Default 2012 Nissan Skyline Coupe/ Fuga, G37

Quote:
Seeing as the yet to be released Nissan Fuga received only minor influences from the Infiniti Essence concept car, which will be the first model to get a proper Essence inspired exterior design? The 2012 Nissan Skyline Coupe of course! It won’t get the Essence concept’s turbocharged hybrid system but will pack much more power than the current car.



The Infiniti Esscence caused a sensation among visitors to this year’s Geneva Motor Show, but it’s at next year’s New York Motor Show that they’ll be treated to the new Skyline Coupe concept featuring an exterior design closely resembling the original Essence show car.

In a previous report about the upcoming Nissan Fuga replacement, Holiday Auto (HA) have admitted that they were misinformed about the final design and that in actual fact the next Nissan Skyline (Infiniti G37) will showcase many of the design elements introduced with the Essence concept. This of course means we can expect the Skyline/G37 to closely follow the design of the Essence, albeit in a slightly smaller and more practical package without the Luis Vuitton baggage dispenser.




The new Skyline Coupe is expected to debut in October of 2012 and it’s by that stage that Nissan will have introduced more hybrid models in its line up, including the Fuga Hybrid to finally take on the Lexus hybrid sedans in the Japanese domestic market.

The 2012 Skyline Coupe won’t be turbocharged like the Essence, but will use the hybrid “3D motor” along with a 3.7L V6 to produce a total of around 450PS. The Skyline Coupe Hybrid will be the highest grade on offer and HA calls it a “high power luxury sports coupe”.

Apparently the 3.7L V6 hybrid will use only as much fuel as a 3.0L engine so it can boast a very environmentally friendly image despite producing power that puts it almost on par with the Nissan GT-R. The 2012 Skyline Coupe will get bigger (and wider) 20 inch wheels to cope with the increased power, although the chassis length and width and its double wishbone suspension won’t change from the current car.

The 2012 Skyline Coupe and sedan variant are expected to be shown as concepts at the 2010 New York Motor Show, with the prototype of the sedan to be shown at the same show the following year and it will go on sale in Japan in October 2011. The Skyline Coupe prototype will be shown at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show and will go on sale in the 3rd quarter of 2012.

If that's the case, why even bother redesigning it? It looks exactly the same!

That's because it is, it's right in the article. Inifiti doesn't sell cars in Japan, only Nissan; therefore, there's no such thing as an Infiniti G37 or G35 in Japan, it's always been called the Nissan Skyline there.

You missed his point completely. He means it looks exactly like the current G37...which it does.

power figures look good.
Big wheels and hybrid = 4000lb probably...
Hopefully handling won't be compromised.. Mustang & SHO already go fast in a straight line..

Admittedly the front and rear are very similar, but the profile view looks completely different. It's more Ferrari California than G37.
