First off A. Where do you live? Makes a difference.

and B. Both are extremely OVERPRICED here in the states if that is where you live and I advise you to look other places.

97 TT supra, good luck finding one for under $27k IF that. As for an R34 GT-R, heh, you're looking at close to $70k+ for that.

Both engines have huge potential, but both come at a HUGE price. People wonder Why I got my 300zxtt over everything else.... They DO have 800+rwhp 300zx's you know

it depends on your budget to get upgrades too.
both cars have the potential.

depending on your area, the upgrades may be cheaper for either one car or both,...

hope this helps.

Hmm, now if I read this correctly. You want a car for "SPEED". Of all the cars that have "SPEED" the first thing that came to your questioning is whether to buy a 97 Toyota Supra or a Nissan Skyline? You want to know wich engine is better, which has more HP, and wich is faster stock. You also would like to know which can obtain a faster speed via aftermarket products and would be the cheapest. You give us no information about wich Supra or wich Skyline you want us to compare. Both of these cars cost well over $25K, and have a top speed of 140mph+ in the lowest base model. You know absolutley nothing about these expensive cars other than their names, and you want them for "SPEED". Let me speak for everyone here when I say God help us all...

Please clarify yourself, because I surley can't help you if you don't even understand what it is you're asking.

the cars are quite different: (assuming you mean the Skyline GT-R) RWD vs AWD/RWD (quite a fantastic system, similar to porsche's system), 4 wheel steering on the GTR, the exclusivity of the GTR in the states. But stock for stock, they are very close, and since it costs quite a bit to get them both to high hp/tq levels, look at other factors than speed.

Hmm 991 RWHP? I've been behind the wheel of a street sweeping 500+ RWHP Supra buddy, and it aint nothing nice. You opened up a magazine and you want a fast Skyline. I can see your future, and it looks something like this


For those of you who cant tell that is a crashed Nissan Skyline.

What I really don't understand is why people want a 'fast' street car when the average speed limit is 55MPH. If you want speed people, get a real muscle car and head to the track.

Get the Supra and save yourself $50k. Getting a Skyline imported to the U.S. is ABSOLUTELY pointless. Hell, if anyone wants a Skyline that bad wait until the 2007 model year when the R36 platform is brought over here and get some turbo or V-8 power which is absent on out current R35 platform (G35) Skyline we get now.
