Watch 60 Years of Nissan Skyline/GT-R Go By In A Couple Of Minutes

There are few model lines that get the heart racing quite like the Skyline and GT-R, so we’re pretty happy someone has gone ahead and put this animated clip together.

Nissan’s been making these cars since 1957, spanning 60 years of production now – from the first-generation Skyline to the latest supercar-killing GT-R Nismo.

Over those six decades, the model line has evolved dramatically from a four-cylinder sedan to a turbocharged supercar (or supercar-killer). It’s quite a progression, and one that we’re glad has since made its way to America.

The two-and-a-half-minute video is the latest in a series from Donut Media, which has done the same thing with such icons as the Porsche 911 and BMW 3 Series, along with Le Mans winners and even F1 steering wheels and racing helmets.

      +1, but also the hakosuka….cool video BTW & to answer the question of which car to do next?, the Mitsubishi Evo for me

      R33 for me. It just looks so solid in a ’90s/2000s Audi kind of way, like a cruise missile.

    The Infiniti G35 was also sold as a Skyline in Japan.

    The GT-R is what the NSX should’ve been, $100K was an easy market to corner now they have mass stock sitting in the showroom.

    There’s a great article on Japanese Nostalgic Car detailing the history of the Skyline:

    There’s a great article on Japanese Nostalgic Car detailing the history of the Skyline. I’d post a link, but it’ll get stuck in moderator limbo like my last attempt. Google: “How Nissan celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Skyline in Japan”
