The GT-R is still a bargain when compared to it's competition. The price increases have also been beneficial to early GT-R owners. I hope that the trend continues with price and evolution.

I thought Nissan built the gtr with its early price for the average joe...now days...even the older models are sort of hard to get for the majority of the general population

This is very true, the upside is that our community maintains its maturity as a whole. One of the things that I have been happy about with getting my GT-R was/is the owners tend to be more mature than owners of my past cars such as the EVO, STi, and 300Z. Less kids!

"Maturity"? You must be reading a different forum. The ability to write the check is one difference I see. In a certain way, I've seen a decline in "maturity" as I've moved from (old school) Subaru performance, through Porsches, to here. Often on Rennlist I would shake my head and wonder--did these people just find the Internet?

If the price increase trend continues at this pace, many people will be priced out of the GTR market, they will hit a ceiling where they either reduce the price or number of cars they build.

Thanks to Sinster for this visual look at the where we started and where we are now

note that "2009" indicates the mid year price bump the GTR took in September of 2008 shortly after its introduction
I was going to comment about the 2009 bump. You should include that in the graph.
Several of us have the original MSRP models and several actually did pay MSRP for the very first ones including myself.


EDIT, oh is that what the 2008 represents? I'd have labeled it 2009A & 2009B

It's slightly out of hand as is now for a new car.

yeah thats why I made the notation as sinster had it labeled 2008 and 2009. I didnt want to confuse anyone that there was a 08 model...If he decides to change it I will update the graph

Im with you I paid the "original" MSRP for my 2009

agree 100%. Am on a few different forums and each attracts a certain type, but there's definitely a more " full of themselves" attitude

I believe this pricing model was in place well before the first car ever hit our shores....they needed to come in "cheap" to build the fanfare to what it is today....they couldn't come right in with a 6 digit car....would have never been as successful as it is
