^^^Ditto, Atleast the "Concept" is A**. I've seen some computer generations and pics that people have down, it's like their own personal concept, I think these other concepts look SOO much better, here's my personal favorite, and what I think the new GTR should look like,

Whats with the cadillac bashing?

I'm glad they finally did something right and put a 5 speed in the CTS.

a large price to pay for a manual, riding in that horrible looking thing. Cadillac is a luxury marque and it should remain so, an autostick maybe but not a manual would be ok. GM is blurring the lines between it's divisons too much, they are beginning to compete with themselves for market share, I think that is the wrong direction.

the best looking concept was the one in Car and Driver a year or so ago. The silver thing they are pushing now needs to join the Expedetion and die.

if the concept looks anything like the CTS the designer needs to be shot no offence to Cadillac but the CTS is a disgrace to the cadillac name and if a skyline looks anything like it that would make me sick.

that site has one of the coolest mouse trail effects I have ever seen. But I too would like to see the official concept so I know what we are talking about. I'd search but I'm tired.

ok, so I lied and I searched and I found this link to another automotive forum discussing the same thing:http://www.automotiveforums.co....htmlinteresting thing they point out is that the concept is left hand drive. Also I remember seeing "concept" pics of the new skyline a few years ago and it turned out to be the G35.

Before I get flamed, I just was educated in the fact that the G35 is technicly the skyline just not the GT-R blah, blah, blah. I didn't know that until just now.

i thought the r34 was bulky, but in a muscular type of way, and the r33 were just cool lookin, low and mean, yet wide and aggresive, the r32 had those huge fender wells which made it look very aggressive

the thing that bugs me so bad isn't the look of the car. but the fact of a v6 makes me shake my head. i have a deep hate for v6's.a straight 6 is sooooooooooo sweet.

the new 2004 nissan GTR (the skyline title has apparently been dropped) will featurea heavily modified VQ35dett engine...twin turbo powered (as previous GTR's have been)offering a brand new updated AWD ATESSA system...suspension will be top of its class as ithas been with all previous GTRs...the engine will be putting close to 390 HP to the crank (ive been told 387 by nissan of america but well wait and see) the new GTR will undergo yet afew more body changes before its initial release in late 2004....im guessing that the front end will changea bit to make it a bit more palatable for the american audience...base price has not beendecided yet for the new GTR (my guess is it will be at least 45k for the new AWD monster)i will keep you guys updated on the new skyline when i find out more information

its nice having friends who work at nissan :D

That is a very oddly styled concept that deserves to be immediately shot with a Rheinmetall 120mm smoothbore HEAT round.

That ugly front box grille resembles the same cue on the new Audi TT concept, I hope both prototypes wind up being stillborn.

Powertrain sounds cool, though. Nissan just needs to get the skin right.

The text caption that goes with that may be news, but the pictures are old. That is perhaps the oldest concept pictures (of an actualy vehicle) out there.
