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.
How this Nissan Skyline wound up crashed into the side of someone’s garage, we do not know. What we do know is that the 17-year-old owner bought the car just an hour before slamming into a house, bringing instant shame upon car people everywhere—just like a Mustang at Cars and Coffee.
How is it that the longer I stare at R33 Skylines the more they look like alternate universe Mustangs?
So, it’s 1994. Bill Clinton is head honcho. O.J. Simpson makes the news for a casual highway jaunt. And you have the option of going home in either a Nissan 300ZX Z32 or a C4 Chevrolet Corvette.
Do I need an orange-over-black Hakosuka Skyline GT-R in my life? No. Very technically, I can survive without it. A sad, hollow survival, but survival nonetheless.
WHEN CROOKS CROSS THE LINE, YOU KNOW IT’S TIME. SKYLINE TIME.
Is it possible to fly to Japan, buy a car blind, fix it up, and run in a pro-am drift event in two days? Watch this guy find out!
