I'm loving this car since getting it a few weeks ago. I took it up to Jacksonville (from central Florida) for a meeting yesterday and (aside from tire noise), the car is fantastic on the highway.
The GT-R replaced my E55 at our house in Florida and I'm planning on selling my Viper and a few other cars over the next few months and getting something different for my house in New Jersey. I have been considering all kinds of things, including Ferraris, 911 Turbos, etc.. I keep coming back to wanting a 2-door, four seater since we have kids. A few days ago, a friend who owns a tinting and detailing shop called to let me know a long-time client of his brought in a 612 Scaglietti. He and I had spoken about them a few weeks before and he knew I'd want to check out the car. I stopped by his shop. What a beautiful car...but big and slow. Out of the box, they are a mid-12 second car at best and weigh over 4300 lbs. I honestly don't think I'd be happy in something like that...especially wondering if every kid in a 5.0 Mustang or dad's 'Vette is going to whoop up on me at the next traffic light. Really...the only thing close is the 911 Turbo, but the back seats are a joke and I honestly don't like the looks of the 911's.
Sooo...an offhanded comment by my wife has me considering a second GT-R. I'd wait out a '13 blue pearl BE.
Am I being unoriginal?

Hell, I've considered it as well. I don't think you're being unoriginal. You're being realistic.

God I am so jealous of you three. On a serisous note if I could afford two you better believe I would do it!

One day my friend! I'm down to petition a raise for you guys if it comes down to it! You're passion for the company and cars in generally shouldn't go unrewarded!

That's kind of what I'm wondering. It might be nice to have something else to change it up a bit. I can always move cars between houses.
But seriously, other than the 911 Turbo, there's nothing out there with the performance of the GT-R and 4-seats (even if they are small).

hahaha thank you, I truly love what I do though and you can't put a price on that


I get to live vicariously through just about every GT-R owner that comes through here so in spirit I own hundreds.

Not a bad choice at all... I would personally go Gillys Route or perhaps a TTG. But, I don't need the rear seats..

I was in a similar situation about a year ago, but ended up deciding I couldn't justify two toys. Ended up trading in my GT-R and bought a 612. Now I miss the GT-R and am planning on adding one back. There are some things I really love about the 612 (unique, rear wheel drive, V-12, sound), but I immediately missed the GT-R's speed. I would say that I had 50 times more people looking to race the GT-R than the 612, as it solicits a completely different reaction from people.

I actually thought about a 2013 Shelby GT500 also. 650HP and 600 ft lbs.

Coming from a former 04 Cobra owner and GT500 owner, I would say its more of a muscle car. Its a whole lot of fun, and not bad to daily drive, the shifting is easy (well my 04 cobra had a twin disc clutch, and then went automatic), The handling is more crude, and the interiors are much nicer than you expect for a Ford. And point it straight, put the right pedal to the floor and it always put a smile on my face.
