    Sum up: Soon to be hero car for Anime loving Hillbillys everywhere.

    Wow... complete the ring in 8 seconds? That IS amazing. That must be what that goofey wing does... it can fly!

    Re: Nissan GT-R v 997TT - comparison on paper

    Yawn. . .

    Re: Nissan GT-R v 997TT - comparison on paper

    From an engineering perspective, the GT-R has always been Japan's endearing world beater super coupe.
    This new version should be more of the same.

    But the styling is nothing short of an abortion!

    What the hell happened to the ORIGINAL styling concept they showed in 2001?! Now that was a sexy car I think anyone with half a sense of style and aesthetic would leave a deposit on!
