Nissan's GT-R Owes The Mid4 Supercar A Debt Of Gratitude
In the late 1980s, Nissan developed a mid-engine four-wheel-drive supercar with a twin-turbocharged V6, the Mid4. It was slated for production, and might have set the world of sports cars on fire, beating Acura’s NSX to market and absolutely dominating in the face of the fastest Italians of the day. Sadly the Mid4 was pushed to a footnote of NISMO history when the project was shelved due to the Japanese financial collapse.
Thankfully for Nissan enthusiasts, the project wasn’t a complete bust, as the company used AWD parts developed for the Mid4 project in the 1989 launch of the R32 generation Skyline GT-R, which obviously thrust Nissan to the forefront of international performance standards.
While the world did get something good out of the shelved Mid4 project, I can’t help but be a little bit sad that the royal we never got to experience R32 GT-R level performance in a mid-engine package. This thing must have been an absolute rocketship.
Shame, that. Either way, you can learn a little more about it by watching Sam Collins show you around the car as it sits in Nissan’s collection. It’s short and sweet, maybe a little too short, if I’m honest.

Lamley Daily: Hot Wheels Team Transport JDM Legends Skyline – theLamleyGroup
Model: Hot Wheels Nissan Skyline H/T 2000GT-X
The video feature I did on this set, coming to stores very soon, was maybe the most fun I’ve had since I started the Lamley Channel. Eric and Josh were great, and it was a blast opening the set and placing the cars on their miniature JDM-L diorama. If you haven’t seen this video, here it is...
I think my feelings about this set have been expressed on the video. I am stoked for my friends Eric and Josh, and you can see in the vid – or on their show on Velocity – how cool they are. They have a shop full of goodies, are always passionate about them, and are just plain nice. I love they their logo is back on a Hot Wheels and I hope to see more in the future.
Now it is time to focus on the model, particularly the Skyline. It is the most complete racing Hakosuka Hot Wheels has done, with the racing deco along with front and rear graphics. The painted light covers especially put this one over the top.
Yet even with the upgrades, the model fits beautifully with its other racing counterparts, the First Edition and Japan Historics 1 release.

Preview: Hot Wheels Car Culture Open Track – theLamleyGroup
When I first posted that I had the new Hot Wheels Open Track to feature, I saw a couple of comments saying that Car Culture was getting a little tired. It was only a couple, but that surprised me.
We all like what we like, but Car Culture is in no way tired. In fact, I don’t think it can get tired. Super premium models, 5 per mix, insanely good art, each mix with a different theme. The point of Car Culture is that it CAN’T get locked in a specific theme or pattern, and each mix replicates real cars. I’ve said it before, but to me Car Culture is the best thing Hot Wheels has ever done. And I don’t know how anything can top it.
Sure, some assortments will be more popular than others, but there is always something to like. Open Track is the latest example. Honestly each model is better in person than in the photos, topped by the incredible HKS Skyline. Don’t overlook how complicated – and probably expensive – that deco is for Hot Wheels to do.
Nonetheless, I opened them today. Here is the preview. Look for them in US Targets now and everywhere soon. Photos coming.

Lamley Daily: Hot Wheels Nissan 300ZX – theLamleyGroup
Model: Hot Wheels Nissan 300ZX
Line: 2019 Hot Wheels Basic New Models
This is the year – so far at least – of the R32 Skyline. Since the Hot Wheels 2019 year began, we have soon four R32 releases. Two in basic, one in Fast & Furious, and one in Open Track. One of those releases could very well be my choice for Model of the Year. But it will have to compete with this, the 300ZX.
Hot Wheels did a 300ZX back in the 90’s, when the car took the world by storm. That included me. The print ads for the 300ZX were on my wall as a kid, and I dreamed of owning one. I did have a few toy cars back in those days, and found the Matchbox 300ZX to be a far better example than the Hot Wheels. I especially liked the pearl white World Class release, and held onto it for years, until I donated it to Mattel.
Back then the 300ZX was a must-have current sports car. Now it is truly a classic. And it is in that role that Hot Wheels has rolled out a brand new 300ZX. A tad aftermarket, but the silhouette and classic details are there. HW Designer Dima did this one, and as he pointed out when he previewed the Z32, he was a huge fan as well. It shows in the design.

Nissan EV batteries provide Opus trailer with 7 days of power - Autoblog
The solution in question is called the Nissan ROAM, and it's a little cube full of old lithium-ion battery cells from "first-generation Nissan electric vehicles," which we assume includes the original Nissan Leaf, that hooks up to the Air Opus trailer shown above. This bundle of cells can store up to 700Wh of electricity, and can provide power output up to 1kW. It features a variety of outlets for powering small devices and appliances, and supplies power to the onboard lights and heating.
