After 2002, the GT-R split from the Skyline, and a new Skyline would come over to America as the Infiniti G35. Nissan would take their time in bringing back the GT-R, but when the first non-Skyline GT-R was unveiled in 2007, it was an awe-inspiring piece of machinery. The R-series Skyline GT-R was the Holy Grail of tuner cars, a cheaper, more customizable and street-legal Porsche 959. This wasn't just a sports car, but a serious street able race car. The mythological status it achieved might have been helped by its rarity, but don't think for a minute that this was a car undeserving of the hype.
