Generation 1: Prince Skyline (1957-1967)

Our journey begins with the roots of the Nissan Skyline, known as the Prince Skyline. Launched in 1957, this inaugural model laid the foundation for the legendary lineage that would follow. While the Prince Skyline may seem worlds apart from its modern counterparts, its design principles and engineering innovations paved the way for the high-performance legends we cherish today.

Fast forward to the late '60s, and we encounter the birth of the first GT-R variant. The Nissan Skyline GT-R established itself as a dominant force on the racing circuit, earning the nickname "Hakosuka" among enthusiasts. With its sleek profile and powerful inline-six engine, the Hakosuka is a timeless classic that continues to captivate JDM enthusiasts worldwide.

As the '70s unfolded, the Skyline underwent a transformation, adopting a more muscular and aggressive appearance. The third generation, commonly referred to as the Kenmeri Skyline, featured distinctive styling and continued the GT-R legacy. Its popularity skyrocketed, making it a sought-after collector's item today.

Generation 4: R31 to R34 (1985-2002)

The subsequent generations, from the R31 to the iconic R34, solidified the Skyline's reputation as a high-performance powerhouse. Notable models like the R32 GT-R, with its cutting-edge ATTESA E-TS all-wheel-drive system and the RB26DETT engine, became synonymous with racing success. These iterations propelled the Skyline into the international spotlight and set the stage for its global recognition.


Generation 5: The Transition to Infiniti (2006-Present)

With the evolution of the Skyline came a strategic shift in branding. In 2006, Nissan introduced the Infiniti G-Series, effectively merging the Skyline and Infiniti brands. While this move marked a departure from the standalone Skyline nameplate, it opened new avenues for luxury and performance enthusiasts.


Generation 6: The Modern Era (2007-Present)

Today, the Nissan Skyline continues to push boundaries and redefine automotive excellence. The latest iterations boast cutting-edge technology, jaw-dropping design, and unparalleled driving dynamics. From the Skyline 350GT to the latest models, Nissan's commitment to innovation ensures that each generation surpasses its predecessor.
