This past months of "sport compact car magazine" just showed the new "infiniti GT-r" They say that it will come as a 07 modle in 06'.

This may or may not be old news but i guess now it is official the gtr is no longer the gtr but a fancy g35. Oh well, i guess I know what car I'm going to test drive next year!

yeah I was reading up on that also......they are talking bout having different variations of the G35. pretty much how the Skylines are different from GT to GT-R. the new skyline from what Iv'e heard from a friend who works for nissan I will try and see if he can back me up on this when I see him to verify everything (don't wanna sound like an ass with missinformation) but they are going to build and sell the G35 coupe with the VQ30DET and VQ35DETT motors, pretty much if it goes through VQ30DET will be compared to the GT (RB25DET version) whereas the VQ35DETT will be compared as the GT-R (RB26DETT) power plant motors, different chasis but same body style without front airdam scopes, and i think different piping setups for the intercooler, maybe some other variations to make both models stand out. NOt sure about AWD with the VQ35DETT. am I making a little sense of this subject?? I think i might of went a little to far actually might of went over my head with this one but like I said Ima ask my friend to see if he can actually verify some of the stuff that I mentioned above. but don't take my word, so far it is just word of mouth hence forth a rumor according to websters dictionary.

but still doesn't make that much sense to me to have to sell the G35 with two different motor plants, I can understand going all out and buying the VQ35DETT, but than I can see that if you don't have the money for it just opt for the VQ30DET. at least it is still a U.S. manufactured skyline (badge already attached with the car, not aftermarket bought) than getting one shipped from japan if you have the money.

a vq32dett would be nice. and its supposed to have an updated ATTESSA and AWD system, although ive been hearing nissan is dropping the HICAS from GT-R fame.

a VQ30DETT is what is being used in JGTC as they mentioned in SCC. Should be a beefy powerplant.


yea most rumors are circling around a twin turboed vq30 or vq32. either one is alot more likley than the v8 people seem to think that will go in, since the R&D is already done on the vq30 from jgtc.

japan was offered many different engine options for the g35. vq30de vq35de and a vq30det.
Uhhh...the G35 doesn't have a turbo over here. And the engine options that I know of are the 2.5 and the 3.5 I haven't heard of the 3.0, but that doesn't mean it isn't there...I just haven't seen it.

The 2005 G35 sedans already come with the attesa awd system as an option. It makes sense that they would eventually put it in the coupe. I don't know what they will do about engine changes but greddy offers a twin turbo kit for the VQ35.
I was pissed that Sport Compact Car claimed that it uncovered "everything you wanted to know" about the "new GTR".
They didn't uncover a damn thing!
They gave us a picture of a G35 coupe, LHD, with a spoiler and a foreign plate on it.
the rest of the article was all speculation.
Thanks SCC. Thanks for nothing!
At least the Tommy Kaira R33 was worth the price of the magazine.

it wasnt g coupe. if you looked closely the body lines are a tad different, same with the lights and front air dams. and dont expect the gtr to look a whole lot different. the r34 models had minor changes from trim level to trim level.

I didn't notice until you said something, but the rear fenders start widening from the doors instead of 3 inches from the wheelwells. I had noticed the front bumper but I just dismissed it. I don't see anything different about the lights. Oh well, wish they had some hard facts for us though.

as final design, its either going to be it or its not. but as far as engine wise, ghosn himself has mentioned use of either a twinturboed vq32 or vq30.
