Skyline Sighting: Nissan's next-gen GT-R caught testing in America

We're not sure what got into Nissan, but the company recently unleashed a truckload of engineering mules of its forthcoming GT-R sports car on public roads and racetracks from Bay City, Michigan, to Sonoma, California.

500hp and awd doesn't sound bad. It will be a street terror for sure.

I'm only 5'8" and when I test drove G35s and 350Zs I felt like I was in a tin can. If the Gt-R isn't much bigger it wouldn't get a second look from me.

If I want crazy speed and handling while feeling like my life is in danger..I'll buy a motorcycle.



That just shows GM to not leave any performance on the table and give us a car that feels like a real car. I just hope the 'Top Dog' Camaro can hold it's own. Of course an aftermarket twin turbo or supercharger package installed on my car won't be out of the question

Don't forget, this GT-R is gonna be priced HIGHER than a Z06.
They won't sell very many.

I didn't see the advertised price in the article. If it cost that **** much There shouldn't be too many ricers hacking the body, installing a half dozen wings and coffee can sized exhaust tips.

Yeah, that's what I don't quite understand about this car.
The design of the car looks like it's targeting a younger audience, but the price tag will target an older audience.
Definitely gonna be a neat car, but that strategy isn't gonna work so good.

There will be a few rich ricers putting a whole body kit on them . Not bad but as stated above the Z06 will probably stomp it and it not the SS (which will probably be in the same price range) will.

It is just a terrible thing when a ricer grows up, ets a good job and does not figure out that ricing out an expensive car is worse than doing it to a 10K dollar civic!

The ricer mentality, the only mental disorder that is not fully understood and there is no real cure. Some treatment methods include the torque of a nice American V-8 but then the same mentality corrupts it as well .
