You probably haven’t heard of the the Nostalgic2days show before. It’s not a big international motor show like the Tokyo Motor Show, and it’s not as crazy as the automotive circus that is the Tokyo Auto Salon. Despite flying under the radar for some time, the Nostalgic2days show celebrated its 10th anniversary this…
Today I accidentally posted about Buick too many times. I apologize and I’ll never do it again. Here is the opposite of a Buick, a Nissan Skyline.
I have looked into your heart and I know who you are. You grew up on Gran Turismo dreams, pitcturing the day when those radical Nissan Skyline GT-R speed machines would be legal (and like, really legal) in the United States so you could drive so fast and so gloriously into your shining future. But! I am here to tell…
In early 1980s, Nissan was on a mission. It was fighting Toyota for supremacy in the Japanese market, trying to prove itself with high-tech road cars and flame-spitting race cars to draw people into the showroom. And it was making a case for itself, but it had a problem.
The sweet smell of fresh strawberries in the garden. A cool breeze first cutting across a hot day. A BNR32 Skyline drifting in the sunset.
In case you didn’t know, Japan celebrates Thanksgiving Day, too. It’s not really the same as Thanksgiving in America, it’s more thanks for labour and production. But nevertheless at the end of every November the Japanese celebrate ‘Thanksgiving Day.’ I bring this up because right on the weekend following Thanksgiving…
Back in the 1970s, Nissan was sort of stuck in a rut. The gas crises had ballooned the profits and export sales of the Japanese auto industry as a whole, but Nissan had lost its edge against Toyota and even the young upstart Honda. Particularly bad was Nissan’s prestige model, the Skyline, which had gone from a…
R31 Nissan Skyline: underrated. Fortunately our friends over at Speedhunters have been giving it a lot of love lately, and you should check it out if you haven’t.
Good news Skyline fans, someone with a lot of trust for the general public has offered their 1990 R32 Skyline GTR to rent on Turo! For only $212 a day you can relive your right-hand drive dreams and go through fast-food drive-thrus backwards.
The original Hakosuka Skyline GT-R is among the most beautiful, charming automobiles ever made, one of Japan’s first world-class performance cars. I’ve always liked them as objects, but I never really knew if they were good to drive. I didn’t need to worry, apparently.
The 1970s ‘Kenmeri’ Nissan Skyline holds a very dear place in my heart, nestled in between the first tree I ever had a crush on and the time [REDACTED] while the music played in the art studio. Here is one with a Mazda 13B rotary swap. Its sound brings me great joy.
The Nissan Skyline GT-R is one of the greatest performance cars ever built. Almost all generations of Nissan’s top-of-the-line icon have been praised by critics, adored by owners and lusted after by fans outside Japan. “Almost” is the key word here. The porky, blocky R33 Skyline from the mid-1990s is kind of the ugly…
There’s no arguing your way out of this one when your friend was live-streaming the evidence. But dude! Sick three-block-long burnout!
Let these R30 Nissan Skyline rally drivers remind you that anything is possible!
“All the cool things people say about these cars are true.”
Hey, Santa Claus! You have some puny sleigh? How much power does it have, eight measly reindeer-power? Yeah, well, a pair of Easter Bunnies got a hold of the Links Team’s R34 Nissan Skyline drift car, and got mad sideways.
Fans of the Nissan Skyline are familiar with the RB series of straight sixes, now legendarily powerful engines never sold here in the United States. But there was an RB engine that stands above them all, an incredibly rare one, all because Nissan never built it.
The 1990s Nissan R33 Skyline in this video has a 3.0 liter RB30DET, an engine that was never sold from the factory, an aftermarket-only hybrid of a high-displacement block with a twin-cam turbo head. It is one of the coolest straight sixes of the modern era, and it is still utterly silenced by the scream of a…
Last month, I visited Hong Kong on a quest to get a taste of the territory’s thriving JDM car culture. In the process, I met Alan Chan, the most badass mechanic I’ve ever met.
Chris Forsberg has done a fine job establishing himself as an animal behind the wheel of a drift car, so I guess I’m not shocked to see he’s got great taste in tire-torching vehicles in general. At Nissan’s corner of this year’s LA Auto Show, he showed us around this striking Skyline-powered Datsun Z.
