About the 2020 Nissan GT-R NISMO
The 2020 GT-R NISMO is more GT-R than ever before – it's the ultimate performance super sports car that provides an exhilarating experience for virtually everyone. New race-proven turbochargers, improved gearbox shift control, lighter components, reduced overall mass and upgrades to the brakes, wheels and tires contribute to a 2.5-second reduction in lap time around Nissan's development track. There's also an improvement of the GT-R's inherent high-speed stability, even at speeds of up to 186 mph.

The 2020 GT-R NISMO's VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin turbo V6 remains the heart of the GT-R's drivetrain and is rated at 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque3. Each is handcrafted by its own takumi technician. For 2020, the GT-R NISMO features an exclusive turbocharger design – direct from the GT-R GT3 race car – with a modified turbine shape and fewer blades. This optimizes the flow rate and enhances the acceleration response by 20%, without a loss of horsepower.
About the 2020 GT-R Track Edition
While in previous years the GT-R Track Edition featured the 565-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 24-valve twin-turbocharged engine from the GT-R Premium grade, for 2020 the engine is borrowed from the famed GT-R NISMO and offers a full 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque3.

In addition to the engine, key GT-R Track Edition performance enhancements (versus the GT-R Premium) include additional adhesive bonding of the body structure, a NISMO-tuned 4-wheel independent suspension, reduced weight and additional roll stiffness, wide 20-inch NISMO forged aluminum-alloy wheels with NISMO-spec tires and dry carbon-fiber rear spoiler4. Inside, the Track Edition interior includes a unique red and black color treatment with high-grip, motorsports-inspired Recaro® seats.
About the 2020 GT-R Premium and 
All 2020 GT-R Premium grade models include a revised turbocharger tuning, burnished exhaust tips, new RAYS 20-inch forged aluminum-alloy wheel design, new headlight inner color and available "Hai Gray" premium interior with hand-stitched semi-aniline appointments. The 2020 GT-R Premium models' performance is rooted in a hand-assembled twin-turbo VR38DETT 3.8-liter V6 engine rated at 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. A Titanium exhaust system is standard, along with Active Noise Cancellation and Active Sound Enhancement technologies.

About the GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition
The special GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition is available in three heritage-era, two-tone exterior color combinations meant to represent the GT-R's liveries from the Japan GP series. Bayside (Wangan), a four-coat, double-heat treatment process ensures a vivid blue with striking highlights and deep shadows, is contrasted with white racing stripes. Blue accents on the wheel spokes are among several fine touches made to celebrate the GT-R's milestone. Pearl White with red stripes and Super Silver with white stripes round out the 50th Anniversary liveries.

Inside the GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition is a special gray interior color scheme, which gives the cabin a sense of luxury, reminiscent of the atmosphere of the night sky after the twilight hour (the color is also available on select other 2020 GT-R models). Additional 50th anniversary features include unique steering wheel and shift knob trim, special embossed seats, an Alcantara® headliner with unique stitching, Alcantara®-wrapped sunvisors, and more.

Texas Ed I already like you lol

That C8 is gonna be the laughing stock of the decade, in context with the hype of course.
The Zr1 version will prob. be decent just like with the C6 (best one so far) and C7 (useless)

One thing I have never seen is a Corvette with half a decent (factory) paintjob.
Now it's controversial to call this out since Nissan doesn't offer really good paint jobs either.
The bayside blue must be done in some special procedure it looks much better and denser (more depth) than all the other colors.
I am amazed how high of a quality the 50th Anniversay is for 120k. P4P prob. the best car you can buy in general atm.

lmmfao...time will tell...simple don't buy one...

Here's my opinion:

 

Manufacturers are always trying to get the most money for their product... No surprise there.  That is why they call it MSRP Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price.

 

Where am I going with this?  Culver City Nissan, aka, Nissani Bros. Nissan is giving a $12,045.00 discount on their Premium GTRs with upgraded leather interior.

 

This discount puts their Black GTR at $108K and White GTR at $109K before taxes.

 

Other dealers are discounting $4k right off the bat. on their Premiums.

 

I think this proves that for those Nissan dealerships that don't need the novelty of having a GTR in their showroom floor to sell the rest of the fleet, they understand that GTRs are overpriced and generally require a good discount to sell.

 

So, for those of us in the market for a new GTR, patience and timing will be key in getting into our next Japanese ICBM... Oh yeah, and as for performance, $5K will give you a GTR with 600hp at the wheel and great acceleration to harass those other supercars ;) 

 

Now, don't get me wrong, I do think GTRs are extremely overpriced and are only bought by the few who truly love the car and can afford it.
 

2 cents.

