There are many timeless cars. Manufacturers have been known to do it; create something accessible that resonates with the automotive zeitgeist of the time. Did people know the R34 was going to be a legend when it was first released in 1999? I’m sure owners and fans alike sensed that the car was going to be special.
Why does this car hold our attention even today? The design, the engineering, the aesthetic, the feel. The cars simply carry a presence about them, somehow aware of their importance. It would be a safe bet to say the car will continue to capture hearts and minds for generations to come.
