This is a long post, if you read any read ALL! I got the following reply to an email sent to consumer affairs at Nissan-Thank you for contacting Nissan North America, Inc. and allowing us the opportunity to be of assistance.Nissan is not marketing the GT-R in the United States. Basically, this vehicle needs a great deal of modifications to pass U.S. industry specifications on safety and emission standards. While there is no doubt that this vehicle do attract a lot of attention and command a high demand in the market, as is apparent in the markets in other parts of the world, the cost of modifications far exceed the profit possibilities of introducing the same vehicle here in the U.S.Please contact your nearest Nissan dealer or contact a gray market retailer nearest you. For additional information on the importation of gray market vehicles, you can contact either the EPA or NHTSA:EPA (202) 382-2504NHTSA (202) 366-9550Nissan does not recommend importing gray market vehicles due to time and cost factors. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to email me.Sincerely,LianaNational Consumer Affairs-That email was only edited for size. Now, we all know consumer affairs is full of crap anyway cause they won't tell you squat, but that response was to an email that read something like- Will Nissan be offering a Skyline GT-R in the US? I plead with you to do so. If the problem is making money you should realize that we in the US want something like the GT-R. Rich guys would buy it as a playtoy, and true enthusiasts would buy it for more obvious reasons. Right now, the only way to get our hands on this beloved vehicle is to import it through comapies like Motorex. etc... - Anyway, it was phrased better and stuff, but you get the drift. So, then I read in mags that they are bringing it as a form of the G35. "Yay!" not till 2007 "Nay!" Basically, I trying to say, if it happens, it isn't for a little while, and even then it will be watered down for at least a year, EVO-esk. Nissan, and all other car companies think of North America as some rich-arse stuck up group of yuppies who drive Vetts and get in wrecks, this perception is not likely to change for some time, thus we will not have a GT-R here anytime in the next five years, Skyline yes, GT-R, no.