$210k.. Not seeing what the marketing team sees I guess.

 

And with all the turmoil w/ Ghosn/Renault not seeing the resources for an R36 anytime soon. However, whoever buys these are financing our hopes and dreams to see it whenever that time comes--so thanks guys.

There is a special aspect of the GT-R that will always make them sell.... even if overpriced and even if the competition has equaled or surpassed it.... the want. I grew up drooling over the Supra and Skylines. My next-door neighbor had a early 90s twin turbo Supta. He would let me wash and wax it and then I was allowed to drive it for the day!!! It was the most delightful weekend, every other weekend in the spring, summer and fall for me. So now finally in my late 40s when I can afford a car like this I don’t even care about its performance compared to others. A majority of it is my enthusiasm for the car and my passion for the car. Heck, had Toyota come out with a Supra that was a good successor to the previous one I may have considered a Supra.... but they didn’t lol... But, there are not many cars left that elicit a nostalgic sensation like the GT-R does. So with Acura having come out with a hybrid version of the NSX, which nobody in my age range wants... We want a screaming twin turbo engine... And with the Toyota Supra not being very impressive at all and the NSX not too appealing..... What does that leave for people in my age range that want a nostalgic JDM car??? You got it... A GT-R Keep in mind also. That you can buy a GTR, throw 40,000 or 50,000 at it and have yourself a sick, high horsepower, relatively reliable car that will beat the crap out of almost anything... not too many cars out there have the potential to be modded so well :) Yeah I probably overpaid for my MY19 Nismo... But I don’t care lol... I’m smiling ear to ear every time I look at that car in the garage or drive it :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Sorry but I have to disagree with certain of your points. Yes I agree that the car is high priced. It is well engineered and good quality, however it is lacking many costly electronic features that other high priced cars have such as heads up display, memory seats, and various engine and mechanical monitoring functions. I had an Audi R8 that was so complicated it practically required me to have a PHD to figure it out.  The BMW M5 is a great car but very expensive. BMW's are among the fastest depreciating cars out there. My AMG C63s was $90k. The Corvette C8 is cheap, somewhere around $60k and a piece of junk in my opinion.  So, when you state there are better options out there, I have to agree, however those better options can be almost double the price of the GTR Premium. Just my .02

I agree the GT-R is very well engineered and the overall quality is good. It's legendary. I've also previously owned two of them ('09 & '14). Nissan has also been good about making incremental changes to every single model year. But with that comes price increases. Whereas the '09 GT-R could be had for $70K, now the list price is $115K. In 10 years, the car has increased in price $45K. The problem is, while its performance is still among the upper tier of high performance cars, the GT-R isn't the performance benchmark and value it once was, and many "lesser" cars have caught up to it. And, as you stated, it lacks some features long considered standard on competing vehicles. It is not a Grand Tourer, but for what the GT-R costs now, lacking industry standard technological features and refinements is inexcusable. It could be overlooked if the GT-R was still among the highest performance vehicles out there, but it's not anymore.

 

I like your remark about the new BMW M5 which out accelerates and is faster than the GT-R. And it's four doors. But yes, very expensive, and worse, for me, it just looks like the sea of other BWM's out there. Blah. And you are right on about how quickly the MB AMG's depreciate. Even if you buy a used one, say, five MY old, at a good discount, it will still continue to plummet in value like a rock. As to your personal opinion that the Corvette C8 is junk, I'm not going to argue with you on that because that's your personal opinion, whatever you based that on. I certainly don't think it's junk, and I'm excited to say I have an allocation for a C8 convertible and am really excited about it. The same way I was when I put that order in back in 2008 for my '09 GT-R. Godzilla certainly made its mark in the automotive industry and was an unparalleled performance bargain (just as the C8 will be). But the GT-R has had it's day in the son and it's time for technology to move on. I have been hoping the past few years that Nissan would produce the next evolution in the GT-R, the R36, but it doesn't appear that's going to happen, or happen anytime soon. I could be wrong and hope I am. The GT-R made such a tremendous impact when the R35 first came out, I think Nissan realizes it's now twice as hard to make the same impact. How do you compete against glorified golf carts that can go 0-60 in 1.9 seconds? I know I'll get flamed for that statement, but I don't dispute the technological marvel the electric vehicles have become. But they just don't stir any passions within me, as cars like the GT-R do.

