GT-R will be sold in U.S. with Nissan badge

By AUTOMOTIVE NEWS
AutoWeek | Published 04/12/06, 11:01 am et

NEW YORK -- Nissan Motor Co. will sell the high-performance GT-R sports car as a Nissan in the United States, not an Infiniti.

The car is due in the United States in 2008, about a year after a redesigned version goes on sale in Japan in fall 2007.

Infiniti dealers in the United States had clamored for the car. But Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Nissan Motor, said the GT-R is a Nissan in all other markets.

Ghosn spoke Wednesday at the New York auto show.

Wonderhow well it'll do in the US? Sure many car nuts know the name skyline, but how many would be potential buyers? For Nissan's sake it may do well, maybe convince other manufacturers to bring their other market cars into the US.

Probably a good ballpark guess, I think.
