Posting a picture of an R34 is basically using a cheat code on /r/carporn
The “girl cosplay” of r/gaming
That escalated quickly
I wish I just said ‘i have no idea what that means’ and left it there.
Why did I click that.
Oh wow I don't know what I expected clicking on that link.
Wow, you ain't lying.
With a username like that... I don't know what I was expecting.
Best skyline gtr before it could be bought in the USA, also fast and furious movies.
It’s the newest one that was available in the early 2000s, the rarest one in USA right now.
They’re rare because to import a car to USA you have to do all kinds of certifications and crash tests etc.
So a company called Motorex did all this, and started selling the less powerful R33s in the early 2000s.
Later they started importing more poweful R34s as R33s, the feds didn’t like this and raided them. The R34s that were already sold weren’t asked back by the government, so there are a few on the streets cause of that.
They are RHD, and so were never sold in the US. As a result, they are extremely rare in the states, because they are extremely difficult to import. However, in 2027, because of the NHTSA's 25 year rule, all model years of the R34 Skyline will become legal to import, and they may be seen more often because of this. This phenomenon occured back when the R32 Skyline became legal to import a few years back.
The car debuted in 1998. Only 5 more years. And about $100k usd
That or an old school Muscle that my dad/grandpa/son/mom/sister’s wife had/owned/built together/won in a lottery from a Nigerean Prince.
"My dad passed away while saving children from a burning orphanage three years ago. His jet black 1969 Mustang was the only thing he left for me. It took over two years for me and my 4 year old austistic son to restore it back to full health. Today I got in, started the engine, and burst into tears. Here she is, Reddit."
Upvoted you because I subconsciously thought this was a real post you were making lol.
I’m stationed in Tokyo and the base is filled with these. I’m missing out on a lot of karma.
Now, a Mazda RX-2, on the other hand...
If I were to win the lottery or make it big, this would be the 1st vehicle I'd purchase. The GT-R Z-tune is the great Japanese sports car ever made
My garage would be filled with Supra’s and R34’s and S2000s and more and more ad infinitum.
So the set of Fast & Furious
That and like a bunch of BMWM cars.
Awww fuck yeaaa
With spoon engines?
And somehow more than $100,000 under the hood of that car.
This is my dream.
My garage would be:
91’ RX7 FC
RX7 FD Spirit R
Edit: Oh yeah, a GC8 and a 240z too
\+ Evo 6 and na1 nsx
Forgot those :D Evo 1 is my favorite Evo, though
a70 over an a80? I can dig it
Yeah, I prefer the A70. A80 is great but it’s a little to flashy for my taste. Plus pop-up headlights.
> My garage would be filled with Supra’s and R34’s
multiple R34's but no R32 :(
Bro I just want a Supra. Just one turbo 2JZ beauty. Please 😭
why no good cars?....I kid, I kid
The car in the photo is a v spec 2
But id sell my soul for a Z-tune
Why dont they remake these cars? Same body, modern upgrades if needed?
The same models wouldn't pass the safety regulations of today
DOES IT LOOK LIKE WE CARE?!
A arms and bumper? How? Surely you can keep the body, and update the safety (a couple tweaks here and there)
Several people tried it. Motorex is a prime example. The couple tweaks wind up being a lot and it never ends well.
Unfortunately I've seen pictures of people trying real hard.
The original designers already gave it their best shot.
They must be pretty shit at making a bad looking car if this is their best shot.
Looks like they succeeded to me.
That's nice. Now hop back into your 2002 Corsa and get outta here
Why are you so offended? Is this *your* car?
I'm not offended just making fun of you.
I know everyone wants a Z-tune, but all I really want is a completely stock V-spec II Nur.
dream car 🤤
These had so much character. Unlike the R35.
> Unlike the R35.
foh. Ive driven and owned some amazing R34 builds but the R35 is something else, especially with what you can do with them on the track
And yet the R35 is irredeemably ugly.
Someone downvoted you so I'll put u back up to 1, but I disagree. I think that the R35 (especially early renditions) has a lot of character. I mean, how do you get the nickname "Godzilla" without having a metric shitton of character :P
my b, thank you for correcting
The name Godzilla dates back to the R32, it doesn't represent the R35. The R35 inherited the name, but while it's still a great car, isn't Godzilla.
It’s not even a Skyline anymore. Just a GT-R :/
> """"Just"""" a GT-R
That's just fanboy talk. The GT-r is a beast of a car
Exactly. I think the R35 is receiving so much hate because it's become popular among non car enthusiasts and especially rich YouTubers. But it's a damn monster of a car
It is absolutely, but it's not Godzilla. The name Godzilla is due to the absolute domination that the skylines had over other cars of the the era. The R35 is highly competitive, but it isn't overwhelmingly so. The R32 (and R33 and R34) was nigh unstoppable.
I mean, for its price, the R35 hasn't got any competitors
I guess it's an unpopular opinion but I like the R35 look way better than R34.
I’m not saying it’s a bad car, I just think they should’ve kept the skyline name. GT-R is used for so many cars, it could just use more identity.
