Nicole and I will be there.  We will be rolling out with a group from Elicit Design Solutions at 7:15.  Should be there around 7:45.  Unless we pick up someone I am not aware of, I will be the only GT-R in our caravan.

Messing around with colors

Silver and black are the best I think

It is favorable in black for the same reason the C7 Vette is... the black hides a lot of the discordant features.  Based on the earlier pictures, I think the white with the V-motion grill blacked out will probably look the best for the new design.

OK, here's my final take after looking over all the new pics and information.  Great job, Nissan!  Not because I like it.  I don't entirely.  There are things I like and things I don't.  That will probably be true for most of us.  However, it is without doubt different looking from the prior models.  Whether that is more good or more bad will always be up to your personal preferences.  But I think this was a refresh geared not toward selling a current GT-R owner another GT-R, but probably pulling additional sales from people who do not and have not bought one previously.  I would not trade my car in for one (even if I had not modded it a good bit), but in terms of drawing new sales I think it will appeal to the right people.

Took these just for you. The front mouth is 2020 vision GT inspired so it has a bit of an overhang

I think the two things that put me off the new front are the non-functional side vents which could be corrected with aftermarket pieces, and that chrome piece.  Here on the white, that blends rather nicely but on the orange it stands out in a bad way.

thanks, Matt!  I'm not sold on the overall front end changes, but I do like the new profile. It's hard to picture on its own, but here is a quick match up to the 2015 front end.  Definitely more aggressive looking from this angle.
