The GT-R name was dormant until the R32 model of 1989, when it was applied to a coupe with a 276-horsepower in-line 6-cylinder. Nearly 44,000 were produced over a five-year run; most were white, Japan’s racing color.
The GT-R R33 model was made in 1995-99 and included an active limited-slip center differential and antilock brakes. Total production came to about 16,000, including a racing version that developed 400 horsepower.
The 1999-2002 GT-R R34 introduced multifunction display screens. The base model had seven screens and the V-Spec had nine, including a measurement for G-force and a lap timer. (On the 2009 model, the PlayStation persona is more evident: its switchable dashboard can display 11 screens of data, including mechanical and driving information; acceleration; brake-pedal pressure; steering angle; and a 20-minute recording function with playback.)
A total of 11,310 R34s were built. The rarest and most expensive are the racetrack-ready Z-tune version, built after the end of regular R34 production.
