6 Answers


Why not? Names for cars are pulled out of the designers asses most of the time. It could have some deep meaning, but I highly doubt it. It's badass regardless.


why are you called kubus? whats the big f***ing deal!

Yeah Lol I didn't mean to post this question but the car IQ glitched and I had to put a question up no matter what so I just made something up. Gotta delete it.

hey man no hard feelins, i was just thrown off by the question.

If you really wanted to know, Nissan R32/ R33/ R34 skyline were only made in Japan for 4 years a piece. The name Skyline actually means Godzilla. so in other words it is Nissan Godzilla R34. and it was named this because it was a road beast. Same as us having a Dodge Challanger its a dodge "challanger" because it makes competition. So it was their way at the time to try to say "hey, can you guys beat this?"
