I remember that '1500' number for some reason. It was recent. However, I can't imagine them only making that few with all the hoopla and mystery surrounding the car. With all the money they've spent on it, they have to sell more than that to even begin to make some kind of profit. I'm not going to guess how many...
I remember the 1500 number as well, but it was only the number of cars allocated to the US. Who knows how many other countries would get.

As a point of reference, GM is only making a total of ~7k C6 Z06s and sells them in Europe as well.

no, they actually carried an msrp of less than $50k at the time (see my post above)
Regular GT-R's sold for about $44k (Non V-Spec) but the NUR's definetly didn't sell in JP for anything less than 90k, at least most of them didn't. Considering that the 2002 NUR's fetched 65k+ used with low miles (~1500) in 2004-2005 gives you an idea of what it must have sold for when they were at the dealers. If you don't think so, go to zele-international.com. They used to be Prospec-MS, but Shin changed it and got affiliated with Nismo. I used to see the stock lists all the time, and the used NUR's he had posted had anywhere from 1500 to 11,000 miles and fetched on average 60k U.S. dollars after the price conversion.

Chuck_H, your right with what you said. From 1999-2001, they sold 9,000. So 3,000 for 2002 seems right. I was referring to GT-R's, thanks for the correction.

i can't argue about the street value of the car as I was not there, but nissan japan's docs seem to suggest the msrp was a lot lower than 90k. see this for example

final total production of:
R32GTR: a bit over 42,000
R33GTR: a bit over 15,000 units
R34GTR: a bit over 12,000 units

these are total # R-series GTRs in existence, making the R34GTR the rarest of the 3.

Corvette Z-06 numbers range from 3000 - 5000+ units/annually. worldwide.

quality over quantity

Considering there's alot more skylines(non gtr), must make a total of over 100k skylines in total including the GT-R's. Most likely there are more non GT-R than GT-R's.

Following your logic there should be well over 140k skylines in total, which I don't think will be the case for the GTR. I think the number of units will depend heavily on the price (duh). If we see around a $70k price tag then I'd expect something around 1200 cars the first year to reach the US.
