Wow, it actually resebles a skyline with the camo on, unlike the prototypes we've seen. I hope that when it is uncovered, it looks like a skyline, not a G35/350Z.

I can't wait to see the performance data on those machines. Looks don't mean a thing unless you have something to back it up and I am hoping the new Skyline has a lot of somethings.

God, Japanese cars are so overpriced (well, the Japanese Muscle cars like the Evo, Supra, Impreza WRX STI, NSX, Skyline GT-R etc.) $70,000 for a Skyline? You must be joking! I don't think any Japanese Muscle car is worth more than $40,000, NSX and Skyline GT-R should be about $40k, the new Supra and its competitors should be about $30k and the STI/Evo and others should be well below $30k, closer to $25k for the top end models. That's my 2 cents but I must be right, I wonder why all the older Japanese Muscle cars died out, because no one was buying them, NSX and Supra anyone?

People that like that kinda of muscle car will buy one, you might like something else, and someone might like these


Its all about opinion, I love european cars over anything, more then any american or japanese car

I'd take a good 3-series any day over any of those.

The STi is 33000, and the EVO IX is 29149. I think both of those are bargains.
As for the NSX, Supra and Skyline, they can be considered exotics or supercars. It is just most people would rather spend 70,000 on a Ferrari or a Porsche, rather than a Honda or a Toyota. I have a feeling that you are thinking that they must be cheap if they're from Asia. These are amazing cars and are priced accordingly.

I personally think that EVO > than all. The price/performance ratio is unheard of, and the available parts is great. For the base of 29k + about 5-7k in parts.... it will be untouched by any musclecar, and will even toy with ferrari's and lambos...

Find any other brand new car in the world that can compete with an EVO in speed and handling for $30,000. The car is a fantastic bargain and the only other brand new car in the world that can compete with it at that price and this is only in straight line speed is the 350Z.

For the price, the EVO is probably the best deal on the plaent. I remember the 400hp European version kept up no problem with a Murcielago on Top Gear.

Any musclecar? Mehh..cornering wise, I don't think anything American car has a chance in hell of matching it, considering none of them have active AWD. Maybe the Z06 could? Straight line wise...well put those 5-7k into a turbo for a ginormous V8 and you pretty much have a monster.

I can't find the freaking time on Google but I think the world record EVO quarter mile time is 9.x I'm curious.

Don't get me wrong, I love the Japanese muscle cars, almost every one of them is fantastic IMO but I still think they are way too expensive, especially $70,000 for the GT-R.
