Its not as raw as Vipers of the past meaning SRT had to shove technology into it to keep up with the times and the current ACR is far easier to drive than ACRs of the past which is what made it faster. its no wnoder the new NSX shits on the old one by 4 whole seconds in just casual driving. people hate going faster and if they were running Honda they would've made it slower than C6 Corvettes of the past.

Nips take too long to build shit, to be frank. They're such "perfectionists" that they waste years agonizing over bullshit, trying to figure out how to build the perfect sportscar. People get tired of 7-10 years of teasing before an actual product. Tesla is fucking faster to market. The Germans release new shit every other damn year.

LFA failed because they took ten years to release a car that sounded funny and only built 500 of them. was a joke in motorsports. time would've been better spent on the new Supra.

The NSX shouldn't even be compared because its full production and is going to exist for at least 10 years with plans to go fully electric. in short, Honda spent their time and moeny on a car they wanted to be their flagship and Toyota just jerked themselves off and got nothing out of it.

I've never seen so much COPE at one time, please excuse me.

At LEAST the LFA sounded cool, and didn't have the interior of a Camry. There is no redeeming quality about the NSX. Not the performance, not the looks, not the stock exhaust, not the Accord-level interior.

Doesn't matter if they make it for the next 30 years like the Trabant. I'll believe it when I see it on a fully electric NSX. Until then both the NSX and LFA are cool "japanese one-offs," but also completely outclassed in performance and design by the time they went on sale.

NSX wasn't outperformed by the same cars the LFA was.
didn't cost as much as the LFA.
Is actually worth a damn in motorsports.
Actually has aftermarket support
Actually brought new manufacturing technology to Honda that can be used on future commuters
No other car offers the same HP/fuel economy ratio except the $800,000 918 unlike LFA not even being the only car that sounded funny for 400,000+k *cough*Cerrara GT did it almost a decade earlier for the same money*cough* so it really makes you think who's design got outclassed.

Sure thing buddy...
>power of a van
The power maybe, but the power/weight ratio is a totaly diffent story.
A series 1 Elise for example had 192 hp maximum, less than a toybaru, but its weight was also just about 750 kg.
This results in a good power to weight ratio in a car that outcorners pretty much everything.
>you don't NEED electronic safeties in 500+ HP cars
Indeed, you don`t need that shit, if anything larger heavier cars are so sluggish that they are easier to handle.
Try to get your ass behind the wheel of something like a Elise or Super Seven and push it hard around a track, you will see what I mean.
>never mind the fact that the Vette and 911 all got faster with less power than their previous iterations
They bumped up power quite siginificantly in both cars.
>>20384656
>Are you speaking from experience?
I have driven a lot of cars from different periods, and several of them where MR or RR.
In the end the lightweight roadsters with no nannies where the most fun since they give you a lot of response and don`t limit you.
If you have driven one you just can`t go back.

so you aren't pushing the same power and you don't face the same dangers. a caterham probably has a higher power to weight ratio than your car but still gets cucked on high speed tracks. bump up the caterham's power to that of a C7 Stingray without the technology to keep it planted and it becomes undriveable.
If heavier cars are so sluggish why is a 3400 lb stingray faster than a 3100 lb C6 Z06. why is a 500 HP GT3 faster than a 600+ HP 997 GT2 RS. these cars got faster with less power due to their electronic assist. C7 gen corvette being one of the biggest leaps in technology for the Corvette name since the C4 in 83.

>so you aren't pushing the same power and you don't face the same dangers.
It isn`t the power that kills you, it is the acelleration, the speed you reach and the behaviour in corners that are actualy dangerous.
Driving a loaded semi truck with 500 hp on the highway for example is pretty fucking boring and safe, while driving a MRS with sticky tires and just 103 kW on a tight mountain road is pure adrenaline rush.
Also once you rech speeds above 150-180 km/h it doesn`t matter how fast you go, it just matters how tight the track is in relation to your speed, in case of a crash you are just as dead either way as safety systems can`t handle highspeed crashes at all and energy is mass*velocity^2.
>caterham with corvette tier power
Fastest caterham model has 310 hp stock at 575 kg weight, IIRC it doesn`t have nannies besides ABS.
But it is by no means undriveable, you just need to learn how to controll the throttle.
>why can a heavier car get faster than a lighter car
It depends a lot on the track you are talking about, but compared to the `90s we mostly got better tires and aerodynamics.
In case of Porsche they did a lot of suspension work on the 991 GT3.
>these cars got faster with less power due to their electronic assist
Not realy, the main advantage they had where better tires and better aerodynamics.
>>
>>20384169
Not only is it slower than cars that cost the same but it's slower than $70k cars like the aggressive Mustangs and Camaro 1lE's. That would be fine if it were a drivers car but the thing is a hybrid computer on wheels that looks like a budget McLaren.

