"...the new "global" version of the longstanding classic will be marketed throughout Europe and the U.S. as well as Japan to make it profitable, and not only in Great Britain and Australia where its market has been limited to date as a right-hand drive car."

Sounds like they're planning on finally selling it here. I just hope it's a little less, umm... avant garde, than the concept shown in the picture.

Right now my buddy is trying to get his hands on a skyline, a real one. He's doing it for value but if that skyline comes to the states, that'll sure piss him off hehe. He won't be able to drive it if he gets the one he's looking at, it was all pieces together from parts and has no VIN.

Skylines are badass, but that car is definetly ugly. Who else wants to look like a 350z?

That does look like a 350Z. But what's wrong with a 350Z?

I like the 350Z, I think it is interesting that the Skyline is coming to the U.S. I wonder how much they will run price wise... 40K, 50K??

350z is how much 30k? 40k?

Looks just like an audi or an infinity or whatever the other one is, and is slower than a stock EVO VIII or a STI, which is the same price or 10k cheaper.

Thats whats wrong with it.
