Technically, the 2009 Nissan GT-R isn’t a Skyline — that distinction now belongs to what we know as the Infiniti G series, which is marketed as the Nissan Skyline in Japan. But don’t let the official nomenclature fool you. From its familiar twin-turbocharged engine with all-wheel-drive layout to its telltale circular taillights, there’s no mistaking the new Nissan for anything but a modern-day Skyline GT-R.
