Want Bang For Buck? — The best car Nissan has made has legendary performance way ahead of its time, competitors 21 years later still cant compete. So good on the racetrack it was banned in most events. Has dominated all kinds of motorsports, it is the legendary Nissan Skyline.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Its unbeatable in its top modified form. Cabable of 8 second quarter mile times in full street trim

Cons: Cops love to pick on you even if you havent done anything

Very Fun When You Know What You Are Doing — performance, awesome! drifting is a lot of fun, its a pretty expensive one to have especially on gas, but the most fun car i have ever driven by far!!! repairs can be a pain in the ass with the limited under hood space lovely nissan left you with, but its all fun and games finding a way around fun little obstacles like that!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: fun as hell!!

Cons: if you dont respect the power you will get burned

Its Cheap, Its Quick, And It Take And Breaks Corners! — With an Rb20det the Skyline offers brisk acceleration and an acceptable top speed along with decent gas millage when driven "nicely" . However, with its rear wheel drive capabilities threw corners the Skylines ability to come alive in your hands really sets it apart from anything else! It is an exceptionally fun and exciting car to drive, and does not fail as a heart starter. Headed for its 21st birthday and being winter driven for 3 years (by the previous owner) the Skyline shows minimum rust and a clean underside but these factors truly rely on how you maintain it! These cars can be as good as you want them to be as long as your ready to put the time and effort into them.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: RWD, Quick grippy handling, Excitement!

Cons: If you don't have the time or interest to work on a car, a skyline isn't for you.

It's Good, I'd Miss It A Lot If I Didn't Have It. — For it's age it does really well and a lot of people agree. It's not turbo but the small mods give it a fair bit extra. It has a droney exhaust but hasn't needed major work. The gauges are dodgy and i've got no odometer and the interior is a bit blah. handles well and looks good lowered.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Power is good and I like that it's easy to work on. Kinda like the long but skinny design.

Cons: i'd avoid this car if you expect it to be like newer Skylines. Or if you think it's like a family car.

R31 Skyline Silhouette Gts 2 — The Skyline Silhouette GTS 2 - is a fantastic car to own and drive. Australian Build one of 200 made. The RB30E in the GTS 2 is a great with the added CAM to give the motor a nice lump on idle.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great Original Car, nice note and a Thrill to drive.

Cons: Becon Red - is prone to fading.

6 Cylinders Of Inline Boost — Performance wise im pretty happy with this car, 4WD launches are nuts, eats G35s for breakfast. even though its a sedan it is still a skyline. This car is so much fun to drive and just as much fun to be a passanger

My Skyline! — performance-theres a bit of lag until full boost,apart from that it goes well,brakes really good,handles pretty good around corners but not as good as a silvia. build quality-factory,it is nice,mine squeaks tho because of the mod's & pulling it apart how many times haha. cost of ownership-the engine starts every time,have never had any issues.only gets about 350kms on a tank of gas,less if you feel like boosting heaps. fun factor-love it,goes well for a daily driver now,& the power is there if i need it haha.

Pros: not too expensive for anaverage fun car

Cons: r32 are getting a bit old now
