Last week, I traveled to Japan to test drive the Nissan GT-R; this week, you can read more about the car’s capabilities in the magazine (there is no doubt that it is a monstrous machine). But while I was there, I made a startling discovery: this new Nissan is incredibly affordable in its home market, not just when compared to how much it costs here, but also when compared to its Japanese competitors.
The new GT-R is priced at 7.7 million Yen (31,000) in Japan, a Porsche 911 Turbo at little under 20 million Yen, and the new M3 at about 12 million Yen (48,000). Even the Corvette Z06, which was formerly the least expensive “supercar” available for purchase in Japan, costs more than the new GT-R at just under 9 million Yen.
It’s similar to contrasting a 20 Casio watch with a Rolex Daytona to compare the Corvette Z06 and the new GT-R in terms of technical sophistication and development expenses. There IS no equivalent. Nissan Japan, however, is adamant that it will continue to make money on every single GT-R it sells, even those that are purchased for 31,000 yen in Japan.
How many GT-R models exist in Japan?
Nissan, a Japanese carmaker, has launched the GT-R flagship supercar in its home nation for 2022. It comes in two limited-edition models: GT-R Track Edition and Premium Edition T-Spec.

What does GT-R mean?
Nissan’s high-performance sports car and grand tourer, known in Japan as the GT-R or Nissan GT-R, was first unveiled in 2007.
 It is the replacement for the high-performance Nissan Skyline version known as the Skyline GT-R. Despite being the sixth-generation GT-R model, this car is no longer in the Nissan Skyline model portfolio because the term is now only used for Nissan’s luxury-sport cars. The Nissan PM platform, which was designed particularly for the GT-R and is an improved version of the Nissan FM platform used in the Nissan Skyline luxury vehicle and the Nissan Z sports car, is the foundation on which the GT-R is constructed. Gran TurismoRacing, the acronym for which was coined from the Skyline GT-R, is known as GT-R. 
Unlike its predecessors, which were only available in Japan, the GT-R would be sold all over the world, according to then-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn, who made this decision in 2006.
Along with the PM platform and the specially developed VR38DETT engine, the production version of the GT-R debuted at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show also had a number of additional cutting-edge innovations. Steel, aluminum, and premium materials like carbon fiber make up the body as a whole. Due to newer legal changes, the GT-R has been withdrawn in the European and Australian markets after 15 years of manufacturing.
How much will it cost to bring in a Japanese skyline?
Fortunately, the demand for the Nissan Skyline is so high that many of them can be found for sale on American soil, and dealerships have sprung up all over the place that specialize in JDM imports. Once they have gone through the importation process, these cars can be purchased and sold in the same manner as any other domestic U.S. vehicle. However, there are a few extra requirements to meet if you wish to bring your own GT-R.
The process is substantially simplified because so many businesses that specialize in JDM are willing to handle the import snafu for you. One of the top importers in the United States at the moment is TopRank Importers, based in Cypress, California. Typically, shipping costs are fixed plus an additional import charge. Where things can become complicated is with this import tariff, as TopRank notes. As the import market for automobiles continues to heat up, the existing import duty rate of 2.5 percent may change.
There is a flat $5,500 price for export from Japan and import into the United States, said Sean Morris, owner of TopRank. Additionally, transportation to their California dealership is included in this set price.
How much is an R34 Skyline?
Currently, the base-model R34 Skyline GT R rarely sells for less than $100,000, while the rarest models, such the V or M spec Nr’s, sell for more than $300,000.
What exactly does JDM mean?
The term “Japanese domestic market” (JDM) describes the domestic market for automobiles and auto parts in Japan.
Contrary to popular belief, not all Japanese-branded automobiles fall under the JDM category. JDM refers only to a car built to be sold in Japan. [Reference needed]
When opposed to the American market, where car owners now keep their vehicles for longer periods of time—the average age of the American fleet of cars is 10.8 years—JDM market cars are more affordable. Gray markets and stringent motor vehicle inspections are challenges faced by Japanese owners. The Fdration Internationale de l’Automobile estimates that the average annual mileage of an automobile in Japan is only 9,300 kilometers (5,800 miles), which is less than half of the average annual mileage in the United States of 19,200 kilometers. 
Vehicles made in Japan for the domestic market may be very different from those made there for export or from automobiles constructed elsewhere using the same platforms. Japanese automakers are forced to develop innovative technologies and designs first in domestic automobiles because Japanese car owners prioritize innovation above long-term ownership. For instance, Honda’s Variable Cylinder Management made its debut in the 2003 Honda Inspire. However, VCM, which had a bad image from Cadillac’s attempt in the 1980s with the V8-6-4 engine, was absent from the 2003 Honda Accord V6, which had the same basic car and was primarily aimed for the North American market. The Accord V6’s facelift for 2008 saw the successful introduction of VCM.
The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) put safety-related limits on JDM cars in 1988, limiting them to 280 horsepower (PS) (276 hp) and a top speed of 180 km/h (111.8 mph). The speed limit of 180 km/h (111.8 mph) was maintained despite the removal of the horsepower cap in 2004.
