Altima Coupe or G35 sedan?

The new Altima ad makes the car look pretty cool. With 270hp, would you pick that over the G35 sedan (298hp?)??

Seriously? Absolutely not, RWD over FWD any day of the week for me.

Well, they say that they have fixed the insane torque steer that plaqued the last generation. But it's still FWD, so it's still a worthless piece o' crap.

Believe me - I know of what I speak. I owned a 2005 Altima 3.5. it has the same engine as the 350Z, just geared differently. But the diff between fwd and rwd is night and day (like I need to tell the people reading his forum). But particularly so with this hunk o' crap. When you launch my (previous) car two exciting things happen. First, the car jumps back onto its haunches, leaving you with no traction up front at all, despite the fact that that's were all the weight is. How Nissan accomplished this, I have no idea. Then, almost simultaneously, the steering wheel is wrenched from your hands. So who knows what direction you are going to be headed when your wheels finally find some grip.

I still think the Altima looks pretty, which is what (along with the low price) attracted me to it in the first place. But otherwise, it's pretty atrocious.
