I kindly invite you to read this article that predicts the failure of the GT-R, in great fashion. It was written by Jack Baruth, an amature racer and a retired Pro BMX rider, who has some very interesting views on the GT-R’s fan base. I believe that his view on the new skyline is spot on and that Nissan will eventually realize that the car is not going to make the impact they wanted.
Here are a few excerpts.
“Do you see the problem with the idea of marketing a $70,000 car to people who still live with their parents and who spend all night on XBOX Live?”
“I can’t help but think that Nissan had a better option than bringing us a 3800-pound Angry Catfish with a Porsche-sized Monroney slapped on the window;”
