IIRC they're not from the factory but Autech (company name) make them, I don't know if it's a modded GTR shell or a 4Door with GTR engine and running gear.

But not Nissan made.

Clicked on the thread having seen the title and was hoping to see pictures of a lady's furry front bottom.

Never mind.

Love the 4-doors though - whether it's fake or not - what a class car.

Autech is owned by Nissan. They do all sorts of conversions to Nissan vehicles, ranging from camper conversions through to tweaked Skylines.

They did my R31 GTS Autech, only 200 made. Then came the R32 Autech which was a 4 door fitted with an RB26DE (yes that is correct, NO turbo's ;) ).
Then was the 34 shape Stagea 260RS Autech with GTR running gear.
Then was the R33 Autech which was a 4 door with modded shell and GTR running gear. It was done as a 40th anniversary model.

Last R33 Autech I saw in auction had a START price of about 16,000

R31 GTS Autech
R32 Autech
Stagea 260RS Autech
R33 Autech

Consider yourself proven wrong Trev ;)
