Been hearing that rumor for about five years. Usually preceded or followed by the "SR20DET is coming" rumor.

the Skyline GTR CANNOT come over. The only way is through those conversion guys.

Nissan can't bring it over because it is designed for right-hand drive and I read that the steering column would cause major engineering issues with the car if it were to be put on the left side for the American market. They would basically have to redesign the entire engine bay layout. I think it also has something to do with the turbos...

I hope that I'm sadly mistaken but did anyone else read this?

True. But according to the last rumors I've heard, note the word rumor, the next GT-R (the GT-R will no longer be associated Skyline name, I believe) will have a completely different engine. The RB26DETT is gone, probably replaced by the VQ35DETT or a V8 that will pump out around 400hp. This could be the new GT-R that's coming to America. The Skyline thats coming next spring was previously called the XVL concept, which will have at least 260hp with the VQ35DE engine. It will be an entry level performance luxury sedan that will compete with the 3-series and in my opinion, blow the doors off the IS300.
