Bashing??The first half of the sentence said the performance is amazing! And for full context I have been the GM of a Nissan Dealership for 13 years so I know everything about that car. If you compare the GTR interior to basically any high end car over a 100k it will come up dead last. No suede roof, no leather dash, no alcantara anywhere, electronics out of the same parts bin of the rest of the line up. Though the gtr can equal a tts in most performance categories there is a reason the Porsche is 100k more, Nissan put all there dollars into the hardware of the car, so the gtr has the ability to punch above its weight, but again on the interior nothing special at all. IF I wanted the fastest car for sure it would be a modded gtr. If a well informed opinion is bashing then i don't know what to tell you.

Calling something "absolute junk" is NOT really accurate, don't you think?

If "junk" isn't "trash" then I don't know what is...

It's a supercar in my mind in idea and execution.

It's essentially trying to be a 'green' supercar and succeeds but with compromises.

It performs nearly as well as an F40 and while a corvette GS or M2 does this as well the car is still rarish, sourced from F1 technology, and looks the role.

The other problem is the other modern supercars like the ZR1 and up will utterly outperform it.

Still, it goes really fast and gets 100mpg or w.e.

Weird, slowest supercar yes, but it's still there.
