The Nissan Skyline GT-R was originally called the Prince. GT-R stands for Grand Turismo Racer. The decision was made to separate the R to make it known this is a racing vehicle. Another version of this car, called the GT-B, was also introduced, the B standing for Berlinetta.

The Nissan Skyline GT-R originally came out in the 1970s but it didnt do well. In 1973 production was halted until 1989. It came out in full force, with a reputation as being a powerful racing car to be reckoned with. This car has an edge in the racing sector because it offers hydraulic on demand four wheel drive and four wheel steering. The Nissan Skyline GT-R underwent many design changes in 1989 to be a top contender in the areas of speed and control. Production of this vehicle was halted again in 2002.

Owners of the Nissan Skyline GT-R take pride in owning such a vehicle. There are numerous clubs for owners of these vehicles. They have even made modifications to the cars to make them even faster. They have websites that advertise racing, vehicles for sale, repair information, and general discussions. Most of these cars have a high resell value because of the limited number of them manufactured in any given year. They never were a very common car, which keeps the market value high.

These Nissan Skyline GT-R enthusiasts take pride in the variations of their car from year to year because the production specifications kept changing. An evolution of the engine was done in 1990 and only 550 cars were produced. The engine was vamped again in 1991 with only 228 cars manufactured. A V-spec was added to the brake system for 1993. The 1994 Nissan Skyline GT-R had a change to the width of the tires. None of these changes are very big, but they make each year unique.
