$100,000 for a V6tt? No thank you.
GT-R era is dead to me, right after Z-tune was released.

I actually like it. It's very aggressive and looks much better than most JDM cars.

+1

a light 6 cylinder will do better than a heavy v8. the 6 cylinder engine in the old skyline was capable of 700+hp after some tuning work...power will not be a problem.

997 is a Totally different car. The car has proven itself. It's sets a benchmark for the competitors. What Nissan is doing with the VR motors is yet to be seen. Keep in mind this new motor is a redesigned engine based of the Le man car. It will also be using the new "Integrated Exhaust Manifold Turbine" so upgrading it won't be as easy like in the past. It's to soon to speculate, but i can't justify paying that amont of money into V6 coupe regardless the power. The car has still yet to prove itself.

I keep hearing people bringing this up. Same thing with the 335i.

Most people would change the manifold along with the turbo anyway, it's not really a big deal at all. Look at the SRT-4, mani and turbo are one piece, did that stop people from swapping the turbo?

I've also heard rumors, supposedly from people close to the project, that the GT-R motor, in stock form, was tested to be reliable at 800hp.

As far as the price, the GT-R is supposed to be quite a bit less than $100k. If I recall correctly it's going to starting mid $60k to $70k.

Agreed, Nissan would have been more successful with the earlier Skyline in the U.S. this new car doesn't excite me much. $100k seems a bit high, I agree caddy johnson, $70k seems more reasonable.

Where do you get 100K ??? In Japan is half the cost of the Turbo Porsche ... if pricing stays that means 60K here (120K / 2 = 60K)

7,900,000.00 JPY = 68,770.34 USD (converted via www.xe.com) Look at the last line of the chart below.

Org the article is from 7tune.com

http://www.7tune.com/?p=106

base-model (6,600,000 Yen/$55,500), V-spec (8,000,000/$67,225), and Evolution (12,000,000/$100,800). It is thought that all three models will be fitted with the same powerplant, however, putting the entry-level GT-R on the market at such a competitive price naturally means that certain sacrifices have to be made, and hence cost-cutting measures are likely to result in fewer high-tech adornments in comparison to the upper echelons of the GT-R model spectrum. While both the V-Spec and Evolution models are likely to be fitted with a semi-automatic dual clutch DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox), boasting six-speeds, and similar in nature to the R-Tronic system found on the new Audi R8, the prohibitively high cost of this piece of state-of-the-art gadgetry means that such a gearbox will not be finding its way onto the base model, which will duly have to make do with a cheaper, and, no doubt, slower six-speed manual transmission. The base model also makes do with four-pot calliper brakes, while both the V-spec and Evolution are expected to come complete with six-pot calliper systems. Although, Skyline GT-Rs, from the nascent R32 onward, have customarily been equipped with Brembo brake systems, it appears that Japanese firm Akebono, with their recent foray into Formula 1 in partnership with McLaren, may also be in contention to supply brakes for the new GT-R.

While the V-spec GT-R gains a two-pedal DSG transmission and six-pot callipers over the standard car, it will also differ cosmetically, with a more prominent rear wing and rakish front bumper. The V-spec will also sport lighter alloy wheels. Meanwhile, the GT-R Evolution, currently pencilled in for release a year after the standard car, in Autumn 2008, will be to the GT-R what the GT3 is to the Porsche 911: a stripped-out, lightweight road-racer, set to form the basis for the NISMO machines participating in the Japanese Super GT Championship. As with the 911 GT3, the GT-R Evolution will do away with its rear seats and make extensive use of high-tech materials in the pursuit of lightness: the bonnet, rear wing and diffusers will be hewn from carbon fibre, while the standard steel doors will be replaced by aluminium items. It has also been postulated that the Evolution will be home to a hand-built, hand-fettled version of the standard car's engine however, power output and performance are not expected to differ overtly from the standard powerplant. Cosmetically, the Evolution will gain an even more agressive rear wing, while certain pieces of carbon fibre trim are expected to remain unpainted.
