1993 Nissan Skyline GTS-4 Sedan
Stock Number: 4399
Most of the nation experiences four seasons as a year, and for those not residing in Florida or California, snow could be in your forecast this time of year. Any rear wheel drive Skyline would likely have to stay tucked away in the garage, but the GTS-4 doesn't need to. This 1993 Series 2 is offered with only 120K verified miles and features a 2.0L turbo RB20, a manual transmission, and all-wheel drive. Finished in a stately (KH2) Gun Gray Metallic, the body is in good shape on this sedan. Other than a few minor dings and chips associated with normal use, this 27-year-old R32 drives like the sports sedan it is and can be utilized year-round for enthusiasts who don't let some inclement weather get in the way of their fun!
The cockpit of the R32 is fairly simple, yet has all the creature comforts one needs. The more muted tones chosen for interior allow the driver to focus on the road ahead. The skinny A-pillars and large front glass aid visibility. The dash is neither crack nor discolored, but does have the normal passenger side bubble. A NISMO style knob and MOMO steering wheel add a bit of sporty aesthetic to the interior, and other than the nonfunctioning head unit, are the only modifications inside. The digital climate system works as it should and other power amenities include one-touch windows, door locks, and mirrors. Unlike many sedans the C-pillar trim is unblemished and the power-folding function on the mirrors still works. The seats are soft, and comfortable, and match the doors cards. Devoid of any major rips, stains or tears, the front buckets are supportive and allow for long trips in comfort. The headliner and carpets are in above average shape for a car of this age.
The drivetrain on the GTS-4 is a combination of GT-R and GTS-t components. From a cost of ownership standpoint, the 1998cc RB20DET is easy to maintain and has massive parts support here in the states. The silky-smooth six fires up with a turn of the key, and benefits from a fresh oil service and engine air filter. Inherently vibration-free, the gasoline powerplant created decent midrange torque, and never feels that it lacks power. Acceleration is brisk, and the five-speed close-ratio gearbox is direct and communicative. Power is split between the front and rear wheels through Nissan's famous ATTESA all-wheel-drive system, which is the same one used in Godzilla. Tein dampers replace the OEM units giving the car a better stance and flatter cornering in the twisties. The suspension is communicative, and new rear HICAS arms freshen the system up a bit. To reduced body roll further, a front strut tower brace keeps the chassis buttoned up a touch more. The steering and braking inputs are confident and make this sedan a great candidate for a daily driver. The factory silver-colored alloys are shod with freshly mounted all-season tires that ensure premium grip and a safe ride.
This GTS-4 would be a great option as a weekend warrior, daily driver, or rally car. The turbo six, four-wheel drive, and manual transmission are what makes this stunning sedan a Japanese Classic.
