|Are you saying we need professional help because of our curiosity?|
i dont get why you all think it cant be r35?
it very well could be.
it probably wont be z or v. but it could still be r.
the rumors about c are just that- rumors.
i dont believe those rumors for a number of reasons, but mainly:
1. the C designation has been in use for some time with the Laurel. Although this vehicle has shared skyline parts over time, this car is not a skyline, much less GT-R.
2. There was never a C/Laurel coupe. This car was not about performance in that sense.
3. The last Laurel was the C35. Why would they make a C36 before they made an R35? that would make no sense. its like saying the next GT-R is a successor to the Laurel which is completely illogical.
if I had to bet, I'd bet on R35.
|No way it's going to have an R designation, I mean, Nissan has never ever mentioned it to be nothing more than just "Nissan GT-R".|
|Of course it might have one, but we don't know that,|
|and it certainly can't be R35 since we've jumped past it, the next one would be R36 if anything.|
|But trust me that it's just going to be Nissan GT-R.|
|Nissan has made the strategy now to label their cars like FX, Z, and GT-R series. They don't explicitly say FX35, FX45, etc although we know there are two different models based on several factors.|
|Maybe there is a possibility of this,|
|because there have been different versions of basically the same GT-R, so who knows, but if anything, they will leave the R designation out and just use V Spec, V Spec II--like this: 2009 Nissan GT-R V-Spec II. That's what I believe will occur, not 2009 Nissan GT-R R-3x.|
|I'm just referring to the R designation, I wasn't talking about the chassis code|
Don't get me wrong, I know the influence the chassis code has. Of course they (mags) will refer to it, but in the general I'm saying in the past, the R designation was more important. But now that its gone, we basically have only GT-R--and the chassis code. So in a way, your right, in saying that now in the future we will rely more on defining it with the chassis code, as really that is all we have to distinguish it from prior cars. Nissan BNC36 GTR, nice ring to it, but who decided that this code was final?
The SCC and Edmunds post stuff from random speculative Japanese Mags, which aren't the most reliable. I'm not sure if this is the final chassis code.
