R35 Skyline GTR

Just wondering what happened to the skyline and GTR? Do they still make it? If so has anyone got any pics or links?

And the same with the supra? is that still around aswell?

Re: R35 Skyline GTR

GTR is going ahead and should be released next year or the year after. I am not 100% sure if they have decided to go with the TT V6 yet.

Re: R35 Skyline GTR

They had a protype engine running around in an R34 in the JGTC. It was a twin turbo version of the 350Z with significant upgrades. The release has been very slow. The R35 Skyline was released a couple of years ago.

Re: R35 Skyline GTR

the final supra was made I believe in either 2002 or 2003. Due to increased emissions restrictions in Japan the Supra died.

Re: R35 Skyline GTR

I can remember an a while back that there was a Skyline concept in a Motor magazine that looked pretty sweet at a Toyko Motor Show. Skyline wasn't mentioned in the cars title but it was believed to be the upcoming R34. that was the last I saw of it though

Re: R35 Skyline GTR

It seems they're been putting off the R35 GT-R for ages now (talking years). If memory serves me correct magazines said it'd be out early 2004... The concept was well and truly out and around in 2002 i think?
Is there a coupe version of the R35 out yet? or only sedans?

Re: R35 Skyline GTR

Nissan boss has confirmed it for 2007 and that's all. No official word on power, engine configuration (although V6 would have to be the obvious one), or anything really!

Re: R35 Skyline GTR

i think since renault took nissan over there has been a lot of watching the budget. As far as I know, with previous GTR's there has been secretly no budget even with the company seeing a lot of red. But now Mr Ghosn had put a restriction, some say taken the fun out of building the new GTR.
