Spoke with my dealer today and they received an update from their Zone Rep. He said the 2013 GT-R prices will be confirmed in about a week. He also said the unofficial prices are $95,500 for a Premium Edition and $105,400 for the Black Edition. Said the BE took a huge increase because of the CF Wing. Again, none of this is confirmed, but I wanted to pass it along. I hope these prices are not correct. Not sure I'm willing on dishing out $10,000 more for a BE. Anybody else heard anything??

i havent heard anything official yet but i wouldnt be surprised.... first of this week i think i guessed like 94K for premium and 100K + for the black....but then when i realized the MSRP for the carbon wing is $10,750 i got to thinking it might be a bit more....

if those prices are close the 2013 black edition is more than 14K more than what i paid for mine 7 months ago

Nearly $11k for a wing is ridiculous...doesn't matter to me because it isn't like I'll be buying one. It's just keeping the older models like mine artificially high in price.

wow the 2013 black edition is ridiculously expensive!
if the 2013 BE had that wing and was like only 2-3K more i would be sick... if its something like a 10K bump then hell i couldnt afford it anyways

I will do some digging this week and see if I can come up with some more info on these new rumors

its amazing how the premium edition is now almost the same price as the 2012 black edition, i dont think that carbon fiber wing is worth the 10k+ increase, sorry nissan!

I agree. It is entirely possible that the new list price could turn out to be that high, what twith the financial situation, but given that the upgrades have turned out to be more modest than hinted at, a bigger than expected jump in price would not be all that compelling. Maybe they only plan to sell a handful of BEs stateside this coming model year. I would hope they would try to match demand a bit better after the troubles of this past year.
It does make perfect sense that the price would be Announced in time for the LA Autoshow, which opens next week. I guess we will get the low down in short order. I'll be on an airplane but will be looking to get the scoop here on nagtroc once I land.

If confirmed, we are looking at an $8,420 or 8.7% price increase for the BE and a $3,670 or 4.0% increase for the Premium.

that increase on the BE is around what invoice dealer cost is on the carbon wing.... so again if true nissan is basically directly passing much of the cost of the wing on to the customer...the wing is hand made with a special carbon cloth......... also rearview cam is standard so that another $600 built in somewhere in there... im thinking if true the black edition might be alot more limited than it was on the 12.... as like i said in another thread there were like 50 some SpecV made and just a hand full of egoists made with that wing.... i cant see them ramping up production of it to 400-500 for the US? can you?

with the 2012 BE you got GTR recaro seats that are about 13K standalone MSRP and the specV wheels that are 10K stand alone... ...but its not a direct comparison as you have to figure in subtracting the standard wheels that run about 7K and seats( not sure what they run off the top of my head) from the equation ..so somehow they come up with all that for like 5K more than premium

if you look at it like that and you subtract the standard wing from a cost analysis then add the carbon , even at cost your what 6-7K more thats without accounting for t the standard model year refinements of the 13 itself...

my reasoning could be a it off.... but im just taking that rumored figure and working backwards in my head to how they might have gotten there...

You also have to consider what the yen is trading at.It closed at 77.18 yesterday
That's the first thing I thought about..beat me to it.

Honestly, the price bump on the BE when you factor in the wing and foreign currency exchange is very generous.

The $3,670 is probably worth it due to the transmission upgrades and power increase alone. The BE @ +10k is another story...

some people might be turned off by the bump if they think its attributed to the wing as for some it might not be a big deal....... maybe they should have made the wing like a high end option for either trim just like the $1100 carbon floor mats... (which should be standard on the black i think anyway)

but on the other hand....it looks like they are trying to seperate the two models more maybe to make up from the US not getting some of the special model GTR in japan...i dunno

Thinking from a manufacturer's perspective, maybe the exchange rate and other external issues meant that the BE MSRP for 2013 was going to be bumped up to 100k+ regardless. If so, knowing that would result in a dose of sticker shock and tend to shunt buyers into the Pre, they preemptively decided to make the BE more exclusive in order to retain a following (albeit smaller) for this pricer edition. BE is mainly a cosmetic upgrade, so best way to distinguish from previous is a highly visible external modification, hence the wing. The wing is pricey but there were limited other options. SInce wing is used to spruce up the BE, and prop up its value, that consideration restricted use of same in the Pre. Hence we have the situation that we have.

Pure speculation, but might explain a few things, if (if) the pricing posited is in fact correct.
For what it is worth, I am knocking my head on CF in the hope that Nissan hedged the x-rate effectively and msrp comes in lower. And that those ceramic brakes come in much lower as well. Want, want, want, but unlike uncle Ben, a regular guy can't just print the money.

I will just say if I was thinking about the GTR like I did 3 yrs ago, I wouldn't buy it and couldn't (and can't) afford it.

The car is no longer the bargain it once was.

The only way I'd buy a 2013 GT-R for $100,000 is if it weighed less than 3600 lbs...in addition to all the fine things it already has...

that tears it I think its now cheaper to buy a 2011 and just upgrade the dam thing yourself, the only thing I want on a 2011 that the 2012/13s have is really the LEDs which you can put on aftermarket
