click above for a high-res gallery of the Nissan GT-R.

Contrary to a few reports that began surfacing around the web this morning, Nissan will not be showing off a hopped-up version of the GT-R at the Geneva Motor Show next week. With all the spy shots, general speculation and history of the GT-R badge, it's just a matter of time before Nissan evolves it's super GT car into an even more competent performer, but its not bound anytime soon.

While Nissan has already confirmed that a V-Spec GT-R is coming, there are no official details about what Godzilla will be packing when it's released. Nissan officials have said that the V-Spec is definitely going to be launched in Japan, but exports outside of Nissan's home market are still undecided.

      Chris calls the GT-R a Mini Veyron!

      And the man is not easy to please.

      Check out the comparo video with the above Porsche's & many others!

      Im not an expert on porches but I was under the impression that the GT3 RS and the GT2 were quite a bit faster then the base gt3

      Dealers in our area are getting $25,000+ over sticker, and there doesn't seem to be any problem with buyers inquiring from all over the place. For the dealers who will sell the GT-R, it's requiring over $25,000 investment in new Tech Equipment, plus the dealers have to send a few Techs to Japan for training - at the dealers expense, so the MAP is well justified. I think the GT-R is priced too low, and needs to be closer to $90K. One guy told me at $100K it's in the Porsche 911 Turbo range, and he eluded to the fact, well I can just buy a Porsche then... well okay, you can buy a 911 Turbo any day of the week, but NOT a GT-R.

      It would make no sense for Nissan to unveil a V-Spec variant at Geneva, given that the standard GT-R hasn't even hit showrooms outside of Japan. It would be the automotive equivalent of premature ejaculation.

        I imagine a GT2 vs. GT-R comparison would be much the same thing, perhaps more pronounced: Porsche more involving drive, GT-R more driver-friendly. Can't imagine that taking the AWD stability from the Turbo model would all of a sudden make the GT2 a better handler than the GT-R.

        Different cars for different people. Porsche Turbo/GT2/GT3 shoppers most likely won't be Nissan GT-R shoppers. Nissan's point of producing a $70K sports car sort of redefined the supercar category. You're really buying the prestige/luxury that comes with a Porsche/Lambo/Ferrari because for outright all-round performance, the GT-R is the best "supercar"

        Anyone see the review of the 2008 Porsche GT2? I wonder how long before we start seeing road test and comparisons of the GT2 vs. Godzilla (we've seen the Turbo and the GT3 already, so it's only a matter of time).

        There was a great comparison in Road and Track this month and it showed the comparison between the 911 turbo and the GT-R along side a corvette. The GT-R reigned supreme but there is a styling in the 911 that cannot be escaped. i agree the GT2 comparison would be nice but as the 911 Turbo was not in the price range of the other two cars here, the GT2 will just be many times the price. I want to see more about comparable models like the isF
