i'd take the turbo for the simple fact that it's a porsche and the gtr is a nissan and you pay for what you get. that and it looks so much better

I whould rather had a GTR because I'm not the perfect driver and I don't think I can handle the 997 turbo.

R35 for sure, ok ill admit when it first came out it wasnt that pretty, but just like the enzo the looks grow on you, and now its extremely beautiful. another reason is the interior looks much better than the 911 and i absolutly love all that technology in it..lol i mean hey if you can get a car with just as much power and fun as the rival car for half its price and is awesome looking, then why not? i mean 0-60mph in 3.1 and for 80 grand, id say thats one hell of a deal. porsche kicks ass too though:D

I didn't vote, but here is my answer.

If I get to pick one for free, 100% 997 Turbo. If I have to buy one, 100% GT-R cause I am cheap. :lol:

stupid question...

why don´t we get any testnumbers for the GT-R???????

all we have is sportauto edmunds and BM...

every magazine claims it the beater car but no one comes up with numbers

were are tested 0 > 100km/h, > 160km/h, > 200km/h > 300km/h numbers?

I try to find numbers but nothing pops up at google...so all magazines claiming it a beater car never realy tested it?

Why would you take the cheaper car? It's pointless! I would take the Porsche to sell it and with the money I would buy a used Porsche for like 25-30k and the rest I would utilise to make some more money.

Let's see...

a Nissan GT-R without any options cost's 7.8 Million Yen or so in Japan.

Porsche 911 Turbo cost's about 120'000 Euro (maybe?)
so about 19 Million Yen in Germany.

hmm i think i might take the Nissan GT-R :D

The UK GT-R price is expected to be around £65,000 (90,000 Euros) while the 997 Turbo is £95,000 before adding any expensive Porsche options.

I thought it was starting from $70,000 but not really sure about that.

What is the point of a factory price if no dealer needs to care about it?
Yesterday US press claimed that after asking several Nissan dealers all around in the USA the dealer will ask up to $129,000. Some dealers want to sell the GT-R in a auction to the one who payed the most $.

Porsche could claim their Porsche Turbo is avaible for $50,000 and they know that every Porsche dealer will ask $150,000... that is a funny Nissan marketing gag in my eyes.. claiming a number and no customer gets a car for that price..

It will get interessting to see what Nissan ask for the GT-R in Europe.. in Germany the dealer only get the factory claimed price.. Horst von Saurma said he woul be surprised if Gosh realy sell this car for 80,000Euro in Europe by 2009 as claimed...80,000Euro ~ $120,000

I went for the GT-R based on price and all the techno wizardry in the car. I've driven quite a few 911s (on road and track) and never really liked them, the Cayman S is far superior in my eyes and would walk all over the best 911 if it had the same power and an LSD :roll:

as we have learned today..in the USA the GT-R will be most likely more expansive as the curret Porsche Turbo..

I have chose the Turbo because..... i am a Porsche fan. It was hard to choose because they give me different impressions. Like the Porsche is "nice" or "cool" but the GT-R gives me the Impression "WOW its rare" but Porsche does not have all the technology like paddles but like a stick shift.

997 Turbo. For me it was a no-brainer decision.

Porsche is almost 2x more expensive and price is the only measure that represents every aspect of car altogether.

It's a tough call without driving them back to back. Initial tests of the GT-R look promising, but I haven't seen any direct head to head, both cars on the same track same time comparison yet, so I can't decide by performance.

On that note, the GT-R's focus on being easy to drive and computer controlled is a downside for me, not to mention the heavier weight. So I vote Porsche, for now.
