New nissan Altima Coupe resembles G37

So wtf? whats the 350z gonna look like

A lot of g37 owners are gonna be disappointed when a ALTIMA Coupe pulls up next to'em and it looks very similar but was half the price. I know its not gonna perform like g37 but shit who goes that damn fast on the streets.

Im sorry but i had to add. Its a new car but why are all the car companies biting? Theres gonna be so many of these on the streets and I can already tell theyre gonna try and race me lol.

The Altima Coupe is called the "Poor Man's G37".........didn't you read it in Automobile.

350Z was the "Poor Man's G35"

Main reason is because the Altima coupe is FWD while the G37 is RWD. Completely different driving dynamics.

They need to beef it up smartly...

Also, it is not all in shaving off the weight and putting 800 HP under the hood.
I just read today the comparo (Popular Mech Magazine) of Porche Turbo (3600 lbs, 480 HP, <500 TQ) vs. C6 that is 3200 lbs, >500 HP, >500 TQ. Porche beats it 0-60, 1/4 mile all over the place...

a porsche is a porsche and a Z is a Z. No wonder why most of you guys here hate japanese cars. coz you compare them to german cars.

they're all different taste, and all different experience. Italian food is fancier than hotdogs, doesnt mean hotdogs are bad, or you shouldnt eat them.

all those people who owns those cars always stare at my car thinking they should have gotten a BMW, what a shame

when the new Skyline comes, even the Altima will look like it

The only car I'm really looking forward to from Nissan/Infiniti is the new Skyline GT-R. That will undoubtedly kick ass...may not be pretty looking or have the best interior...in fact I'll bet it will be all cheap plasticky inside...

...but the driving dynamics will make it all worth it...
