There is no way of knowing what the future holds. Even the most well investigated theory is still a guess.
This grey space allows us to imagine new ways that JDM legends from the past can assist us in the future.
The Nissan R34 Skyline was redesigned into a resource-limited, new-tech-styled monster by Instagram's @hugosilvadesigns (worth a follow for automobile aficionados).
Hugo's rendering is based on the 1998 Nissan Skyline R34, which means we're still discussing a car that's 23 years old with more reverence than a lot of automobiles that haven't even been launched yet.
And with good cause.
The R34 platform can't be denied.
There are examples out there altered with 1,000+ horsepower thanks to today's technology.
Call it a cult classic or the coolest car we've ever seen, but one thing is certain: we'd want to see the R34 a hundred years from now with even more technology.
The absence of a typical hood and fenders is noticeable, but the lines and message remain same.
The hood removal reveals some intriguing pipes that appear to feed some sci-fi turbos, as well as a slew of billet-type metal parts that hold everything together.
We can also see some grippy tyres with a low treadwear rating in the design, which indicates that we'll need roads to get where we're going, much to Doctor Brown's chagrin.
Water droplets on the windshield from the exposed tyre slicing through wet roads are as detailed as the details on the exposed tyre slicing through wet roads.
Even if this R34 isn't genuine, there's always hope for the future.
Hugo Silva isn't the first to create futuristic renderings like this R34, but they're definitely adept at it.
This type of work allows the rest of us automotive aficionados to think about what we'll be driving in the near future.
We'll look back on this day and thank Hugo Silva for opening a glimpse into what may be if the R34 of the future comes with twin turbos that allow for a safe and everyday drivable 2,000 horsepower.
