I have been a MotorTrend subscriber for many years, Brikag . . . unfortunately, they have "struck out" more than once.

I'm very anxious to see how this one holds up.

I can list about 50 Japanese cars that look better than that thing. But, thats just my opinion of course. I mean, I dont think its ugly, but Nissan definitely went with the whole "form follows function" when they designed the current GT-R.

Curious though, what "Audi" design cues do you see in it? I see none whatsoever.
