The best sports cars made by Nissan are fun, fast, and surprisingly affordable. In addition to the Juke and Leaf, Nissan produced a plethora of powerful sports cars.
These are four of the brand's fastest and most exciting vehicles, ranging from the iconic Skyline to its sole supercar.
4. Nissan R390
The one and only street-legal Nissan R390 will serve as our introduction.
Because the R390 was a race car, Nissan was required to produce at least one road-going model for homologation purposes. As a result, there is only one.
The automaker actually intended to produce a few more, each costing $1 million, but nothing came of it.
It's a pity it didn't, as this is an excellent vehicle.
The Nissan R390 has a top speed of 354 kilometers per hour and has 550 horsepower from its 3.5-liter V8.
3. Nissan Z
The new Nissan Z, which is known in Japan as "Fairlady," has a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that sends 400 horsepower to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission.
Things from the past.
The Nissan Z is fun, fast, and relatively inexpensive, costing $42,000, which is good news.
The bad news is that it is not available in Europe or the UK, but only in Japan and North America.
Additionally, a spoiler alert: Han will drive the Nissan Z in the upcoming Fast and Furious 10 finale.
2. Nissan GT-R
Nissan made the decision to take things to the next level with the GT-R of today. The GT-R's goal was to combine luxury car comfort with supercar-level performance.
It has modern amenities and an advanced infotainment system, but it is still faster than the majority of sports cars on the road.
The 2024 Nissan GT-R can go from a standstill to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds with the Nismo specification.
A GT-R cost only $70,000 when it was brand-new.
Those days are long gone, but the GT-R still costs less than most of its rivals, starting at $117,000.
1. Nissan Skyline GT-R R34
The Fast and Furious film series has made the Skyline a household name and a costly vehicle.
The fifth-generation Skyline GT-R, which debuted in 1999, is a cultural icon that still has the ability to compete with the majority of contemporary sports cars.
With 330 horsepower and a 0-100 km/h time of just over 4 seconds, even the entry-level model is fast enough.
The Skyline GT-R R34 is revered by collectors, but its current extreme rarity presents a challenge.
Nowadays, a brand-new Porsche Cayman costs the same as a pre-owned model in good condition.
