Also Known As: Nissan Skyline (Japan)
Years Available: 2003-present
Why It Didn't Suck: Nissan's luxury brand, Inifiti, like Toyota's luxe off-shoot Lexus, was started as one big badge-engineering project. The first car to come to the US was the re-badged Nissan President, known here as the Q45. But our favorite is the G coupe, known in Japan as the Nissan Skyline. Made to compete with BMW's 3 series, it was well balanced, amply powered, and looked great with a new set of wheels.
