Somehow, I think that Initial D has a "floating timeline" similar to that of The Simpsons.

It did but trying to place an actual year is pointless since many of the car featured in fourth stage create a huge time gap.

The timeline of Initial D doesn't make any sense with the line of cars being sold at different times. Its better to not put pieces that don't even fit to each other.

My two cents are that Project D takes place only a year after these events (First Stage), meaning that if we take the statement from Legend 1, this is 1997 at the latest, + 1 year until Project D means 1998 If the entirety of Project D takes place over a year, which it didn't as it winter didn't go through until after the series ended, it's mid- 1998 at the end of Final Stage.

Some cars that break the timeline are:
SPOILER

Edit 2: Placing list under spoiler tag because this is taking too much space.

Heh, I think we can all agree that Initial D's timeline makes no sense after you add in that the second last opponent is driving a car that also came out in 2002.

Did everyone watch 5 & Final Stage?
Second to last opponent was an NA1, which can fit the timeline.

Ah my bad, been a while since I saw Fifth Stage, forgot that it was pre-facelift NSX.

Clearly, no more than 1 fuck was given about the timeline of cars.

Initial D didn't care about a timeline. Its like asking Shigeru Miamoto to make a correct Legend of Zelda timeline (which still doesn't make any sense). I can make up Takumi battling against a GT86 or a MKVI Golf GTI

That doesn't change the fact that we, the people still want our timeline.

Who says that all the things you've had seen in Intinal D happened in our Universe ?
Maybe Shūichi Shigeno created a Parallel Universe with an different timeline where all the events take place ?

You guys all seem to be forgetting that the Speed Stars each have a Flux capacitor installed in their cars. Time lines matter not due to their ability to time travel.

The time line is dedinitely screwed . Remember that stage1-stage 5 happened with in a year (corrext me if i am wrong) . Then at the end of stsge 5 takumi sees a new toyota 86 which came out in 2013 so what the hell? Unless as one of the members pointed out, takumi
And ryoske where driving old cars because it is their choice(or what their father owns)

On first stage Episode 2, Keisuke said that the ae86 is a 10 year old junker
On second Stage Episode 4, Seiji also refered to the ae86 as a 10 year old junker.

the ae86 is in produciton from 1983-1988. so let us assume that the race occured in 1998 right about when evo 4 came out.

here is the time line. any of you guys can correct me if I am wrong . I do not want to sound like a trekkie fighting over warp drives etc. etc,

summer 1998 stage 1 and stage 2 happened

Autumn and winter of 1998 , Stage 3 happened

then summer of the following year , project D happened.

they refer to the project as something that will only last a year right. then there are cars such as godfoots r34gtr which game out in 2002, then at the end of the 5th stage, the gt86 came out which was released on 2013.

so the timeline is really screwed. but floating timeline may explain most of it

Sorry for commenting on an old thread, but Takumi's Eight-Six is a 1983 Sprinter Trueno if I'm not mistaken.
Nakazato and Seiji mention that it is a 10-year old car, so doesn't that make First, Second, and Third Stage take place in 1993? (yes, I know Nakazato's R32 is a 1994, but it could have come out that year as a 1994 model)
Assuming the above is true, I believe this makes the Project D arc take place in 1994.

But then again, Initial D's timeline makes no sense, given all the newer cars that have appeared were made after 1994.

For me,i really prefer to think that InitialD takes place in 2001-2002,due to cars on Fourth and Fifth Stage.
And again,not everyone would have an high budget to get an high-class sports car and many would prefer to have a certain old version of the car due to personal and technical motives.

Remember,Nakazato uses an R32 instead of a R34 because he did thought that changing his S13 to the car he got defeated,he would get more powerfull.

Also,the R32 is the most light of the GT- R's,but it has the 308HP stock engine versus the 332HP Engine from the R34.
Remember,GodFoot mentions that he drived an R32,R33 and the R34,so you wouldn't think that is strange that Nakazato never used an updated version of the GT-R?

Also about the technical part,there's lots of character cars who are inside the list:

-Kyoichi drive an EVO3 because it's the most powerful car from the First Generation of the LanEvo(Evo 1-3),also don't you think Kyoichi would have to install again from scratch the Misfiring System and the other parts if he bought a newer LanEvo,and again,you can see the EVO 5-7 on the last stages.
-Bunta's Impreza was the GC8F,made between 98-99,so why Bunta choose the GC if he could get an GD STI.
-Ryosuke's FC3S is last Version Mazda made of the FC(Infini 3),so he could bought it since it would be rare to find one,and he wouldn't never change his car,since as his says on the race between Takumi and Keisuke,"The monster isn't the car,instead it is the pilot".
-Keisuke and Kyoko drives the Series 6 FD,made between 92-95,so why both don't bought the series 7 FD,which was made on 98-02,and had much powerful engine than the series 6?
-Go-Hojo's NSX is the First Gen NSX-R,made 93-95,so why he didn't bought the NSX-R version.2,which used the C32B instead of the C30B?

As someone who works on a real GT-R, this sentence triggers me. The engines are the same (unless you get into actual special models, like Z-Tune or NISMO and such). The only difference between the two horsepower-wise is the base boost setting (R32 ~0.8 bar, R34 ~1.0 bar). Since this is done using only a solenoid in the engine bay and the engine computer's programming, it's utterly trivial to do the same thing on any RB26DETT.

Also I'm sure this thread has already said it, but the correct answer is Shigeno took too long to finish writing the story and kept including newer stuff as he wrote, ignoring the passing of time within the story. So the timeline for Initial D is utterly unrelated to real life and is in fact its own alternate universe version of the 90s where newer cars came out earlier.

Nomake Wan,sorry about the GT-R thing.
I thought the only thing who got updated on newer GT-R's were just Engine Parts.
I didn't thought GT-R had different Turbo Settings,Damn Genki TXRD games made me believe TwinTurbocharged Engines had 0.5 bar of pressure.
But again,R32 has 40kg lesser than R34,but i know you can decrease their weight.
But still,i believe InitialD took place in 2001-2002

You thought wrong, my dude. The engines actually changed the least between models. Each model had a unique interior and brought something different to the table (new rear subframes, active diffs, aero, updated ATTESA, etc etc etc). There were very large changes between the three Skyline GT-Rs in every department that wasn't the powertrain.

Yeah, no. If you remove the boost solenoid from the equation completely, the wastegate pressure for the RB26DETT is somewhere around 0.7 bar. The solenoid is programmed to increase that by a specific amount and allow the boost to build a little faster than it otherwise would. The design and settings for said solenoid are what changed the power outputs between models, not modifications to the engine itself.

Unless you mean you thought all twin-turbocharged engines in the world run 0.5 bar of boost pressure, which would be...silly. blink.gif
