    Honda to design the next Nissan GT-R?

    Yep, it's official, Carlos Ghosn of Nissan, has asked for Honda's help in making the GT-R more user friendly to the younger crowd.

    This is what they came up with... :roll:

    Ah yes, the horrible Honline or Skyda tuning. It's always driven me nuts to see a Honda (which I have to be honest I dislike) with Skyline parts.
    Here's a Prelude with R33 tail lights:

    A Prelude with R34 tail lights:

    Think this is an Accord... has R33 tail lights:

    And what's worse is that it has a Supra front lights/bumper:

    And though not Skyline parts, here's a CRX with a very horrible BMW grill & Mercedes head lights idea:

    Why hasn't natural selection prevented this madness?!

    On the other hand, there are few cars that can pull off the Skyline tail light mod properly. And the only ones I've seen that have done a decent job are within the family tree. Like a 300zx:

    OMG... those are some automotive monstrosities, right there. I think the Accord with the Supra nose and the CRX with the Mercedes Benz E-class headlights/BMW grille, take the trophy, for OOGLY. :lol:

    I agree with you, that 300zx can pull those R32 taillights off... at least it's staying brand loyal. I hate when people try cross/branding cars, that is so stupid.

    If you're gonna do a Honda, at least use an S2000 or NSX parts... not Skyline or Supra pieces.

    Gotta love the fake me out R33/R34 Acura Skyline Legends... a FWD GT-R?? :roll:

    Someone posted a 280ZX with DR30 taillights that looked killer. I think Nakazoto posted the thread.

    Now if we're being 100% honest, I gotta say the tail lights don't look that bad...

    It's the execution that sucks. And all the other attendant "crap" that comes with it. If the tail lights were adapted to one with a stock ass and a decent paint job, it would blend in just fine. But only if it's just the tail lights... :P

    Actually, that doesn't look too bad. It's clean, plus it looks ALOT closer to a Nissan Skyline than the Hondas do.

    A Proton is really a Mitsubishi, right? :|

    Well that particular Proton model (Impian/Waja) was designed in-house but still powered by a Mitsubishi engine initially, later powered by Proton's own Campro engine.
