    Default Z or GTR?? in Wheels Mag.

    Have a look at page 10 of the new Wheels magazine and tell me that GTR concept looks more like a 240z than the 350z does.

    You know i'm right. the GTR has the side window profile more like the 240.

    Mmmmm............ there are so many damn concept pictures of that car, I'm not going to say anything.

    I'll wait until I see one And then I'll probably just frown and think about R32s.............

    Like the article says - the GT-R will be shown at the 2003 Tokyo Motor Show in October this year. 8(?) months before release.

    There are 2 powerplants on offer, the NA V8 (displacement ~5L) & the TT VQ35.

    One of the reasons that the US is getting the atmo V8 is due to the Ca smog laws (specifically relating to the light-up time of a cat convertor in a turbo car).

    If you recall, Subaru addressed this problem by putting pre-cats into the WRX, but it still only just passes....
    (the pre-cats also have a tendancy to melt, which can very quickly destroy the turbine).

    There is another quote in the article relating to the selection of the V8 for the US market, but I don't want to miss-quote it so it'll have to wait until I get home tonight.
