thank you as always for making these. Added a front page article as it really is interesting to look at the drastic change in price in this way

that NISMO line takes a pretty steep upward hike on paper
I agree and the reasonable question is whether it is worth that price based on performance and upgrades from MY15?

There aren't any performance upgrades. The suspension has been changed but its more for the road. Doesn't mean it won't perform as well but I wouldn't say it's an upgrade. If the car had 625-630hp I would day that it has upgraded performance

anyone done this on any of the "comparable" models of competition? I always see this argument and even journalists use it about how the GTR is no longer the bargain it once was and I always wondered why...is it because its a Nissan? Let's be honest, in 2008 $70K was a lot of money so it was by no means "priced for the masses". The Audi R8 was $109K in 2008 and the 911 Turbo was $127K. Now granted over the life, other manufacturers have caught up performance wise in certain areas because OF the GTRs abilities but besides the interior I think the GTR went the other way in trying to support the GT part of the car instead of turning it into more of a race car (that's what the NISMO was for) yet from a pricing stand point, when I do the math without a lot of the other variables but just based on MSRP...both the 911 Turbo and the GTR have price gapped over the years with the GTR being right around 35% diff between them and both rising costs right around the avg of 25% (GTR little more than the 911)

Now add to both the 911 turbo that is BASE priced, as with Audi....which are NOT the true perfornace models (Turbo S with chrono and Audi V10) so I'm not trying to start a mathematical argument just wanted to point out that the whole verbiage around its not the "bargain" it once was is really a bit misleading...it was never a "bargain" it was just cheaper than its rivals....and it still is by more or less the same gap...ALL cars have gone up..i mean the 2008 Z06 was MSRP of $79.5... todays its $105K with the Z07 and ceramics to make the comparison even

Don't get me wrong this is nothing at all against this post, I love numbers and this is great information..i think it's more about the false narrative.. the car still runs 1/10 of a second of cars that still cost 30% more than it does..yes its aging..its not the destructive force because its not "beating" its rivals any longer... but then again I can drop $10K, ($120K now) bump it to over 700 HP and call it a day... on both of those models that are currently ahead of it...but are also optioned out at over $200K....just some thoughts

My Question to all is im 23 years old i make 8k a month steady can make more if i choose too but will be more difficult work how much does it cost maintenance/insurance wise to take care of a GTR
First, welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy you enjoy your stay.

At your age, expect some uncomfortable insurance quotes. Maintenance will vary depending on use. For instance will this be daily driver, a weekend warrior, or a track terror? Each has a unique subset of expenses and there have been several threads over the years that describe/debate the respective costs for each. Perform a forum search for 'maintenance costs' to find them.
