1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R NISMO

On April 24, 2007, the Nissan Skyline turns 50 years old, and Nssan is going to celebrate. For starters, there's already a JDM 50th Anniversary version of the current Skyline (Infiniti G35) on sale in three distinct color combos. In addition to that, however, the automaker is staging an exhibition in midtown Tokyo called Grand Touring - The Legend and the Future in which examples of all twelve generations of Skyline will be displayed. As you might have guessed from the name, there will also be information on the history of Japanese grand touring and its future direction. The exhibit will run from April 24 to May 6.

In other news, the Autoblog staffers wish they had an unlimited travel budget. Sadly, that's not the case, so we'll have to make do with the gallery below, which shows one example from each generation of the Skyline. Enjoy.

      "A G35 and acura RSX are rebadged not the other way."

      Have you ever bought a car in the United States? That's right, they're sold as "Infiniti G35" and "Acura RSX".

      Have fun with your JDM badges. I heard they get you mad chicks, yo. You won't even need to sweet talk them with ATESSA and VTEC.

      Rice is rice is rice is rice is rebadging is rice.

      A G35 and acura RSX are rebadged not the other way.

      In you gripe regarding "ricers" you mentioned appearance-only mods as the premise of your anti-ricing barrage. Now you apparently have the public well-being in mind with your little taillight/noise pollution bit. All just a weak attempt to justify your disgust with the "ricer" sector. You attempt insinuate that the behaviours are irresponsible and detrimental to the public, as a rationale for why you feel that the way you maintain your automobile is the 'right'way, and the way 'they' do it is the wrong way. These "ricers" are this generation's "hot-rodders", get with the times my friend. It's okay to live a little, don't be such a snob, it's only cars JJ.
      JJ is JJ is JJ.

      Your one of those people that knows very litle of the skyline. That is the normal skyline sedan(infiniti G35) and the G37 is the skyline coupe.
      The skyline has always been a sedan and a coupe.

      The GT-R is coming later this year it wont longer be based on the skyline coupe it will be a totaly diverent car.

      well... I wouldn't mind 'ricers' so much if they didn't sound and look like SHIT.

      But whatever...

      Can't really compare 'ricers' with 'hot rodders'. since hot rods looked cool ;) IMO, of course *rolls eyes*

      I agree #19 hot rods win for me in landslide too, but that's just the closest modern day equivalent. But there were people back in those days who thought the vehicles were being blasphemed as well.

      How much of an argument could there be Mr.Dy-No-Mite? "Your right officer it is an Infiniti G35 as the documentation states,but I replaced the badging to personalize it a bit to something more of my liking. Is that a crime officer? No? Oh, only in JJ-land, okay I'll be on my way then." What do you have against appearance only mods anyway? I mean some are a bit carried away, like when you see the typical mid 90's civic with a park bench for a spoiler. But other than, who cares, it's their car. You must have been in a real tizzy the day the racing stripe was invented.

      Care to explain how rebadging an Infiniti G35 as a Nissan Skyline is any less rice than rebadging an Acura RSX as a Honda Integra?

      Have fun with that one.

      Oh and with the nissans you get the coffee-can exhausts STOCK! W00T! Freaking comic when you look at them from the side - 1" pipe going into a 4" exhaust tip. Ricetastic.

      Hah, every car I've ever owned is japanese but nice try on the stereotype label.

      So when you get pulled over in your appearence-mods-only Infiniti "Nissan" G35 "Skyline" do you sit there and argue with the officer about the make and model? Do you try to get out of parking tickets because your aftermarket badges don't match what's on the ticket?

      Rice is rice is rice.

      Yes, in Japan they call the US Infiniti G35 and the new G37 coming out the Skyline. If you watch the new Best motoring Battle videos, the Infiniti G35 is the Nissan Skyline. In fact there is no such thing as Infiniti over there, they are all Nissan.
