I was thinking about the fact that the new GT-R isn't based on any of the old Skylines as far as series. I know they are borrowing some design ideas (stretching it here), but I had always thought from all the reading I've done that this is going to be a new series.that number designates a series. R35 already exists. It is called the G35/Skyline.
The GT-R is breaking ties to the Skyline from now on, so they may come up with a new numbering scheme.
If your referring to chassis codes only, then yes. But otherwise it's just going to be GT-R. I knew this was going to happen sooner or later(it would depart from Skyline AND R-designation), I don't think anyone will really care about the chassis code, except us I'm afraid. I personally always have been fond of a new R-3x, but alas, it's not going to happen. Makes us work harder (to get known) with current competition from already established skyline and gtr sites which have been around for years. I wish that they would come to their senses and call it Nissan R36 GTR, but no, they have too big of an ego for that.she's probably gonna be BNC36 GTR.
LOL I have no idea what you mean by that, but no, everyone is curious still as some people don't know the new GT-R has been dropped of its R and Skyline traits!Are you saying we need professional help because of our curiosity?
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 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.
first off, every car has a chassis code. nissan hasn't referred to the 2007 g35 as the v36 but we all know that's its chassis designation. the gt-r will have a chassis designation for sure. the fact that they havent said that its r35 doesnt mean that it wont be, because they havent said anything else (c36) either.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".
all nissan cars have chassis codes. the sentras were the b13,14,etc. the maximas are a3# series i believe, the z are the z3#, the skylines are now the v3#...Of course it might have one, but we don't know that,
nissan didnt jump past anything. the last gt-r was the r34 which ended production in 2002. there hasnt been a gt-r since. the skyline, starting in 02 has been seperated from the gt-r. the skyline following the r34 became the v35. if anything they just took a break with the gt-r. in which case, look at the 350z. they took a break between the z32 and z33 but that didnt stop them from calling it the z33.and it certainly can't be R35 since we've jumped past it, the next one would be R36 if anything.
i agree. they dont call the 350z the Z33 anywhere. its either Fairlady Z or 350Z, depending on your location/market.But trust me that it's just going to be Nissan GT-R.
fx35 is not an internal chassis code/designation. it's a product name. the two are completely seperate. they call the USDM Nissan Skyline CPV35 the Infiniti G35 Coupe, not the V35. Yet, if you look in the engine bay you will see that it's model code is V35.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.
it's definite that the new gt-r will have a designation..Maybe there is a possibility of this,
i think you're confusing product names for model/chassis codes. the product name has already been given to us: the nissan gt-r. the chassis code has not, and i'd argue that there's no reason why it couldn't be v35.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.
oh so you're questioning whether or not they'll use the chassis code in the product name?I'm just referring to the R designation, I wasn't talking about the chassis code
whatever it is called, it's code will become the new iconic number, every bit as awesome as "R34."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.
