Chicago Nissan Dealer Continues the Legend of the GT-R Legacy

Chicago Nissan showroomThe continuing story of the Nissan Skyline is one that has weaved itself through the decades. From its humble beginnings to its modern day incarnation as a no-holds speed machine, the Skyline played an important part in shaping a modern day vehicle renowned for its power, performance, and razor sharp style. Every stage of its development is important to observe as it became what we know now as the Nissan GT-R sports car.


Whereas we previously learned about the Skyline’s early days as a fledgling vehicle of the Prince Motor Company, we pick up in the late 1960s, after Prince had merged with Nissan and began manufacturing newer vehicles. Our Chicago Nissan dealer has the details on the decade where the world was finally introduced to the GT-R and how that came to be.


The Emergence of the Skyline GT-R


The C10 Skyline series was released in 1968 and was marketed with a Nissan badge that had replaced all Skyline nameplates on cars and trucks. Like the S57Nissan GT-R in Chicago model, the C10 Skyline had a 1.5-liter overhead camshaft G15 I4 engine, but an additional model housed a 1.8-liter G18 engine. It was during this time that the vehicle began to define itself as a sport-oriented sedan and coupe.


The first GT-R emerged in 1969 and was internationally known as the “Hakosuka,” which when translated means “Boxy Skyline.” It was equipped with a 2.0-liter 160-horsepower S20 direct overhead camshaft I6 engine, the first of its kind designed by former Prince engineers. Although it began as a sedan model, a coupe version hit markets in 1970 and 1971.


Chicago Nissan GT-R enthusiasts will appreciate that, after ridding themselves of all unnecessary equipment to make them lighter and more fit for racing, the Skyline GT-R sedan and coupe won over 50 victories by 1972. By this time, the vehicle’s next series was ready for manufacture and release.


Produced between 1972 and 1977, the Skyline C110 generation put out a four-door sedan, two-door hardtop coupe, and a five-door station wagon. This series of Skyline was known as the “Kenmeri” or “Ken and Mary,” taking its unofficial namesake from its advertising campaign featuring a young couple that went by the two names.


In September 1972, the Skyline GT-R arrived but ceased production by March 1973 as the oil crisis swept the nation. As people began gravitating towards more fuel-efficient and economy cars, sport and racing cars were shunned. Unfortunately, this was the last time a GT-R model was released until 1989.

Chicago Nissan GT-R Dealer Details Skyline Early Days and Legacy

Nissan GT-R in ChicagoDoubtless you have learned that history is an important thing to keep documented. The beginnings of something are a good way to measure growth and to analyze what factors brought success and which ones spawned setbacks. In the automotive industry, history is forever growing as new models supplant old ones and innovative new methods and strategies begin to dominate more classic styles of thinking.


What heritage is more exciting than that of the sports car? Built to become the ultimate speed machines, these vehicles are steeped in a past that is worth analyzing. Our Chicago Nissan GT-R dealer wants to detail the early days of Nissan’s Skyline model line to show how dynamic this industry has become over the years.


Sport Legacy


First introduced in April 1957, the Skyline was originally produced by the Prince Motor Company as a luxury vehicle. Original four-door sedans and five-door station wagons featured a 1.5L GA-30 engine that produced just 60 horsepower and could reach up to 87 mph.


Throughout the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, the Skyline received several updates including quad headlights in 1958, a facelift in 1960, and two stronger engines. Chicago Nissan showroomChicago Nissan GT-R enthusiasts will appreciate that around this time, the Skyline Sport arrived on markets in stylish coupe and convertible trims.


September 1963 saw the introduction of the second generation S50 Skyline Deluxe. Fashioned with a stronger engine and multiple trims, the S50 was designed with rounded brake lights, integrated taillights, and a centrally installed turn signal to adapt to the evolving designs of sedans and coupes.


In May 1964, Prince manufactured the racing GT Skyline that used a large six-cylinder G-7 engine. It entered the second Japanese Grand Prix and managed second through sixth places against the likes of the Porsche 904. Because of this success, the Prince Skyline 2000GT was released to Japanese markets.


In 1966, Prince Motor Company merged with Nissan and began developing new vehicles and updated models. This included the introduction of the S57 Skyline in 1967. The featured Overhead Camshaft 1.5L G15 engine was the most powerful engine in the Japanese 1500cc class at the time.


Eventually, the 11th generation of Skyline distanced itself from past models by leaving out some key features from the previous generation such as the straight-6 engine and turbocharging. Although it is no longer part of the Skyline range of vehicles, this became the Nissan GT-R, successor to the Nissan Skyline GT-R.


We are only scratching the surface on this vehicle’s great legacy. For more information or to speak with one of our representatives, contact our Chicago Nissan GT-R dealer today!
