2009 Nissan GT-R - A Night with the Kids

Sport Compact Car

There's just no stopping the new 2009 Nissan GT-R. Bearing the chassis code CBA-R35 (R35 for short), the new GT-R has surpassed even the mighty R34 in terms of media hype. As the first GT-R to ever be sold on US shores, the R35 has managed to clinch the cover of almost every car magazine that isn't solely devoted to pushrods and carbureted 'Stangs. Every single auto show for the past two years has also been the scene of chaos, with journalists trampling each other left and right to snap a shot or grab a brochure.

After Nissan declared that the Porsche 911 Turbo was the benchmark 'rival' for the R35, publications rushed to set up comparisons, flowcharts or tests pitching the two force-fed machines against each other. If you ask us, Nissan probably helped sell a few 911s from the extra coverage. We don't remember reading so much about the 911 Turbo's track prowess until the R35 puffed out its chest.
