there are some good opinions here

http://www.gtrlife.c...ismo-questions/

but a quick answer is no its not a 100% track car. the overall driving feeling is the same as a standard GTR the biggest daily driver differences would be the harder suspension that trammels a bit on roads and the consideration of the rarity of the car as there is $60K worth of carbon fiber on the car and it would be a ordeal to replace

I agree with this.

it all depends on what your definition of DD is:

20 mile commute that takes you 60 min in traffic? Hell no...

20 mile commute that takes you 10 min in a Nismo? Hell yes!

Personally, living in a very congested west burb of Chicago, there is no way I would DD a Nismo. I hardly DD my Premium.

its not about the driving experience itself as its very similar in most aspects to the normal GTR and those are daily driven all the time. the only driving differences are the suspension and steering feel and those shouldnt affect daily driving too much. but the big thing to consider is about daily driving is where its parked at and commuted to. leaving the car out all day would be an issue for me. its more of a eye catcher or target car. the big carbon wing is just begging for someone to come by and lean on or pull down on or just all the exposed carbon. if you priced the replacement parts its on a whole different level of insane.

so the act of driving the car itself isnt a big deal as its not some track car with no radio A/C ect but with barely 100 cars in existence in the US and a scarcity of replacement parts that would be the main hang up not the driving part

Parts would really be a terrible problem if some backed into it.
Paranoid is one way of how it might feel.

From what I have heard each region has one of each Nismo carbon part on hand now. I drive mine at least once a week to work and I find places to hide it in the parking garage with a lot of room around it or where no one really sees it.

Production for 16 was about 90% of 15 by the rough numbers ive seen

No clue on 2017 but I've heard 3rd hand the NISMO isnt changing with the 17 as the update isnt focused on performance.But I can't substantiate that at all.

All details will be known early November

Head office knows... was just decided this week....no price yet(185-200k cdn.) and only black, silver, and white were available for order....most likely 2016's...October production.
I gave a deposit and ordered silver. That's all I know.

Hopefully there is very low production on this.

420's right -- just got off the phone with my guy, and he said same. Only white, black & silver -- did say there was a possibility for red w/ gold flake, but that he won't know that for 2-3 weeks. Price is $179,900 Cdn but that includes the titanium exhaust! I asked him to repeat that, maybe I misheard him, but he said it again....it is included!
