Since its introduction in 1963, whenever people have heard the word ‘Porsche,’ they’ve immediately imagined a car with a long hood and an engine hung …

The R34-generation Nissan Skyline GT-R is an automotive legend now, but back in 1999, it had to prove itself. That meant a Best Motoring track battle at Tsukaba Circuit against two Honda NSXes, a Mazda RX-7, two Mitsubishi Lancer Evo Vs, and the R34’s predecessor, the R33 GT-R.
