New G35 Sedan (2007) - strengthens "R"ivalry

Not sure how many of you "R" drivers frequent the Car Lounge but I posted a thread on the new G35 over there. This G looks much better IMO and I'm thinking ups the ante on the "R".<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=56963" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=56963</A> <p>here is a taste<p><IMG SRC="http://www.nissannews.com/multimedia/infiniti2007/800px/07_sedan_08.jpg" BORDER="0">

Has the face of the new M with the rear of the G35 coupe. Kind of a Baby M...nice combo. I hope it comes with a stick. Too bad they probably won't offer a G45 with AWD and a 6MT. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> Now that would be neat.<p>-Eric

That's beautiful, is it longer? Looks like it is...<p>Looks fresh, without losing its roots. Can't wait to hear specs.

Re: New G35 Sedan (needsdecaf)

LOL I actually think we agree on most car stuff, with the only real exception being Volvo's direct line of competitors (a road we won't go down in this thread). I trust Kelly's opinion on a lot of car stuff! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p>-Eric

Looks a lot better than the current G sedan's rear end. I would say it could pose a threat to the R, if it's lifespan made it till then.

Quite attractive looking exterior - alas unless they did major upgrades in the interior from the 2005 models I checked out, the interior just plain sucks - very cheap looking<p>Now if they fix the interior as well, then it would be a very formidable vehicle

That's not a rival. That thing will slaughter the 'R' on streets or track. The G35's I was racing at the track a few weeks ago were about 530hp with some turbe boost modifications. I don't know about the interior, but the G35's got the 'R's with their pants down.<p><A HREF="http://img86.imageshack.us/img86/668/dscn19335bz.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://img86.imageshack.us/img...z.jpg</A>

The biggest complaint on the G35's was the rear bumper, trunck, and tail lights differed from the saden vrs the coupe. Looks like the car was made a little longer to accomidate the new look keeping the 2 looking the same.

Yes but you know those cars are highly modified, a lot of research and development in those cars that were at the track.

Re: (cloaked)

i don't think a stock G35 will slaughter an R. I personall think the G35 *sedan* is fugly. The coupe, however, looks HOT.<p>a nicely fixed up G35 coupe - forced induction - would be a nice ride.<p>if you slap on a turbo - then that's a different story.

KillerB, you're comparing apples to oranges. Stock G35's are not turbocharged, so once you slap on a turbo, you may as well say I'm going to change the R's turbo and make 100+ more HP. <br>
