Default Supra vs. Skyline

i do not like how toyota is making this crappy supra, i mean look at the 08 skyline GT-R, its inline 6 twin turbo with 480hp, and the supra has a v8 with 450, i think toyota needs to stick to the inline 6 and TT it and make it a competitor of the new American skyline,cuz the skyline is looking sweet, but for a pricy penny of 70,000+. i just want them to make something better lol

I have to agree with you on that one. In my opinion 4 and 6 cylinder cars are must quicker and snappier then 8 or definatly 10. Such as the Viper. Its a good car, but in a race against a Turbo 6 cylinder it doesnt stand a chance.

no offense but i would never dream of owning a 70k+ car in this lifetime. the new skyline might be coming to america but the only ppl that will be able to afford them are the same as those that buy the vipers, and which do you think they will get? a 6cylinder tt or a v10/v12 w/e they have.

If you ask me... Cars are much better with lower number of cylinders... v10's and v12s may have quite a bit of power, but they are built to have that many cylinders push the shaft. V6's Are built to have 6 push. Once you get a Twin Turbo in there they are pushing must faster then a v10 or v12. I think putting a v10 or v12 in anything besides a huge truck or machinary is rather stupid.

boost is a replacement for displacement and besides, im sure a TT 6cyl is gonna get a bit better gas milage them a v8,v10 or v12... but then again, if they can afford the car they can afford the gas? and also.. if you gonna spend that much for a car.. why not but something like a mkIII or mkIV and do whatever you want with the left over money? do whatever you want to the engine/tranny/drivetrain etc.. and make it look f'ing awesome.. makes sense to me? and besides, it looks kind of fugly?

oh dont misunderstand me. im only saying the only ppl able to afford the car or the 45+ guys that just cruise in the car and dont even own a wrench. if i had that much money id buy a stock mkiv and use the left over money and build a mean street car.

if i had a choice between the new skyline and the supra, i would go for the skyline cause not only is it powerful and sweet lookin, but im a skyline fan myself and i would spend all day and night studying it and learning every aspec about it. if i was rich i wouldnt just own a wrench i would have a shop in my living room..

I love Supras to death always have and always will. but i am a little disappointed that they are switching to the v8. i am glad that the Skyline is going stick to its roots. i hope toyota will go back after they see how much better the skyline is gonna be.
