It’s a sad day for automotive fans who dreamt of a day they would see the Nissan Skyline name revived for the U.S. market.

As of July 12, Ford has the trademark rights to the “Skyline” name under the category of “Motor and land vehicles, namely, SUVs, trucks, and automobiles.” Autoblog speculates that they could either be releasing a new model or are just straight up camping on the name.

The name has beginnings as early as the ‘60 and is closely associated with Nissan’s iconic lineage of GT-R sports cars.
