Achieving 7mins26sec around the Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit, the 911 Turbo's best effort was a thoroughly embarrassing 23 seconds slower. More badly 'stung' was 1 Porsche 911 Turbo can buy 2 Nissan GT-R with a bit of change left over.
    Yeap. Except that the GTR can't do half a dozen of hot laps, the gearbox just can't take it

    There's also dispute of the tyres used.

    Anyway, Ring timing does little for me when I can't even extract 80% of what they can do

    If Audi is luxury european, how can BMW be mid range when a BMW here costs more than Audi, new or preowned? Maybe different market, different positioning.

    Does this also mean the E-Class is mid-range since BMW 5 is mid-range?
    Ian's classification is valid to certain extend but unless if we put in the series involved. Jaguar's X class was also entry saloon & same for Audi as well. While Volvo's S80 is pegged against Bimmer5 & E class which are mid-range Eu. A lot to discuss about but the poll's just for fun.

    I'm just glad that I have my own wheels.

    Sorry but the R35 GTR is a genuine supercar. They've tested it several times and got around the same famed time. The new model is even faster now. The only people who couldn't achieve the same time were the people who lived there, knowing that conditions was everything to a better lap time you would expect them to do even better. Lots of politics regarding the Ring, should read into it if you have the time.
    Enlighten me...

    Don't worry, no dispute about it as a supercar. In fact, it re-wrote the menu for supercars!

    Geez, why are you guys so defensive about the Gtr?

    When we bring it to Sepang, perhaps our weather here is not so kind but quite a no. of R35s have had their gearboxes replaced while those who do 2.30s need to cool off within a couple of hot laps. One of my friend reprogrammed the ECU to over 600bhp but the gearbox can't take it & the 2nd gen model should have this addressed. Unfortunately, the current market will push the price to well over S$350K.....

    I don't think I'm being all that defensive, you quoted 3 times on the negatives of the car I'm just returning some information, it's all good:



    Leave VDC on and stop doing a million launches would help preserve the gearbox better some say.

    Its hot where you are, you probably have to do more to get a good configuration out of any car.

    Haha I love this, yeah the Australian cars isn't much to write home about, spacious though if you have cattles as passengers. You wouldn't believe the bias journalism in Australian motoring magazines where they would always put a Commodore or a Falcon at the top with M3s or AMGs. The British are even worst, they compared a Ford focus with the almighty GTR.
    I Lol'd at that but it's so damn true.

    1996 Ford Falcon in Perth (and it's screwy already... zzz)

    and a 2005 Honda Jazz and 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TSI in Singapore

    Tell me about it! Having owned Land Rovers since I was 17 and ribbed by toyboata drivers during the 90s and early 2000s I know exactly what the Aussie press bias is. With that said, I've also owned a couple of dunnydores and foulcans and they are basic but reasonably solidly built, just not exactly luxurious. The HSV's however are well thought of in the UK as they provide a lot of muscle for little cash when compared to their European counterparts. As the comparison between the Ford Focus and the GTR, that was Top Gear being silly but some of their points are valid. The focus is far more "fun" to drive as it is actually exciting. The GTR is bloody boring to drive at legal speeds and even on the race track it's not exactly heart starting stuff to race compared to other race vehicles that give a seriously good 'thrill' for the dollar. My choice for a fun car for the road? A Caterham or Atom.
