Brian O’Connor cars in the Fast & Furious franchise were numerous and all of Brian’s cars meant something to the character. The Fast Saga originally focused on street racing before branching out to high-stakes global conflicts. Paul Walker portrayed Brian since 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, appearing in six films until Walker’s tragic death in 2013. Like every character across the franchise, he takes the wheel of multiple engines. Unlike Dominic Toretto, who prefers American muscle cars, Brian always chose imports shown in the various Paul Walker Fast and Furious cars. He and Dom used to bicker about the two kinds of vehicles, which became a running joke in the series.
Brian wasn’t initially the best driver, but after teaming up with Dom, the skills obviously rubbed off. Brian went on to become one of the most talented drivers of the bunch and never backed down when it came to going toe-to-toe with Dom. Over Brian’s history in the Fast & Furious movies, the character has gotten behind the wheel of some pretty wild rides. The style of the vehicle correlated with the styles of the times with flashy paint jobs and customizations. As time went on, the trends changed, but Brian never let go of his love of imports.
1994 Toyota Supra Mark IV
Of all of Brian’s cars, his first signature vehicle came in the form of a Toyota Supra. After destroying the Mitsubishi Eclipse, he needed a vehicle to repay Dom with, so he found a rusted Supra in a junkyard. Dom’s crew then fixed it up, and Brian used it in key moments for the rest of The Fast and the Furious. He and Mia used the Supra to rescue Vince during a heist gone wrong. Brian then used the orange Supra to chase Jesse’s killers and with one final drag race with Dom before letting him go free with the keys to the car.
1999 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R
Brian first acquired the Nissan Skyline in The Turbo Charged Prelude set before 2 Fast 2 Furious. He bought it from a dealership before customizing it to his liking. He then drove it to Miami and wound up racing the car in an event hosted by Tej. Of all of Brian’s cars, the Skyline ended up getting impounded when Brian was detained by a U.S. Customs agent.
2009 Subaru Impreza WRX STi GH
After the destruction of Brian’s Skyline earlier in Fast & Furious, Dom gave him a replacement car in the 2009 Subaru Impreza. The car was taken from an impound lot and used for the rest of the film. Brian used it to drive to Mexico in search of Arturo Brago, an infamous drug lord. After apprehending him, Dom and Brian tried to deliver Braga back to the U.S., but the Impreza got totaled in the process, the fate of most, if not all of Brian’s cars.
2010 Dodge Charger SRT-8
Of all of Brian’s cars, he rarely drove muscle cars, but it was deemed necessary in Fast Five during the vault heist. He and Dom each drove reinforced matte black Dodge Charger SRT-8 vehicles to pull the giant vault out of the Brazilian police station. Dom’s Charger was used to stop the men in pursuit of the vault, but Brian’s car remained intact.
2012 Subaru Impreza WRX STi GH
As part of Ramsey’s rescue attempt in Furious 7, Dom, Brian, and the rest of the crew were required to drive out of the back of a plane and parachute their cars to intercept the armored transport. Brian used a blue Subaru Impreza during the chase but was eventually forced to abandon the car when it sustained too much damage.
1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34
Though Brian didn’t directly appear in F9, his existence in The Fast Saga was still confirmed with the appearance of the character’s blue 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34. At the end of the movie, Mia informed Dom that the last guest would be arriving at dinner shortly. Viewers then see a blue Nissan speeding into the driveway of the Toretto home. Considering the most famous of all of Brian’s cars were multiple Nissan GT-Rs, including one almost identical to the one in F9, the person behind the wheel was undoubtedly Brian.

Brian Appeared In Fast X Flashbacks
No new Brian O’Connor’s cars appeared in the latest franchise entry but Brian did have a presence in Fast X. Since Paul Walker’s tragic death, the Fast and Furious franchise has kept Brian off-screen by suggesting the character has given up his dangerous life of crime and espionage in order to raise his family with Mia. This trend continues in Fast X along with a brief return for Brian in a flashback sequence. As Fast X opens with Dante Reyes’s origins which go back to Fast Five, Brian is shown working alongside Dom to steal the vault containing Dante’s father’s fortune.
Though it is a brief flashback, it is a reminder that Brian was an integral part of this mission and it is unlikely that Dante would overlook that fact. It is revealed that Brian and Mia are safe during the events of this movie as they go into hiding when Dante begins targeting the team. However, it is unclear how safe they will be as Dante’s revenge mission continues in Fast 11. It has been promised that Brian will be featured in the Fast and Furious franchise before it concludes. It is unclear in what capacity that will happen but it seems likely it will involve him coming out of hiding.