That concept was designed by Acura Japan's design head, and it's nearly identical to the production version.

They really are, she was personally at dozens of press events, she's one of the most well known automotive designers now despite having almost no experience and it sounded like Acura was really banking on 'Women in Car Design' to make the car seem new and progressive. They pulled the plug on that little campaign when they realized how badly it was selling and would probably do more damage to the perception of women in automotive design than good, IIRC they haven't even sold a thousand new NSXs yet.

>Driving a loaded semi truck with 500 hp on the highway for example is pretty fucking boring
but driving a 500 HP vette that's 3100 lbs is nothing like your car or a caterham which is why the electronic assist are needed.
>Fastest caterham model has 310 hp stock at 575 kg weight, IIRC it doesn`t have nannies besides ABS.But it is by no means undriveable
because its not even close to 500 HP and still loses to AMG GTSs even with the stickier tires because it lacks the grunt and quickly runs out of steam and with the same power it would be a mess.
>It depends a lot on the track you are talking about
all tracks they were both tested on the GT3/Stingray came out on top. even in the same Era a GTR would beat lighter/and or more powerful AWD cars because it had more electronic assist constantly transfering power around to keep the car stable allowing the drivers to focus on his lines rather than fighting with the car which ironically made it more of a driver's car in the eyes of many than the "raw macho man look at me dramatically burn chunks of my tire off going slower at every corner " super cars. other manufacturs started adding more assist technology and surprise surprise they went faster because of it. an SS 1LE has less sticky tires than a Z28 and less aggressive suspension setup without and spoolvalve dampers and still claps it.

Without electronic assist these new-age super cars would get embarrased by cars with them even on stickier tires. i don't know why you think you see something dozens of manufacturers in the industry don't who have tried the formula only for it to work with flying colours.

Indeed, the Corvette is pretty underpowered compared to the Super Seven.

Also I`m pretty sure someone has LS-swapped a Super Seven by now...
>in the same Era a GTR would beat lighter/and or more powerful AWD cars
Except it didn`t, the Skyline GTR (R-32-R34) never made a faster laptime around the Nordschleife.
>electronic assist constantly transfering power around to keep the car stable
If your suspension setup is good and you know how to drive this isn`t realy an issue.
AWD,MR and RR sometimes even power-understeer, allowing you to steer by throttle.
>Without electronic assist these new-age super cars would get embarrased by cars with them even on stickier tires
Depends a lot on the driver and how decent the car is set up, a driver trained to drive without electronic aids will be faster without them.
Anyway, I don`t buy a car to race, I buy it to have fun.
Traction controll constantly interfering with my driving makes it less fun, plus I had some close calls recently because I was driving a "modern" car limited me in some situations where I wanted to take a corner with lift-off oversteer but I only got ESP turning that into understeer.
It was even worse whan I drove a friends Audi Q2 recently, that torque-vectoring shit and anti-collision makes it handle even worse, as it is not under the direct controll of the driver.
It is also dangerous when ABS doesn`t allow you to lock your wheels in snow.

That V10 is the most disappointing performance engine in decades.

Why would you want that when the snek does everything better.

>>20384666
You forgot, the V10 makes shit for torque has only 9k rpm to boast and makes worse mpgs than a pushrod. Thing can't even safely stay above 7k rpm for very long because the valve springs shit the bed.
There's a reason they never took off in Motorsports.

>>20385189
These days no. Abs has gotten to the point you can go with or without on supercars. Only reason youd want abs completely gone anymore is for rally on these things. I agree on the traction control part though.
>>
>>20385189
Again, power to weight ratio means nothing if you are making shit for power even in comparison to something that weighs 1 or even 2000 lbs more.
>Source?
pic related, notice the top speed difference. the gap would only grow the longer the track. low weight low power isn't going to get you anywhere and you need to be able to put more power to the ground if you want to win which is where electronic assist come in.
>Also I`m pretty sure someone has LS-swapped a Super Seven by now...
gee, i wonder why its never set any lap records amongst even other caterhams.
>the Skyline GTR
i'm talking about the R35, remember, we are talking about cars around 500 HP where shit gets dangerous.
>If your suspension setup is good and you know how to drive this isn`t realy an issue.
Randy is a racing driver, even he could barely get close to the GTR's time in a C6 Z06 around streets of willow because he said he was fighting with the car and it gave him less confidence driving. that is straight from the racing horse's mouth and he was driving without traction control on so he is well trained to drive without it and still lost to the GTR so i can imagine your average joe would be in for a serious beating without assist.
>Anyway, I don`t buy a car to race, I buy it to have fun.
then you shouldn't be making decisions on expensive flagship performance cars cause you'd shit them up. not to mention not everyone finds fighting with your car and needing to be the best driver on the face of the earth just to get 90% out of it "fun". Motortrend, and even Randy, a racing driver, would often criticize the viper for being more difficult to drive than it needed to be compared to something like a vette with way more nannies.
>Audi Q2
Audi's heldex shit can't even compare to what a TLX's system can do let alone an NSX.

