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


AutoWeek | Updated: 02/27/07, 2:00 pm et
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. Eagle-eyed shooter Paul Sterling caught these shots as a partially-camoflauged GT-R ran some hot laps on Feb. 12 at Infineon Raceway in California.
Paul Sterling
Word at the track was the GT-R was pumping out close to 500-hp from a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6.

Word at the track was this GT-R was powered by a 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 making 500 hp, sending power to all four wheels via a paddle-shifted transmission. Despite Nissan's assertions that the car will not be Infiniti-badged, an engineer called the car a "2008 Infiniti Skyline GT-R." No matter what they call it, the production car premieres this fall at the Tokyo show, followed by a U.S. introduction in 2008.

Good luck; as a resident your gf will be neck-up in loan payments and being paid worse than a waiter. The car rumored to cost around 70k.


I want one too but won't be able to afford it.

Well...she's not going to be a doctor. She's going for cardiovascular perfusion. She'll have about $50K in loans I think with average starting pay ~$64K and median pay at $110K.

I myself like my WRX....surprisingly enough, she does now too!

OT: Why doctors drive nice cars...

Don't feel bad for med students. A friend of mine who became a country doctor paid off her school loans by working part-time at a regional trauma center. Sure, she owed something like $100K, but she was making $150 an hour at her "part-time" job...

Has any car ever been "spied" as often as the GT-R has been in the last couple months?
