How Many R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R's were Made?



How many R32 GT-R's were made? 

Good question.  We always used GT-R Magazine's information. Every month they have a page near the back(front if you go counter Japanese magazine opening), that has production information.


They list total production R32 GT-R as 43,934. The first production car is listed as BNR32-000051. The last production car is listed as BNR32-314649 (11/7/1994). They also list total registrations by year.

Total registrations

1989-4555
1990-8426
1991-7081
1992-7961
1993-6204
1994-7465
________________
41692 cars

43,934-41692 = 2242 cars not registered. 

Those 2242 cars might have been pre-production, media cars, exported overseas, or race cars.

There were four different models.

1) BNR32-000051 to BNR32-017466

       1a) BNR32-100001 to BNR32-100560 (NISMO)

2) BNR32-212001 to 223300

3) BNR32-300001 to BNR32-314649

Varations on those models.

  • Standard-40390
  • Nismo-560 (only 500 sold to the public)
  • Vspec-1453
  • Vspec II-1303
  • N1-228

43934 cars

But, we come up with some slightly different numbers based on FAST, and another chart.



This one says the first car was BNR32-000054, with the first car of 1990 being BNR32-005083. FAST says the first 1990 car was BNR32-005084.

BNR32-005083 production date 12/1989   KH2 - gunmetal
BNR32-005084 production date 1/1990  KH2 gunmetal
1989 -  chassis numbers 000054 to 005083 = 5030 cars
1990 -  chassis numbers 005084 to 013744 = 7692 cars
1990 - chassis numbers 100001 to 100560 = 560 cars
1990/1991 numbers out of order = 10 cars
1991a-   chassis numbers 013745 to 017467 = 3713 cars(minus 10 for 1990/1991)
1991b-  chassis numbers 212001 to 215653 = 3653 cars
1992 -   chassis numbers 215654 to 223298 = 7645 cars
1993a - chassis numbers 223299 to 223300 = 2 cars (1/93 only)
1993b - chassis numbers 300001 to 306348 = 6348 cars
1994 - chassis numbers 306349 to 314649 = 8300 cars

42,953 cars. If we add in 3 cars from the beginning 000051 to 000054,  we end up with 42,956 cars.

Even accounting for some math errors, a pretty big difference in what GT-R Magazine says 43,934 cars, and chassis numbers say 42,956 cars.  978 missing cars.  The only cars with the unique VIN/chassis number were the NISMO's. The N1, the Vspec, and Vspec II all were within the rest of the chassis numbers for the year.

Then we found GT-R Registry -

Series 1 GT-R = 17942 cars
Series 2 GT-R = 11305 cars
Series 3 GT-R = 14649 cars

Anyone have any insight into the missing numbers? See any errors in our calculations?
7/12/15-fixed an error at the end of 1994
7/12/15-fixed error in 1993