Yeah right you might be able to pass nearly anything on the road except for Porsche Turbos and gas stations... No it isn’t a beast. It might have potential to be turned into something extreme, but as a sports car as is it’s obnoxious af. I‘d literally rather have a MX-5 over a R35 GTR
As someone who has driven both, this is a dumbass statement. No you wouldn’t.
Not a Godzilla. The R32 (and only that one) goes by that name.
dream car, just gotta wait till i can import
Not sure how... but there are a few where I live in the U.S.
i'm pretty sure there was a company that imported them and said they were importing r32s but actually imported some r34s and then got shutdown by the fbi or something
There was. Doug Demuro has a video on an R34 and he talks about it there.
that may or may not be where i heard that
MotoRex. Also, Midnight Purple R34’s are legal because they’re a limited production car. I think the same goes for Silica Breath as well but I’m not positive
midnight purple is so beautiful of the r34
If you're talking about the Show or Display exemption, that only applies to NHTSA regulations. EPA still requires that all imported cars comply with their own regulations, which includes OBD2 compatibility, which I'm guessing this car does not have.
Whats worse is that it does. Its just that OBD2 is regional, and a JDM OBD2 ECU can't talk correctly to a USDM OBD2 scanner. Its stupid.
Some are, but the legit ones are imported under “car of significance” or some such stipulation.
That’s just a rumor. No one I’ve ever talked to in the US community (and it’s VERY small) has ever come across one imported under the show and display law. Risvu claimed they did and now they’re all in ICE custody / probably already crushed.
What about [this](https://www.importavehicle.com/vehicles/19/1999-nissan-skyline-gt-r)?
Not going to lie, seems legit unless Risvu pawned off one of theirs before they disappeared. They showed the NHSTA paperwork, which is important but not the only critical piece. Homeland security would've been the other paperwork to prove federal legality. I doubt NHSTA would grant show and display without the others being in alignment though.
That price... who the fuck would pay $150k for an R34. If you can afford that just move to Australia or Japan and buy one for like $25k
I mean youll have no prob getting a GTST for under 10k, but GTRs of this model sit above 70k USD here in Australia now.
It's been for sale for a long time. Not only is it way overpriced, but you can't drive the damn thing over 2,500 miles in a twelve month period. Fuck that. I would love an R34, but for that price, and with those stipulations, there is no way I would spend the money on that. I'm really curious to see how many get imported when they hit 25 years old, and how ridiculously overpriced they will be.
thats only a problem for the US right? europeans can get those if they wanted to?
yeah same in australia, NZ and canada plus basically every where else (?) except the US.
Because in America "Free Market" enterprise is the most important thing... until your campaign donors start getting competition from foreigners.
They're rare but you could find them in countries that drive on the left, like Japan
They are everywhere in Australia.
i'm not sure
What year is this one?
It's not a z tune in the pic its a v spec 2
Hm are you sure? because it looks like it has the vents near the mirrors. You can see them on the Z tune from behind here https://i.imgur.com/GOqa7rx.jpg
It’s missing the bonnet vents the Z-Tune has though, so it’s probably a replica. Still nice though.
Also the front bumper doesn't have the 2 intakes next to the turn signals on the front bumper like the Spec V 2. The Z tune doesn't have the intakes.
Not gonna lie... I just don't get this car. R34's look OKAY but the hype is just unreal. I didn't even like them in Gran Turismo 2. TVR 4 LYFE, MOFUKKA!
Some may get mad at me, but i personally think the R34 is ugly and looks like a boat.
Fanboys will downvote, but it does look kinda big and bloated in pictures. Bloated being the back half and big being the front half. That front bumper looks huge in pictures.
The funny thing is it's mostly perspective. They really aren't that big. They're just a couple inches longer and taller than an MK4 Supra. They're about the same length as a 5th gen Jetta if that helps put it into perspective with something more common.
As a person that loves this car I can totally see that. There have been times where I forget it's a coupe because it's so visually demanding
Personally I think the r34 looks pretty pretty boxy, but the real boat is the r33.
True, but at least the R33 is more angular. The R34 looks like a bloated, swollen R33 to me.
I like them but they are too boxy imo. I prefer the body style of the R33.
Honestly I don't get the hype around this car.... Then again I'm not a big fan of cars from Asia so maybe that is influencing how I see it.
I'm a huge fan of cars from asia and the GTR's from the r30 to the r33 are the best.
I've tried so hard to like asian cars but I've always seen them as knockoffs off what ever last years American/European car is. Kia and Hyundai are especially bad at copying the European cars and there design aspects, I saw a Hyundai with wheels identical to my gti wheels but with a Hyundai logo on it.
I've noticed that recently, It seems the Asian car industry is starting to copy American/European cars, and that makes me sad because i always thought of the Asian cars a difference from the Americans and Europeans.
I snapped a photo of a set of Hynduai wheels and a picture of my VW Gti wheels and the comparison is astonishing. http://imgur.com/gallery/HOD19Zv
wtff those are way too similar
If the shape was similar I wouldn't mind but those are a straight rip off.
