wow, a supra, and a new one!!! this should be one helluva car, but styling could have been better. I think tuned and modded supra's rock, better than any other car in its class

The G35 is the same car as a V35 Skyline. but not for long ..

the car Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn has promised in time for the 2007 Tokyo motor show—the Skyline GT-R—appears to be running through its paces in the form of a super-powered, special-bodied Infiniti G35 Coupe .The all-wheel-drive Skyline will be powered by a 450-hp, twin-turbocharged V6 engine, with suspension tuned by Lotus engineers.
so i guess that the rumours that there will be no RB engines and Z series coming from the nissan was false ...

Yup they did.Skyline 350GT = G35.But surprisingly they do not have the Nissan enblem on the front grille.It reads Impul.The car is available in tiptronic as well as manual tranny.Its scary fast.I absolutely love it.
Here are a few pics :

right on Ice ..that was the concept they brought out 2 years back ..i dont think the car was ever tested or further developed ...

coming back to the topic ..
the Volta, was unveiled by Toyota in the Geneva Auto show aswell...
was said a slight sober looking version of the concept could well replace the Supra in 2007..



the concept car features a carbon-fiber body and chassis, making it extremely light--under 2900 pounds. The sports car also uses a 6-cylinder version of Toyotas Hybrid Synergy Drive that makes more than 400 hp...
with the hybrid drivetrain, the Volta should have fuel economy numbers to rival an average 4-cylinder sedan and get about 400 miles on a tank of fuel--a rarity in this class....
