JAPAN: Major changes due for Nissan Skyline
In their place are curvy contemporary lines, Audi A4-style wrap-around rear lights and a state-of-the-art V6.
However, the Japanese media are picking that a two-door coupe planned for next spring will have the traditional round rear lights.
They also say that the new sedan, based on an XVL-badged prototype displayed at the '99 Tokyo motor show, was due to lose the Skyline tag.
But Renault-appointed Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn reversed the decision, despite the new car's break with Skyline traditions.
The badge is one of Nissan's oldest and the sporty versions have fans
- of both current and previous models - all over the world.
