That is if you measure speed a quarter mile at a time. I'd rather take lap times. The GT-R runs closer to the GT2 RS lap times than the turbo S

Nurburgring lap times:
7:41.23 Porsche 911 Turbo S
7:24.22 Nissan GT-R (2011)
7:24 Porsche 911 GT2 RS

That has to be the single dumbest post I have ever read on a performance car forum. I guess people that are so superficial that they'll pay thousands for a purse would be too insecure to buy a performance car based solely on......performance.

If that's your problem, you can buy a BMW key fob from ebay for $22.

what a joke. possibly the dumbest thing I've ever heard. if you need a key to get you service, then you're a joke. that's like all the people saying that you'd pick up more girls in an M3. if you really need a car to pick up girls, then something is wrong with you...

but, to amuse myself, you like my keys? (the keychain was obviously a gift and done to be obnoxious):



sounds like you'd drop your fobby panties.

plus, if you're showing off that you drive a 3-series (Linda has a 335i)... give me a break.

He asked to be talked out of it so I tried my best.

But for my true opinion.... While it may be one of the quicker cars out it has absolutely no appeal to me. If you want one, more power to you but the bottom line is when I Test drove I was not sold on the entire package.

Wonderful speed excellent handling but thats where it stopped. I felt no passion from the car. I cant get with that. So if its faster than all of my cars I can deal with it. I've spent more on slower cars and it's certainly a choice I've made and slept well after making.

It's not an /// M3! No really, don't think the interior is laid out as well as the M3, and the on-board screen/info center just "doesn't fit." Exterior styling is per individual taste. However, the power is great! - IMHO. But, get what YOU like!

That was your best? Two absurdly subjective reasons, sound and looks.
So those rank higher than acceleration and handling?

that's correct. turbo cannot match the gtr track time even though it is 500lbs lighter. GTR is amazing.

I don't think you are following correctly because handling and acceleration are two things I would have mentioned if he wanted to be talked into the GTR not out of it....

"talk me out of a gtr"

1. It's a Nissan. It's a fucking NISSAN.

2. There are ugly Nissan logos on the car to remind you it's a fucking NISSAN

3. It's a shitty Nissan

4. The over the top ugly styling will get you attention and when you get curious questions, u must answer it's a Nissan.

5. The only people who really like the car are self proclaimed "enthusiasts" and people who don't know your driving a Nissan.

6. The car looks like a cereal box with wheels and Nissan logos everywhere.

7. When your over 30 years old and are making a good living for yourself and after the initial excitement of owning a car with spectacular performance figures wears off, you start thinking that you dropped 90k on a fucking NISSAN that's ugly as hell and cheap looking. That's why your neighbors roll their eyes when they see you driving by.

8. I'm sorry but I can't reiterate this enough but it's a fucking Nissan.

9. It's a piece of crap with retarded body panels and Nissan logos

10. You will have plenty of friends, unfortunately they will all be 8-24 years old that are saving their pennies for a Nissan 370z, another shitty car with ugly Nissan logos.

I know what's coming.... I'm a badge whore. Lol. Atleast the badges on my cars are nice looking, even my Toyota prius has nicer badges than a Nissan gtr. Not like the ugly ass Nissan logos lolll

Well, the good news is if you see one on the street or track, you won't be able to see the Nissan logos for long as they will quickly fade away from view as the GTR leaves you behind in a cloud of dust

Yeah and if a tree falls in a forest....

The car is fast no doubt, but it's not fast enough to lose the Nissan logos stamped onto the trunk and hood.
