An image showing car skins, from top to bottom: Outtie R11, One Ace, The Monster, Mack Daddy. Note that the second car in the last row resembles the already-released Ice Hauler, the last car in the second row is the already-released Wavebreaker, and the second car in the third row seems like a slightly discolored The Monster.

Skins are alternate designs for cars. They are currently unreleased, despite being first announced in 2013. The majority of skins are accessible in the Nitro Type source code. If skins are ever released, it is unclear how they will work or how they will be obtained. In the past, they have talked about how skins would be obtainable by racing with a certain car enough times to "level it up" and obtain its skin [1], or buy the skin directly from the dealership. On the Nitro Type Discord server, Travis shared a gif that suggested that skins would be able to be selected when painting a car. However, skins of cars have been released through seasons. The skins can also be bought in the Shop.

Criticism

Because of how long ago it was first hinted at, many players have shown their disdain for the developers not keeping to their word. Other players do not even want skins to be released both due to their thinking that skins already technically exist in the game (as seen in event car variants) or their opinions that cars are already satisfactory with their current designs.

Released "Skins"

These are examples of cars that were released as a "reskin" or a variant of a previously released car. There are many that look the same with a similar size which can be found around Nitro Type. Many could be obtained in different seasons, or in the dealership for a reasonable price in a short period of time. They can also be re-released in the shop.
