The early 90s saw some of the coolest cars produced by Japanese car manufacturers and the Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 was one of them!
Japanese-built sports compact cars became some of the most desirable automotive hardware.
Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 was the ultimate turbocharged all wheel drive couple was available in Japan, which caused many people to attempt importing the popular car into the United States.
This car, which later gained the nickname ‘Godzilla’, was one hell of a difficult car to certify in countries other than Japan.
It turns out if a car is over 25 years old, you don’t have to go through legal mess to be able to get it on the road in America.
That’s of course taking into consideration is passes all road safety standards.
To import the Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 nowadays, all you need is to roll it onto a boat in Japan and get it rolled off in the U.S. then simply drive away with a license plate on it.
We must thank the high rollers for this change that derived from a with a high demand a couple years ago to drive the turbocharged all-wheel-drive Porsche 959.
Shows what a group of eager high rollers can really pull off, they helped inspire a rewrite of the rules for importing cars for private ownership.
Japanese manufacturers were the automotive leaders for high-tech cars in the 90s and that’s a real landmark in Japanese automotive engineering.
It’s the real reason why Nissan developed the all new GT-R that we know today.
