    • The 2017 Nissan GTR Nismo is no bargain at $176,585

      Almost $200k for a Nissan GTR? No thanks. If you are someone who just has to have the Nismo version it will cost you $25k more than it did last year. Why is a platform a year older priced $25k higher than where it was previously which already was exorbitant?


      Because Nissan says so. You get some minor changes including a new grille, an improved interior, and a larger touchscreen. Power and torque remain the same at 600 and 481 lb-ft respectively.

      Nissan apparently is bridging the pricing gap between the GTR Nismo and the Porsche 911 Turbo S but the GTR was respected for value and the GTR does not lend itself to price hikes at the end of its lifespan.

      If you are considering this car do yourself a favor and buy a used GTR or just a standard 2017 GTR, tune it, and laugh at anyone dumb enough to waste an extra $100k+ on Nissan's aging robot.

        For the money, unless you're just a die hard Datsun fan no one would ever buy this. Throw pzero trofeo Rs on a 570S so similar money and set better lap times.

        With the updated chassis right around the corner, this makes no sense. At this price point you're most likely cross shopping with the 911 Turbo S and those can easily be had for around the same amount of cash.

        Honestly, it looks really dated to me at this point.

        Also, for that money they can keep it.

        The GTR was ugly when it debuted as a concept car.
        The last time the price made any sense is when it was released for $70k.
        The GTR has been a pathetic joke since year 2.

        I don't know if pathetic joke is fair but the continued price increases for an old platform is stupid.

        I never liked the looks either.

        I had initially planned to trade my 2007 Corvette in for a new 2010 GTR, even though it's always been ugly.
        If they retained the $70k price point, they could have had Corvette sales numbers,
        like they did with the 300ZX.
        Instead, they absolutely destroyed sales with the unjustified price increases.
        If people are going to spend $100k+, they're not going to buy a Nissan.
        And, if people have $100k to spend, they usually are savvy enough that they refuse to pay $100k for a car that was selling brand new for $70k the year before.

        Sorry, but I call the entire handling of the GTR by Nissan a total failure.
