I think the fact that the GTR doesn't that the Supra style wing makes it less of a magnet than a Supra.

ah, true.

speaking of GTR and Supra, Super Street's cover has a 570hp GTR. I thought "aww, 570 hp? that's cute!" Aren't these cars pretty routinely making 1000+ like Supras?

Getting to 570hp on a GTR can probably be done by doing all bolt-on mods (exhaust, downpipe, intake, and intercooler) or just turn up the boost. That 2JZTE Supra engine is essentially bullet proof if you properly build it out. I had one of the first twin t3/t4 set-ups on mine and on stock injectors I was putting down down about 450hp to the rear wheel at 1.1 bars (15-16 psi). The big problem and why I didn't go higher on the power is because it suffered serious traction issues above 500hp to the rear tire.

exotic, is how you define it, for the majority of the population, they can't tell the different's between one in the 80's and one today.

this.

A manual transmission with clutch and pressure plate that is electronically controlled and requires no input from driver.

Not an automatic transmission with torque converter that can be shifted by driver input.

Bumpin the thread as it's coming time to make decision. I'm gonna be putting up my E92 M3 for sale next month (waiting to get the title from PenFed) and the replacement is going to either be a GTR (2011+) or GT3 (2010+...997.2 version). I got a daily beater that I drive to work, so the GTR/GT3 will be a garage queen/track duty/weekend car.
