These days Nissan
's GT-R and Skyline may be two different models - the former a standalone supercar and the latter essentially a rebadged Infiniti
G37 - but the two owe their lineage to the same car. The Skyline was originally developed by the Prince Motor Company, which merged with Nissan in 1966. Development of the Skyline has proceeded over the decades since then, but first put its name on the map at the Suzuka circuit in 1964. That's when the Skyline lined up for the Japan Grand Prix.
