Well, at least none of you insisted that the Skylines had the 'R' designation because of the RB, and now have the 'V' because of the VQ engine. Always got on my nerves when people did that.

the eternal trumping of rumor against rumor is a pathetic roundabout merry-go-round of going-nowhere vanity. nobody knows. we can gather a lot from parallel developments across other manufacturer's developments for consumer-division sports car platforms. and we know from seeing other cars what is possible. and what may be in store.

the GTR is not any longer the R-series cars, even if the R is retained. the GTR is going beyond what it has ever been. that is the only known fact. how this manifests is entirely enigmatic. this is a case where the hidden features to appear on the car are under our noses and in plain sight, and the the seemingly obvious things to appear are hidden under layers of obscurity and are, perhaps, patently false.

it would follow to reason that to follow reason is dangerous. the GTR is already not following the triangularity of typical coupe shapes; alas, it retains the angry boxiness of it's predecessors. it is not an aero queen or posh machine of the euro-elitist aficionados. it deliberately flouts this pigeonholeable form and function. it is not the jelly-bean porsche. it is not the expected ferrari shape. it is not the sedan-based rice rocket. it is it's own thing. it is the GTR.

the mystique is already upon us in our unknowing and confusion. what is expected is kept hidden as well. this only makes a case against finding what is expected to be actually appearing. the apprehension among tuners at the possibility of no turbos, of only one turbo, of a V8, is felt and heard by Nissan. the world responded to Infiniti GTR with nearly 100% thumbs down. so it is Nissan GTR. nobody wants a supercharger but a scant minority, nobody wants an N/A GTR but a scant minority, nobody wants a V8 but a scant minority.

the reality of the GTR will undoubtedly far exceed what we have expected or even thought about creating for a sports car. while one hand is doing the three card monte', Nissan's other hand is creating entirely new things that are not understood.

quality over quantity

No. According to Wikipedia the R390's ran in the late 90's with moderate success, the program was shelved when the FIA changed rules. Currently Nissan is running a "GT-R" in FIA sanctioned Le Mans racing (doesn't qualify for GT in ALMS or at Le Mans).
