This is very weird logic to me, so it's pure performance and value, nothing else? Seems like I could make that logic work against the GT-R with a handful of cars...adding 50k-70k in mods to just about any car I could smoke a GT-R all day long.

Very odd...

I figure that GT-R actually outperforms that car and newer 911s cost much more so the GT-R is still the best value.
Best value, seems like the common trend with the GT-R. Did you test drive any p cars vs. the gtr? I just wonder about the GT-R going heads up against a GT3Rs or Turbo(s) in terms of ownership, most I've read about people who drives these p cars cars, they wish to drive nothing else, whereas with the GT-R, there seems to be quite a bit of turnover.
Prestige and comfort are two important factors for people with the kind of money to spend on cars in the 100k range. Porsches are also damn good if money is no object.
