Note From The Editor
JB Skyline was founded in 2000 with the intention of providing as much information about the Nissan Skyline as possible. At that time, the Nissan Skyline was sold primarily in Japan, as well as a few selected markets worldwide.
Things have changed considerably since then. The Nissan Skyline is now sold as the Infiniti G worldwide, as is its decendant, the legendary Nissan GT-R. Even a crossover SUV, as well as a convertible has joined the lineup.
What has not changed, however, is the Skyline's appeal on enthusiasts around the world. Especially the Nissan GT-R has been highly acclaimed since its introduction in 2007 and continues its success on race tracks around the world.
At JB Skyline, it is still our aim to provide as much information about the Nissan Skyline as we can. And now we have more to write about than ever!
If there is anything you would like to know about the Nissan Skyline, Nissan GT-R, Infiniti G25, G35, G37 or EX35, please let us know.
