Americans, we need to have a talk. Your greed is causing Japan to deal with a serious depletion of a precious resource. You’re hogging all the Skylines. That’s right, because with 1989 and 1990 Skylines now available for U.S. import, Americans are driving up the prices here at home.
The legendary Rb26 straight-six powertrain. ATTESA all-wheel-drive. A redline past 8000 rpm and at least 300whp. And hey, room for your dog!
Picked up a new lens for my camera this past week which motivated me to head on up to the weekly pissing contest in Woodland Hills, CA for the first time in a couple months. This week was the Ferrari/Maserati Marque event but every vehicle wearing Rosso Corsa or sporting a trident was upstaged by the spectacular…
In our travels to New Zealand, we drove a huge variety of cars, all of which were excellent in their own ways. But the one we were most excited about was, of course, the one we can’t have here for 9 more years: The R34 Skyline GTR. Almost like a bonus, this one makes four times the power it left the factory with, an…
Driving absurdly fast on public roads with general traffic on them is a colossally stupid idea, and this time it looks like the car agreed, committing suicide instead of being part of continued stupidity. The Kansas Highway Patrol arrested a man yesterday for going 176 MPH on Interstate 35, and caught him because his…
Okay, okay, so I promised you a Skyline, got your hopes up, and didn't deliver, but this really is a Skyline... Sort of. This R34 runs a Ford 410cu-in V8. Why the hell not? Take a look at how this black and green machine careens, and you'll wonder if its Frankenstein nature isn't just what the doctor ordered.
The Extreme Turbo Systems GT-R was put through its paces in the half mile, topping out at 220 MPH. Unfortunately, the driver lost control of the vehicle and went into a massive spin out. Fortunately, they appear to be in the middle of frikkin' nowhere, which is probably pretty good news for car and driver.
This is what life is like when you own a "federally-legal Japanese legend" here in the United States.
This is The Morning Shift, our one-stop daily roundup of all the auto news that's actually important — all in one place at 9:30 AM. Or, you could spend all day waiting for other sites to parse it out to you one story at a time. Isn't your time more important?
Despite my desperate lobbying and pestering, Nissan did not allow me to drive any of the cars in their terrific collection. While this rejection stung, badly, Nissan was at least nice enough to make two cars available for some short rides in the alleyway behind where the collection was housed. One of which was this…
Do you know what's really overrated? Hoods. Also, driving in a straight line. The R33 Nissan Skyline in this awesome photo isn't having either of those things, and it's better for it.
Before 2007, the Nissan Skyline was an incredibly rare sight on these shores. Getting one would cost you thousands more than the list price and one of your children. And after all that you'd still be sitting on the wrong side of the car. And then your car would get taken by the government.
Engine swaps are a common fantasy for gearheads, but this particular alliance is something few outside of a padded room would have ever considered.
Once again, Uncle Sam is showing his hatred of Nissan Skylines, this time in a physical rather than a regulatory way. Two Nissan Skylines — one featured in The Fast and the Furious — have been condemned by a Wisconsin court to be sent to the crusher.
Sony has a plan to make you forget all about the launch of that other racing sim today with the announcement of new downloads featuring 15 cars and two additional tracks as well as other in-game changes for Spec 2.0 of Gran Turismo 5 launching today. We hope you like four versions of the Nissan SKYLINE.
Before drifting made its way into the mainstream, the always on top of new trends Jeremy Clarkson went to investigate the underground phenomenon.
"JDM Legends" brings filmmaker Josh Clason and his Depth of Speed to Erik Bizek's shop to show off some of the very drool worthy vintage rides from the land of the rising sun he builds.
I don't know what the bike is, but the car is no less than a BMW E30 with a Skyline GT-R RB26 swap doing a wicked burnout while being jumped. It's the kind of mad collision of disparately awesome factors that make life worth living and Baseketball such a surprisingly funny movie.
The owner of one of the nation's largest forums for Nissan Skyline fans got a call three weeks ago from his wife, telling him that Homeland Security agents were on their doorstep looking to seize his Skylines. Their goal? "To get them off the road."
In its 2008 debut season, the NISMO GTR finished one-two in the first two Super GT races. It was the first time such a dominant opening performance had been seen in ten years. The previous car to do it? A NISMO Skyline GTR, of course.
