That R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R You Want? It'll Now Cost You Double

You're not the only one in the market for one.

With the 25-year ban on importing a JDM R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R to the US having now ended, there’s been plenty of interested buyers. Perhaps too many. Not so long ago we reported, based on one customer’s experience, that it’ll cost a reasonable $15,000-$20,000 to buy and import from Japan an R32 in good condition and with relatively low mileage (considering its age). Many figured the price would have been quite a bit higher, thus creating a sudden surge in demand.

According to some digging around by Road & Track, that same R32 is now costing US buyers $20k-$30k. Fortunately however, this pricing isn’t expected to last forever. Once the R32 hype dies down a bit in a year or two, prices will probably return to what they were several months ago. If you’re willing to wait a few more years, pricing will likely continue to drop even further. Why’s that? The R33 and R34 import ban will be lifted in 2018 and 2024, respectively.
