that's an old R34 skyline. The g35 is a 350z with an altima chasis instead of the race geared suspension/chasis that the 350z has. There is no skyline other than the skyline simple as that. They are making them legal in the states on a semi basis as of now, meaning if you have the $ call up Nissan they'll build you a left hand drive one.

edit: if that link is correct that's the 1st i've heard of the 07' g35 being a R35 skyline. That's 100% different than what Nissan has said for the past 6 years ever since Fast and Furious came out and the first real screen time for a skyline appeared.

if you really think an eclipse is better than a skyline never again think of buying a performance car;). hell the only car you put a picture of that might be worth a look is that 350z, a skyline is a beast. The R34 Jspec II's are insane.

The R35 is the new skyline. They are actually going to release the US version in left hand drive and with the same motor/drivetrain as the J-Spec. So, this time we get all the goodies they do instead of it being de-tuned like most imports. This is a quote from motor trend.

"Nissan has confirmed that North America will get the same powertrain as the rest of the world, rumored to be a twin-turbo, 450-horse, 3.7-liter V-6"


Here is the link.

The g35 is the skyline in Japan, but its a lil different over there. The 350z is the fairlady in japan. That pic isthe R34 skyline...which you can get if you have the money. figure about 80,000 for an R34. Motorex is a company to look at.

i read in the magizine that the g35 is the same as the R35.. and yes the g35 is the american skyline, cause they do make them that style over there.. i could tell from the pic how the back windows and the exhaust is exit on the left that its a skyline

In the US, Infinity is Nissan's 'Premium' brand, like Acura is to Honda, Lexus to Toyota and so forth. The four-door G35 sedan (a standard 2003 Skyline, if you will) is already shaking up the medium car market and the Sports Coupe promises even more.

Taken directly from the article in question:
Title:
Nissan's new 'Skyline'

Second paragraph:
Call it a selfish pursuit if you like, but the car is just launching in the States and, though no green light has been given for the car's release in Australia, the new R35 Nissan Skyline (aka Infinity G35) has to be seen to be believed.

Thirteenth paragraph:
In the US, Infinity is Nissan's 'Premium' brand, like Acura is to Honda, Lexus to Toyota and so forth. The four-door G35 sedan (a standard 2003 Skyline, if you will) is already shaking up the medium car market and the Sports Coupe promises even more.

Last paragraph:
While Nissan head honcho Carlos Ghosn has mentioned he wanted the new Skyline (G35) range to be available the world over, it is yet to happen. We'll pray and wait...

this is a common exterior modification for honduh's. you can immediately tell though if it is indeed a honda cuz it looks funny hahaha. pretty much all of them have aftermarket conversion kits available. pretty f*ckin stupid if you ask me, especially cuz it's a nissan (ftw)...

the 1 skyline i knew of in Tx guy paid 55grand us in japan for it, then 25k to get it here. you don't buy a skyline as a daily driver as it's right hand drive and no matter the emissions it'll never pass b/c of it's right hand drive.

It IS legal. Different states have different rules and regulations. Ga is pretty slack, and therefore, does not have emisions laws. Meaning the car does not have to be inspected, nor pass any type of testing.

Just do a rhd swap. I have seen plenty at shows in ATL... lots of rhd 92-95 civic hatches.


Personally, I'd take a mitsubishi FTO before a skyline.

Also a big fan of s13 silvias.

Wouldn't own one, and drive it daily, but it would be fun to play around with on a curvy wide mildly wet road with bald rear tires...

the altima is front wheel drive fyi making it impossible to have the same chassis as 350z

no there is only 1 place in the US from last time i herd that can u get one... and that is located in San Fransico. they cost around 20-30Grand to ship over and legalize them... and then on top of that a 20K car in japan u get it for 30-50K + the 20-30K to get it shipped over.... this stuff i herd awhile back not sure if there are others.

and people those cars cant pass Emissions for hell. like someone else said u dont buy it for daily driver, you buy it cause ur rich *****.... i have been looking around for a import for a nice fixer and one **** *** car is the 240sx... that thing is HAWT and not expensive.

The G35 doesnt share commonalities with the Altima or Maxima in any way. Its on its own platform/chassis.

As posted above the G35 IS the US version of the Skyline. Hence all my parts coming from Japan made by Nissan and fully interact with my car.

The Skyline GTR is a hell of a car, not sure how u can confuse one with a prelude. NO they r not illegal just because they're right hand drive and if u want one u need to go through MOTOREX based out in California. http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Features/articleId=105699

In Japan the G35 Coupe is badged as the Skyline, the person probably just did a re-badge, I hear about it all the time.

For the record:

G35 Coupe is the Skyline in Japan in name only, it can't be compared with the older GT/GT-R versions.

The G35 coupe and 350z share the same platform/chassis/engine except the G35 is a few inches longer and weighs ~200lbs more. It is also a 2+2 seater instead of just a 2.

The new, true Skyline will be released world wide(read US and Japan) in late '07/'08 and though specs are not finalized it is said to have at least 450hp and to cost close to $70,000 USD.

And to the OP, yes that is the Skyline GT-R from Two Fast, Two Furious. :rolleyes:
