Supra dude, I like your outlook, and believe me, there is no bigger supra fan, from 2000 GT to JZ80 1997 model than me, but I'm not too sure about your figures.
The r34 gtr actually produces about 320 bhp compared to the supras 326. Since the GTR was only officially sold in Japan they must claim max power at 280 powerstroke or 276 bhp.
The skylines weight you claim is also not for the standard model. Actual (dry) standard weight is about 1540 kg.
1/4 mile times vary depending on who runs them, but in a straight shoot out I have seen the skyline (when launched VERY aggressively...serious clutch abuse) run a 13.02, to a supras 13.45.
Don't really know why you think a RWD is better than 4wd, that is why the GTR is actually faster than the supra (massive grip means high RPM clutch dumps).

Having said all that, I vote the Supra! It is more comfortable, just as modifyable and more drivable in city areas, as it has almost no turbo lag. But really you should have said the 1997 model. It featured a VVT inlet system, making it marginally faster than the earlier model.

Personally I think they are both equally over-rated.
If I was forced to drive either I would take the skyline since it tends to snow in Canada.

you are free to believe they are over rated, but they both perform very well for reasonable money, providing much better value than most aussie performance vehicles that we are stuck with.

I don't doubt or deni that. They are both capable machines. They are not the be all and end all of automotive performance as many people make them seem like.

I would take a 280 or 300Z, or corvette over either of those vehicles.
Skyline and Supra are just the playstation generations wet dream.

Yeah, maybe that is true in the states. It certainly isn't where I am. I can tell you though that a 300 zx is definitely not as good as either for speed or comfort. It is very heavy and claustraphobic inside too.

yeah, nsx-r is a wet dream machine alright. but trust me, drive through a city with lots of traffic lights and you will appreciate the sequential turbo system on the supra.
