ABSTRACT
Carlos Ghosn, chief of automobile company Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. confirms that Skyline GT-R will debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2007. Video game fans on these shores who have long enjoyed the high-speed thrills of the GT-R will have a chance to drive it. Ghosn says the car will be sold here. And, if one hasn't noticed, Nissan has been working on a lot of other products lately and doing a pretty good job with them, too. So there weren't spare engineers to toil away on a fairly low-volume supercar. That's still kind of vague, but it sounds like the GT-R will not be another half-million-dollar Enzo/SLR/Carrera GT supercar, at least not in the finance department. The exterior will probably not look like the concept car shown at Tokyo two years ago, either, though the decision on which of many design proposals submitted has not been made.
