There is almost no change in the rear design in all the four cars. I like the R34 the best. The new GTR ain't that good looking somehow. The dual-double exhaust is awesome though!!

Boy, it has grown! Call me old-fashioned but I like the neatly proportioned, simple low profile look of the R34 best.

R34 looks the best for me. Sleek functional lines.

quite right gto..the r34 is still one of the best..it is wat got me hooked to the skyline..but the 35 just doesnt look as a skyline should...but i hear it packs a serious punch..and it goes around the nurburgrig faster than the 911 turbo..

The R34 always comes to mind when you say "Skyline" and will always be a favourite.

But this new GTR has taken the Skyline name to a whole diffferent level. The car is menacing. The new GTR makes its way into my list of the most desirable cars. The Japanese have done it again.

32 and 34 are the best, followed by the new one. 33 is a bit, erm, dunno...

OT: Ananth, that's the US BMI graph, isn't it? It's only in the First World that rich people are thinner than poor people.

Yes it is. The obesity is mind-boggling. Detroit is the fattest city in the country (possibly the world).

But doesn't the new GTR pack more VFM ?
Please dont tell me the old GTR could be modded endlessly for more power easily. I am only talking about stock power.
Personally even I like the killer aggressive stance from all views of the R34 in its segment.

i like the r33 as far as looks are concerned..it looked more proportionate compared to the r32 or the r34.
but i feel that Nissan has lost the game..with the new GTR they have used carbon fibre,fancy gearbox etc,and have taken it into the supercar league.what made the GTR name so sacred was that it looked like a normal family saloon and still could kick arse...now thats a "Q" car..The new GTR is...well...it looks like it can kick arse while the older one didnt look the part.
All the above is my personal opinion .
