Question 2004 Nissan Skyline ?

I saw a Nissan Skyline in Seattle, WA yesterday but I was confused.
It looked more like a cross between a 350ZX and an Infinity G??

Is this the new Skyline body ?

The car was blue and had the Toyo log on it on gray.

Here's some pics on the car I saw.

Here's the Nissian Skyline website.

the infinity g35 is the japan skyline...
so probably someone just put nissan grille and stuff to his g35...
and the 350 and the g35 share the same platform....

Wow your right, I wonder why Nissan would make it so similar in looks to the 350Z?

No, they showed us what would be the Americanized Skyline, and to me it sucks ass. It will basically be a 350z... eff that.

yes, someone's 350z that they rebadged and put on the japanese Nissan website. I read an article (sadly, don't remember where) that Nissan could sell Skyline parts over here, but they don't feel that it would fit the Infinity G35's buyers, or the infinity brand. And why would they show us the Americanized Skyline when its on the Japanese website, all in japanese? Easy. Because the G35 is the same platform as the Skyline, same as the 350z.

To summarize: its not some ricer rebadging his car. Its the actual Nissan website and actual Nissan promo pictures.

I like it, I was shocked when I found out the G35 was the new skyline and was a little pissed about the RB engines dumise. But I like the G35 better than the 350z and motor trend actually got a better slalom speed thatn the 350 with the G35. I say slap greddy's twin turbo kit on it keep the outside stock and have a luxurious sleeper, that would be a sweet ride.

Before everyone you start calling a skyline a 350 know what you are talking about. This IS a skyline. Notice the right hand drive. It is new. But the 350 is dominating the tuner scene in Japan right now. They sorta brought the skyline off its throne. I do not know the difference between the two of them, the skyline and 350 that is. I beleive that Nissan is using the 350 for their GT500 series in place of the skyline.

thew skyline was an awd race car and the z series was a rwd street car. i allways liked the skyline until i just looked at those pics. it's allways been it's own car and now it looks just like the g35 and 350z. its a shame.

It was weird looking at the rear of this skyline because it looked so much like an Infinity but it had the round Nissan badge on the middle of the trunk lid with a SKYLINE badge under it.
The car was blue and had vinyl stickers on it and had a large gray TOYO logo on both sides.
