I think I saw a new Nissan GT-R on the 405 on Thursday night coming back from LAX. I wasn't sure since I've not seen pictures of it until now. I was driving about 90MPH and it blew right by me. I guessed that it was a GT-R from the rear lights; they look very R34 Skyline-like. I tried chasing it down for a better look. Good think there was road construction ahead since the GT-R has about a 200 HP advantage over my 350Z. The engine is only 300cc bigger but the two turbos adds a lot of power: 480 HP vs. 286 HP for my Z.

Nothing like forced induction... Rumor has it the 480hp is underrated too, its more like 500...

In the 90s the japanese supercars (except the NSX) all made use of turbos - Nissan 300zx, Toyota Supra, Mazda Rx7! :)