My GTR is the first one I have owned and I enjoy owning it tremendously. I like the relative rarity that one seldom sees these cars on the road, the horsepower and torque, and the four wheel drive. Yes it does lack some technological features such as memory functions, etc. and I don't understand Nissan's thought process on this. I have owned many cars and a few with superior comfort and technology (i.e. Audi R8 and AMG C63s) but performance of the GTR and the ease of tuning, fbo's, etc. trumps some of the others such as the AMG that I owned. The high price of the GTR might be hard for some to justify and I tend to agree on one hand but on the other hand it is the high price that maintains the "seldom seen on the roadway" situation, and I believe retains this car's very low depreciation. There is a reason why folks stare at the car, take photo's of it with their cell phones and ooh and ahh about the car. If the car was inexpensive one would see them constantly on the roadway like we do the Mustangs and I would not be owning one if that were the case. Bottom line I like my GTR a lot and find myself driving it much more than my R8.   

 

I had a BMW M4 up until a couple of years ago. It was tuned and was a great car but not as fast as my GTR. If the M5 were a coupe I would have interest in owning one but sedans just don't do it for me. I have seen the stats on the M5 and have seen it drag on youtube. It has great performance.

 

I was too harsh when I said the C8 was junk. I apologize for that remark. I have owned 5 Corvettes over the years with the most recent a 2019 Z06 which I traded off a few months ago for an R8. My C7 looked good but the overall quality was inferior to those found in my AMG, BMW, and Audi.

 

I agree with you on the electric cars. I just can't get my head around driving an electric car. I love burning fuel, hearing a nice exhaust note and having the ability to tune the engine. I have no plans to ever own one before I leave this earth. At my age I'll likely croak before the electrics have take over.

The rarity of the GT-R is one of the main reasons I enjoyed owning one, and regret seeing any on a regular basis. That, and every time I got behind the wheel of a GT-R, I felt I owned the road in front of me. There are several cars that have either caught up with the GT-R in performance, or close to it, but they are just outright boring looking cars, or they are a dime a dozen (Corvettes, Camaros, Mustangs, BMWs, MBs, others). I know I'm going against that with the C8 convertible I have on order, but I love the way it's going to look, perform, and function as my DD - the complete package.

Do you trade cars every 6 months? Seems like you always have something new

Ha-ha, yes, cars have been a vice of mine in terms of turnover within the past five years. I will have owned my Cadillac ATS-V Championship Edition probably a year-and-a-half when my C8 Corvette allocation comes up. Then I should be stable for a while ("No, really, I mean it this time!").

i need me a nismo. for sure 

Any info on Nissan offering incentive on 2020s  I'm seeing prices from 5k thru10k off  msrp on 50th anniversary packages?

If this virus continues damaging the economy we could still $30k incentives again like we did for the 2015s. GTRs werent selling, imagine now with this virus.

Culver City, CA has a Black Premium with an MSRP of $120K and a $10K+ discount.

I've been tracking prices on the 2019s and 2020s for the last 14mo. and I can tell you that Nissan dealerships are not discounting that much and still treat these cars like a pink unicorn despite there being close to 100 of them in U.S. (according to CarGurus)

 

This Corona Virus market crash made me lose a considerable amount of money, which is making me be more reluctant to drop $120K on an outdated Nissan supercar wannabe.  Don't get me wrong, I love the car, but the dealers are just waiting for suckers to pay MSRP; and I cannot compete with stupid.

 

A few others I've been tracking:

2015 Nismo w/ 4k mi. for $125k (Rusnak of Thousand Oaks)

2020 Premium 0. mi. for $110K  (Nissan of Irvine)

 

If this virus continues damaging the economy we could still $30k incentives again like we did for the 2015s. GTRs werent selling, imagine now with this virus.

I wish you were right.  Unfortunately, I've noticed that most Nissan dealerships don't have GTRs on their dealerships to sell them.  They have them there as a rarity to strike conversations or attract on lookers.  If the opportunity arises where they have someone willing to pay MSRP, they'll definitely won't let it go to waste.  But at the end of the day, the GTR is not Nissans #1 selling car and dealers don't depend on their sales numbers to keep the lights on. 

 

Sorry all if this sounds like a rant...  It's probably this cabin fever getting to me ;)

Debating if I should sell my 2017 STI for a 2020 premium gtr ... hmmmm .. 

 

Anyone use Costco Auto's program to purchase a gtr ?

I can agree with what you guys are saying but I think the electric car still has something to offer. That's why I decided to get both.  I have a feeling I will end up driving the GTR way more than the Tesla.  The tesla is a good daily driver and has convenience features that the GTR lacks. If my wife wants to wait in the car while I walk into a store, she can watch netflix on the teslas screen.

Contributing a real post is too much effort for you?

What are you trying to sell?

Yep, got to get that post count past 25! (-_-)

I'll take a GTR Premium and ship it to the legendary Smoky Nagata and have him and his team at Top Secret have a go at it!!!