Have you spent much time driving skylines? How many early 90s or 2000s Euro sports cars are as reliable as these, let alone when youre pushing boost through them into the 500hp+ range
Honestly none are going to have the reliability of a skyline..... But a skyline will never have the character or a European sports car, not in a million years
Character in what sense though? Seems like a completely subjective comparison.
Definitely subjective and I should have premised it with that.
Don’t like their look that much either. It has character, but it’s not particularly good looking
I wouldnt even say is has character. I talk to people who like R34's and they only know them from Fast and Furious lmfao
Honestly all I see in that car is a BMW M3 E36 with a different front end. These Japanese cars have no character because they are rip offs of the European cars with character.
Man... I get differences of opinion, taste, whatever... But you can't honestly think this looks anything like an E36 M3. I drove a 3 series for 12+ years and it looks *nothing* like one.
Both the R34 and any BMW look like ugly rectangles to me. Not as bad as 80s Mustangs though.
Maybe I'm blind but when I see an R34 it screams M3 to me.
Brace for the pitchforks, my brother with eyes.
I actually kinda like Skylines up until the R33. The R34 looks like an angry fat kid who ate a handful of bees.
Glad someone agrees with me ! The R32 is where its at tho ;) everytime i see one here down in cali its just a phat N U T
My "if I win the lottery" car.
Lets hope you don't live in the US when you win the lottery.
Yes, that is the Nissan Skyline GTR R34
Not just any R34 GTR though: [https://www.topgear.com/car-news/motorsport/sale-rare-nismo-z-tune-gt-r#1](https://www.topgear.com/car-news/motorsport/sale-rare-nismo-z-tune-gt-r#1)
EDIT: shenanigans! it's a Z-Tune Body Kit: [https://www.rightdriveusa.com/vehicle/2001-nissan-skyline-gtr-r34/](https://www.rightdriveusa.com/vehicle/2001-nissan-skyline-gtr-r34/)
I've got a 1991 R32 for sale if anyone's interested...
I would be more than interested but im only 15 and have no money feelsbadman
Pure sex. What a machine.
Wow. Any pictures from other angles?
[People really do favor the front driver headlight angle](https://www.google.com/search?q=Nissan+Skyline+GTR+R34&client=firefox-b-1&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiXhOq36PDbAhUD61MKHepfAS8Q_AUICigB&biw=1920&bih=943)
The closest I got to driving one of thsese was when my brother had an RB26 in an 240sx. The motor is as sexy as the car.
I've been lucky enough to drive one. Sweet cars.
well this is carporn
You know why I'm here.
If I someday dreamt of owning one of these, what would be a low end price for just a decent one
EDIT: I wanted to clarify I know how to use Google, there really weren't many popping up and the ones that were there were in different countries
Where do you live? Because if you're in the United States, they wont be legal to import until 2024.
In my opinion R34’s looks extremely beautiful in this color and also Blue
dream car 😍
Still not as good as a Supra!
I just gave out a little groan and my wife thought I was looking at boobs.
Explain me why people generally love the r34?
If every car on the road was this car, I’d be ok with it
We call it Gojira!
Everytime i see this car it reminds me of fast & furios, RIP paul waller
A true modern classic
If Hitman was a car...
I wonder if this car never featured in Fast Furious if it would be as expensive as its today with all the hype.
Ps: The R33 is the original Gran Turismo car which holds nostalgic value to whoever grew up playing that.
I like the skylines so much I’d drive the 4 doors and even the stageas.
My favourite car ever!, love the blue colour version!
Blue colour version..........
My dream car......
Not just any r34, this is a z-tune, one of only 19 built.
That is of course assuming it's a real ztune and not a clone.
Looks like there are engine bay cooling exits near the mirrors. Must be a Nissan Skyline R34 GTR NISMO Z-Tune.
EDIT: It's a sham! it's a regular R34 GTR with a Z-Tune Body kit: [https://www.rightdriveusa.com/vehicle/2001-nissan-skyline-gtr-r34/](https://www.rightdriveusa.com/vehicle/2001-nissan-skyline-gtr-r34/)
Nissan Skyline GTR R34, V spec 2.
It's not a z-tune.
Wrong front bumper for a V Spec 2. This car doesn't have the intakes next to the turn signals like Spec V 2. https://i.imgur.com/MIJppWH.jpg
It also looks to have vents next to the mirrors
It does have the Spec V hood though, which is weird.
There are kits, why would someone take the z-tune hood off a $500k car and put a v spec hood on.
The rims are not nismo also.
There's a dude that lives near me with a full after market z-tune kit on a nur still in jade green.
yeah, I just found this exact car for sale. it's a Z-Tune bodykit.
Damn good job on finding that
Yeah took a minute. I went back and edited my other comments saying it's a body kit.
Oh look, another GTR! Good thing there haven't already been posted 1 892 378 912 of them.
not just any r34, this is a Z-tune.
