The GTR reminds me of Kobe Bryant. You might not like it but you can't help but respect what it can do.

Let us know how well the e92 m3 holds up after 30+ track days under 100F. I really don't think the M3 will more reliable than the GTR under heavy abuse.

Once bitten, twice shy.

Truth be told, I came from a 2004 STi. I had one of the first ones in the country back in May/June of 2003. I loved that car and it was very tuned from the factory. So tuned in fact that it ran great on the street, but go do 30+ track days in it some of those days in 100 degree heat and I had head gasket failures, turbo failures., You name it, it broke.

That burned me. When it broke this past Feb at VIR, I sold it right after that and ordered the E92

And if I was a betting man, I'd say that these will follow a similar fate. If they actually hold together after repeated abuse I'd be surprised. On the other hand, I know the M cars are ready for the abuse.

And why would the GTR not be ready for the abuse after all the R&D it's been through. Looking at the target group it went against thats beyond the M3, I'd say Nissan went all out on this car. This is their pride and joy right now.

PLus... The only people drooling over it were kids. All the old guys (seasoned racers and veterans I respect) thought my ride was the biz-ness and none of them even seemed to notice the GTR.

I am so glad you didn't buy that ricer...........who the hell would take that over E92 M3............
