I don't put much stock in individual youtube comparos. But I do rely ALOT on car mag roadcourse laptime comparos using pro race drivers. I've studied many over the last 2+ yrs. The GT-R is all over the GT3. For comparable performance to the GT-R, you must compare the GT2 (at a truly INSANE price), or the Viper ACR or the ZR-1 Vette (both substantially more $ vs the GT-R). And of course, in road/track conditions anything other than perfectly dry and smooth, none of the above can hang near the GT-R.

All GREAT cars. I'm not knocking any of them. But nothing compares to the GT-R performance value, IMO.

As for value, the GT3 RS is incredibly overpriced and the GTR has revealed how outrageously priced these so-called supercars really are. Having owned Porsches in the past, I will admit to the fact that German engineering is as good as it gets. However, the GTR is a breakthrough car that the GT3 only hopes to keep up with. Whether it is in a straight line or on the track, the GTR is one of those cars that sets the performance benchmark.

As for transmission and driveline issues, try taking your GT3to the dragstrip and do 7 - 8 hard runs then lets see what kind of maintenance you will be paying for at your local Porsche dealership. I experienced it in my 996 turbo and quickly realized that these street build race machines are fragile indeed.

So in the end you acquired a beautiful speed machine, however you overpaid for it by giving up a more capable supercar that is more comfortable and has more day to day utility. Imagine a supercar that you can drive and take your kids to school in or take longer drives without having to see chiropractor afterwards.

Good luck and look out for the next GTR hungry for Porsche.
I'm glad you're an expert on the newest generation GT3 RS from your experience in a 996 turbo; LOL. I never said the GT3 RS was faster than the GTR (have yet to race one; they never come out to the track even though I see a different one nearly ever day) but the pleasure of driving this car on the track and street is worth the difference in price to me. I've owned 2 GT3's with other "supercars" in between. I just could never get over the R's exhaust note.

As far as comfort, the GTR has a much stiffer suspension than an GT3 even on the comfort setting. I think that nissan had to employ these extra stiff springs/struts because of the GTR's excessive weight to combat body roll. Besides if I want a comfy ride I climb into my 2008 M5 or my 2011 MB E63 AMG

Again the GTR is a Great car; I'm not bashing it on this thread. Hell I bought one, traded it in and made money on it!

Not clear to me how trading the GTR and paying an additional 92k is "making money" on the deal.

The deal above was not the ultimate deal that transpired. They gave me $14K more than I paid for the GT R originally. Like I said I was into the GT R very cheap.

Well put - with your little collection of high end automobiles, why not keep both?

I won't trade GTR for anything else other than maybe a future NSX/HSV or Lexus LFA.

I would definitely trade my GT-R for an LFA. Then immediately, I'd sell the LFA and buy:
FOUR GT-Rs
or a GT-R PLUS an R8 V10 PLUS an M3 and still have money left over.

Tanner foust may be a good drifter but he is no supercar enthusiast.

Good job and good deal - I used to work for Porsche and they are just 2 completely different vehicles. The GTR is fantastic bang for the buck and a true sleeper supercar. Especially here in southern california where most supercar owners purchase clutchless transmission's not for their raw speed/tech/engineering - but for the fact that they cannot drive stick! So you roll up to a light in a GTR next to some rapper in a murcielago or ferrari and you'll smoke them!! (even if you yourself are not a the best driver)

Sorry for rambling - we are a little slow at work tonight and I personally love the GT3RS, so in conclusion - good choice my friend. And if you know anyone looking for a good deal on a BRAND NEW 2010 black/black GTR with only 73 miles on it... pm me!

Thanks! Jeff

GT3RS in white is beautiful. Saw one over the weekend. We sold the '10 GTR and that 2012 is going to be awesome. Trying to decide what colors to order. Any suggestions?
