1992 Nissan Skyline GTS-4 Coupe
This stunning example of the legendary R32 coupe is an accessible, US legal, turn key sports car. This svelte two door ticks all of the important boxes; timeless styling, rugged durability, and top notch performance. Our little GTS-4 has been well cared for over the years. It features projection headlamps, rear spats, GT-R side skirts, and GT-R front aero. Each small detail adds to the distinctive flavor of this particular car. Finished in one of the most desirable colors, (732) Black Pearl Metallic, the paint shows little signs of wear and shines with great luster. The body panels have been kept up equally well; no notable dents, scratches, or scuffs are present. The 17" Huhrer Racing Sebring alloys give the car a more aggressive stance, and fill up the wheel wells nicely. It's measured balance of performance modifications really help to distinguish itself from a stock example, and equally improves the drive. Our expert technicians have made sure to bring all the necessary maintenance up to date. Services include six brand new spark plugs, a battery replacement, and an oil service. With a fresh Virginia state safety inspection and AWD, this coupe makes the perfect year round Skyline.
The interior has been nicely maintained and shows little signs of wear. Cockpit updates come from a pair of suede GTR bucket seats, and MOMO smaller diameter steering wheel. The air conditioning blows cold and the digital climate systems works properly. Both the seats and carpeting are free of any notable spills or stains. The rear passenger seats look rarely used, as is the case with most of the coupes. Bolstering is still premium, and the front occupants can ride comfortably for a long duration. Beyond light delamination of the driver door card, you can see the cabin has been nicely cared for. The R32 had several power amenities standard such as window, mirrors, and door locks, all of which are in good working order. Aluminum pedals add to the sporty nature of car and improve the spacing for easier blip shifting. The dash is free of cracks, although a small trademark Skyline dash bubble is present. On the plus side, the drivers bezel isn't cracked as many typically are, and it provides decent interior illumination for safe monitoring of the gauge cluster. The mileage was not verified before leaving Japan, but as it stands the cluster reads 19K miles, and we have taken this into account when pricing the vehicle.
Under the hood is the fire breathing, yet rugged, RB20DET straight six. This smooth engine has plenty of life left in it, and pulls strong up to redline. For better cooling of the charged air, a stealth black GT-R front mount has been shoehorned behind the bumper skin. Overall, breathing comes easier to this powerplant from a 2.5" Veilside exhaust and the HKS intake have been fitted. The polished muffler emits a nice mellow burble, which really suits this vehicle's personality. The aggressive tone is really brought to life by a set of Poncams that give the distinctive chop at idle. The ride height is lower than factory, and the suspension system is anything but stock. HKS coilovers sit atop all four corners, and a Cusco front brace stiffens the chassis. Ride quality is firm but not punishing, and cornering stays flat through the twisties. The 5 speed shifts well, and a short throw shifter and weighted knob, allow for more intuitive gear changes. Finishing out the engine bay is an HKS oil cooler and relocation kit, which adds a bit of pizzazz. Power delivery is seamless, and torque is directed to the front and rear wheel with little if any driveshaft slack. The GTS-4 borrows its bigger brother GTR's ATTESSA all wheel drive system. This performance based layout gives great front end grip, and allows the Skyline to exit corners with some serious speed. The secondary benefit would be to those who would want to drive the car in year round weather conditions, without getting stuck like the RWD version. For year round fun, the GTS-4 is as rewarding as it gets!
