This question has been probably asked before, but I'm still curious. Since I'm an American who lives in the US, I was wondering what are your thoughts on the price of the R34 when it becomes legal for us? Will it be astronomically high? Or will it just rise by a little bit than it already is? My prediction is that it will be sitting around 50-70K USD all said and done. I for the life of God cannot see it going to around 100K USD because many of the people who want it don't have that much money, and because that would be a very expensive 25 year old Nissan. It's a brilliant car, but it should not be valued at that high of price. What are y'all thoughts on this? I'd love to know cause I would sure love to buy one once they become legal :D :popcorn:

A 34GTR is too expensive ?

I think you you mean for you. Now I might well agree with you but as long as there are people who will pay those prices that IS the market value.

Also the USA doesnt determine the prices of cars -It can raise it but not lower it.
With the 32 it raised for the above reasons but if the US doesnt value the 34 like the rest of the world this will not lower the price.

Also it is worth noting the value of other classic cars - Escort and cortinas have gone through the roof . early 911s were there a wjile back and now gone stratosperic,
34GTRs are as iconic as the fords so dont expect the prices to come down,.

A person in Florida posted on a Facebook page that I am a member off who sells R34***8217;a. He has R1***8217;s, Nur spec etc cars in stock but says the car***8217;s that he sells are the ones at the cheapest end of the scale. The non V-Spec or V-Spec models.

Does leave the question of how all these cars are being sold in Florida when not all of them are properly legal yet. I know about the stories of illegally imported cars.

Back onto this topic, they will raise some more and settle down eventually. I wouldn***8217;t be surprised is a V-Spec is priced at $150,000 atleast

Slightly off topic, but kind of related. There was an NA2 NSX-R that recently went for close to £200k. Madness
Just over 28 million Yen - in Japan, sold at auction this week. I don't think anybody outside of Japan would have paid this, bearing in mind the strength of the Yen against £, Euro, $, etc. - before exporting to another continent and paying hefty duty / taxes. Supercar money.

Then again the NSX-R is super rare and a true icon in Japan, it's no normal NA2 NSX. At the price it sold at (car had around 33,000km, IIRC) it'll probably be worth more in years to come if mileage and condition remain largely the same, so it was probably a good investment for one rich Japanese enthusiast. These don't come up often at all...

They're being sold as state titled. None of them are Federal legal. People in America also don't understand these cars won't be able to be registered when they hit 25 years old either as its from the date of import into the USA. They run a big risk buying a 34

That doesn't include the show and display exempted 34's tho (only two particular models are allowed)

We were discussing similar things on your other thread...

http://www.gtr.co.uk/forum/537250-need-help-deciding.html#post5484674

Same thing still holds true. WHATEVER you wish to buy, buy NOW and pay for storage until legal in the US. It will be WAY cheaper in the long run than waiting...
If that's not an option right now then better start saving at a higher rate as you're going to get a proper spanking when the dealers start peddling their wares when the flag drops on selling legal skylines.

Any US dealer with even the slightest bit of savvy will be buying up stock NOW at current prices and storing them up. It may even benefit them to take the subsequent time to restore said stock to A1 condition so they are in a position to sell 'premium grade' cars..

Yeah, Florida is notorious for illegally imported R34s. It's state legal, but make sure you don't drive it in super restrictive emission states like Cali. They're selling them for around 90-120K and so far I have not seen anyone purchase one yet. Been looking through the R34s and they have the same exact cars a few years ago. Nobody seems to be buying the R34s for that high of a price. Even saw the legend Sean Morris trying to sell a midnight purple R34 for around 150K and nobody bought it yet, even when it was posted for sale 2-3 years ago.

I think you you mean for you. Now I might well agree with you but as long as there are people who will pay those prices that IS the market value.
As brilliant as the R34 is, I would not pay 100K or more USD for it. I love it to bits, but in my honest opinion it is not worth that much money. That's just me though. Even most old school 911s are not selling for over 100K, and those that are priced over 100K are not being sold. Same goes with Supras here in the US. Nobody buys them for 70-100K listed price, and most who buy the car buy it for half the listed price. I don't know though. We'll see. The economics is something that is hard to predict.

I better start saving up then. Just hope I'll have enough time. 7 years left :thumbsup: I just need to test drive one though. If it doesn't drive that well, then I won't be interested. I've read stories where people drove their dream car, the Countach, and were utterly dissapointed with it. I don't know if that would be the story with me unless I test it out and get a feel for it. I really should take a vacation to the UK :D

I think GZ is a bit out of touch about old school (pre impoact bumper) 911s . I know a bit about these as I have one.

100K is just over £75K . you can buy one for that but anything with the right numbers and original will go for more than that for sure and if it is a 911S start around 100K for a properly good one . Mint a lot more. And as for the special models ..............

So maybe the 34s are not quite as crazy

I will admit I am really terrible with Volkswagen bugs, I mean Porches :D I know what you mean with the price, but at the end of the day it's a Nissan. Porsche, Ferrari, and Lamborghinis are quite understandable, but a Nissan? Don't get me wrong I love the Nissan brand, but I honestly would not buy it for 100K and I'm a guy who likes old cars. We'll see though. Nobody really knows for sure what will happen with the way economics works and it will be interesting. Nice R32 by the way! ;)

Be prepared for expensive bills on wear and tear items including sensors and electronics. Rust is common on there cars more so at the front suspension towers and sills. Pristine examples will be a lot higher than $50-70k.

All I can say is good luck and hope your pockets are deep. I have no desire on the whole R34 hype. I have a well specced R32 and is good enough for me :)

They are all illegal unless they are the limited edition ones. They are definitely on thin ice and one slip up and game over.

IMO It was more to show that they are working to bring it in and fully legalised and to get contacts for when it is ready. It isn't 'available for puchase' at the moment as it's still not federally legal which is taking years to get completed (although recently they are posting a lot more images of the car and it may be getting close).

As for average price, lets say a white v-spec with 100,000km in 2024, I will guess about 100k USD. Obviously prices will go up for the N1, midnight purple 2 and bayside blue cars, lower km very good condition cars etc. Once the special models arrive a few years after the prices will be very high for low km special model cars.

For example I could see Kristian's low km mint V-Spec II N1 R1 selling for 300-500k USD at auction by 2028-2030.

I am guessing $80-$100K USD for good condition and $100-$120K for low miles, well optioned, most wanted colors, etc...I picked mine up and put it in storage now b/c I don't think I would be able to afford to buy it at future prices. :)

People are paying silly money for Fords and BMWs so why not Nissan. Old Datsuns are already steadily going up for things like 240Zs. I've seen them for £35k plus and this was a pretty common car (more than 1 million sold I think).

If you think that R34 prices are bad then look at what is happening to old Peugeots. A timewarp 205 GTI is worth more now than when new. You probably need £250k+ for a 205 T16...
