Reviews the 2009 Nissan GT-R


Hold on to your hats … senior editor Joe Wiesenfelder calls the much-heralded 2009 Nissan GT-R not fun to drive! Can you believe it? The audacity. The sacrilege. The gall. 

Well, really he’s just talking about the daily driver’s meaning of fun. Those who live and die for track time, on the other hand, might have found the perfect vehicle for their right-footed flights of fancy. Check out his full review of every aspect of the GT-R, from track-day companion to comfortable real-world vehicle.

2009 Nissan GT-R Expert Review

That was a fair review by Joe, but I have to wonder if hes going to get the same grief as Dave T. did on his statments on the S2000 hehe.
Anyhow, there is definitely something to be said for the fun that is had with a car like the Mclaren F1 that can't necessarily be had with a very adept car like the GTR. Thats nothing against the GTR by any means, its just different. This I guess can be attributed to technological advancements. For example if you gave a Nascar driver a choice of cars to drive between the new C.O.T.(car of tomorrow) and an old stipped down moonshine runner on a dirt track. Im pretty sure we would see a whole lot of dust flying around rather quickly.
Anyhow, Im still geeking out over the whole Gran Turismo designed display. Now everytime I hop in my car im just going to look at my normal gauges with such disdain.
