First Spy Shot of the GT-R, or rather, GT-R components. This shows an Infiniti G35 Coupe, under which lies the mechanicals of the GT-R's suspension, which is being tuned by Lotus at their development Center in England

It was being benchmarked against the Current GT-R

2007 Infiniti GT-R Midsize Coupe/Hatchback

What Edmunds.com Says: It may end up wearing an Infiniti badge, but this next generation Skyline should have all the attitude of its Nissan cousins.

What We Know: After years of rumors and intense lobbying by Nissan enthusiasts in the U.S., Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn announced that his company plans to release a fully redesigned version of the legendary Skyline GT-R by 2007. The new version will take its cues from the GT-R concept car that has made the rounds at various auto shows over the past several years, and unlike its predecessor the GT-R will make its way to the U.S. With the 350Z already occupying a steady spot in Nissan's lineup, look for the GT-R to come Stateside wearing an Infiniti badge. A prototype caught testing on Germany's grueling Nurburgring test track made the rounds wearing the shell of a current G35, but obvious signs of serious modifications indicate it was no ordinary Infiniti. The car is expected to debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in the fall of 2007 and go on sale later that year.

The 2008 Nissan Skyline may be a couple years away, but we've got the latest spy pictures of a new prototype caught testing on the Nurburgring. Expected to come to the U.S. wearing the Infiniti GT-R badge, this super coupe from Nissan is the car that Japanese rivals like the Subaru WRX and Mitsubishi Evolution aspire to.

We've seen this prototype before, but closer examination reveals some variations that have been added since its last sighting. The rear fascia wears an extended bumper section that hints at the GT-R's longer overall length compared to the current Japanese market Nissan Skyline, otherwise known as the Infiniti G35 in the U.S. The view from behind also reveals pronounced front-quarter panels that extend beyond the G35's stock bodywork suggesting a considerably wider track up front. Same goes for the rear quarters, as the view from the front shows some wide wheelwells destined to house some serious rubber.

Regardless of whether it comes over wearing the Nissan Skyline GT-R badge or the Infiniti GT-R nameplate, expect the usual combination of serious horsepower, all-wheel drive and Nissan's latest technological hardware. Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn suggested in a speech to expect around 400 hp from what will probably be a twin-turbo version of Nissan's VQ V6. Internet chatter has also brought up the possibility of a seven-speed sequential gearbox, but even if that doesn't come to fruition a standard six-speed manual should be part of the package.

Ghosn has also gone on record with the promise of a production version for the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, but a recent report suggests that yet another concept version may be shown at this year's Tokyo show. Rest assured that regardless of when the Nissan's replacement for the Skyline hits the streets it will be one of the fastest supercars Japan has ever produced.

one problem ..
the V35 is 7 or 8 years old i 2008 .. in otherwords .. its not going to be based on teh V35..
somthing that people at nissan did say in 2002
there vill not be any V35 GTR .. but there vill be a new GTR after V35
the year might be right .. but that car looks to mutch like a riced up G35 to be beliveble..

(and yes .. there is a lot og V35s in europe...there is a modifide black one in sweden that im shure has the same bumper)

the VQ engine is was new for the G/Z/FX in 2003 so it would only be 5 years old which is not exactly old as far as engine designs go, especially for an engine as highly regarded. a little upgrading should keep it up to date and this may use the 4.0 L version.

If I recall correctly, Gohsn has said that the GT-R is not supposed to be a hot version of an existing model (as with past ones), but rather it's own thing this time around. It's intended to share components with other models sure, but it's supposed to have unique styling and much model specific engineering. The car in the pics (as well as previous ones we've seen) are just mules based on the current G35 coupe/350z. The truth is that other than the obvious body shell on the mule, we don't really know what's underneath.

If you are talking about the G35, then you are mistaken just a bit. The G35 will indeed be old by the time the GTR will come out. However, Nissan has already done the job of updating the platform both mechanically and structurally with the new M45. The FM platform is going to be around for a while, because Nissan is very committed to it in the long term. As for this, this is just a rough mule using a G35 coupe body. The real thing will look nothing like this.

The Skyline/G35 and the new GTR are 2 different cars. They won't share any sheet metal, its not a souped up Skyline anymore. They are testing the new GTR under a Skyline/G35 shell... this article tells you that the weird rear bumper indicates the GTR's might be longer length than the Skyline/G35. A new Skyline/G35 should debut either in the 2007-2008MY that will not be related to the new GTR besides sharing platforms.

Nissan wants the GTR to be Porshe competition.

Exactly.

Two different names, but they share a platform and some of their mechanical parts.
