Too true Asim the 997 was humbled by a Datsun 120Y Friend of mine has the R34 and the R35 on order can't wait for a test drive.
Still recall when he took me for a blast in the R34 T-Spec.

I think it is age related
If I was in my 20's I would go for the GTR over the 911 anyday
If I was in 30's it would be a close call either way.
In my 40's 911 all the way. I would look a plum in a GTR.
If I was in my 50's it would be neither. DB9 or R8 would be the options _________________ Cayman R 2012

With Dave 100%
Just arrived in the 40's......had a look at AM DB9 and test drove the R8. In the end just couldn't see myself in either and went for the 997.
Now may be tempted to get a GTR as a track weapon but will wait and see how their values hold up. _________________ 997 TT Sold

Good point dave, im the wrong side of 30 (half a year left) and i would look like a total plum driving the gtr. Sure its performance is impressive, but i think its a toy for the 20 somethings. Maybe i need a mid life crisis and re-live my 20's????

Surely all that electronic gubbins thats makes it capable of what it can do is a little bit of a cheat, that also detracts from the inter driver machine relationship?
Of course the Turbo has trickery of its own up its sleave, but I was always under the impression the GT-R's and the Evo's of this world had a computer controlling so many systems it wasnt just you driving the car?!?
