First established in 1911 by three entrepreneurs, Nissan (originally named Kaishinsha Motor Car Works) built its first car just three years later in 1914. Over the next two decades, the name of the startup changed to Kaishinsha Motorcar Co., Ltd, DAT Jidosha & Co., Ltd and Datsun before settling on Nissan as an abbreviation of Nihon Sangyo. This holding company was created by entrepreneur Yoshisuke Aikawa back in 1928 and proved to be integral for the growth of the automotive giant we now know as Nissan. As one of Japan's leading car manufacturers, it has come a long way from its humble beginnings building cars 108 years ago. Since its appearance in 1969, Nissan's Skyline GT-R has been a symbol of performance and innovation. The GT-R was produced as a competitive motor racing vehicle and then became available to the public in 1973. With an evolved All-Wheel Drive system and high-end four-wheel steering capabilities, the Skyline enthralled drivers looking for a thrilling ride. After many years as a mainstay of Nissan's lineup, production ceased in 2002, replaced by the R35 GT-R. But even now, the legendary Skyline GT-R enjoys immense respect for its powerful engine and cutting-edge engineering that announced Nissan's dominance on the road and track.