Electronic assist doesn`t help you there, especialy when you don`t have AWD.
>wonder why its never set any lap records
It would be ridiculously front-heavy and not handle well.
>i'm talking about the R35
The stock R-35 isn`t that fast either on the Nordschleife.
>500hp is dangerous
No, it isn`t.
>corvette handles like shit
What did you expect?
Has burgerland ever designed a car with a good suspension setup?
>muh fighting against the car
If the suspension and drivetrain setup is decent, you don`t fight against the car, you use these characterists to your advantage.
For example I like to steer my corner exit via load transfer, wich allows me run my car at the edge of its available grip.
>often criticize the viper for being more difficult to drive than it needed to be compared to something like a vette with way more nannies.
Again, you can make these things optional or at least make it possible for the driver to deactivate them.
>Audi's heldex shit can't even compare to what a TLX's system can do let alone an NSX.
That is not entirely true, in case of the Q2 it can produce a significant rear bias and torque-vectoring, although the real mechanical quattro is indeed a lot better than the other systems.

>It sure as hell does
then the fastest cars in the world should have less than 400 HP and be able to lap the ring in under 7. cars like the Caterham would be lucky if they broke 7:30.
>Electronic assist doesn`t help you there
It did, it helped the vette very much and the Camaro.
>It would be ridiculously front-heavy and not handle well.
on top of skidding everywhere because shit tier traction from no assist helping get the power to the ground.
>The stock R-35 isn`t that fast either on the Nordschleife.
Compared to a Murcielago, R8, and 997 911 Turbo? the AWD titans of that era? it definitely is.
>No, it isn`t.
According to Randy it is.
>What did you expect?
Ohh, you were shitposting. now i see why you think electronic assist are bad. never mind the fact that the Vette had magnetic ride which auto-addjust the damping settings every second to fine-tune the car to changing conditions which the GTR lacked giving it an advantage but you're free to find a RWD car with better handling with the same power to weight ratio of the era.
>If the suspension and drivetrain setup is decent, you don`t fight against the car
You fight with every car that has lots of power without assist. why do you think powerful cars won't be jarring?
>If the suspension and drivetrain setup is decent
the Vette's was, find me a car with a better setup in the same era with no assist.
>Again, you can make these things optional
Why bother when most people like and enjoy the assist? its what made the GTR so popular. most sports cars are ditiching Manual transmissions because almost everyone opts for the Auto which flies in the face of supposed driver's car wants but no one seems to care. R8 doesn't even have a Manual option anymore.
>Topspeed doesn`t realy matter
Yea it does, read Sport Autos Super test of the Z06 vs the AMG GTR. the main reason the AMG GTR was faster despite their own acknowledgment of the vette's superior handling was its slightly higher top speed down the long straight.

911 isn`t even AWD and the 911 GT2 RS MT is far ahead of the GTR.

500hp alone isn`t dangerous, it depends on the car, not the engine.

>Ohh, you were shitposting. now i see why you think electronic assist are bad. never mind the fact that the Vette had magnetic ride which auto-addjust the damping settings every second to fine-tune the car to changing conditions which the GTR lacked giving it an advantage but you're free to find a RWD car with better handling with the same power to weight ratio of the era.
Last time I checked the 911 had the record on the Nordschleife, and that by a huge margin.

All Lotuses are available with manual transmissions, same goes for Porsche, Miata is still available with a manual, Toybaru still has a manual and I could go on.
All drivers cars are still available with a manual transmission and even their automatic options are usually dual clutch with paddle shifters.

I’m sure it’s a decent car, and well engineered, but it doesn’t seem that special or excel in any particular category.
From what I’ve read, Honda kept changing the direction of this car over the course of 12 years. The recession in 2008 took a big toll on the project, canceling what was going to be an analog v10 drivers car closer in spirit to the original to the current hybrid set-up of today. Too many directors and too many conflicting ideas of what this car was supposed to be doomed it from the start. Also the styling sucks.

You are only proving the point of corporate greed, not life. Life is living in a house, farming your own land for food, and procreation. There isn't anything beyond that.

Inflation and excessive cost rising is why car dealerships are having to fuck over the legal system to stay in business. And by fucking over, I mean paying off politicians to change laws to benefit them. This is true in every 1st world country.

>The fastest car on the Nürburgring is 875 kg.
it also has over 1000 HP on slicks.
>It didn`t magicaly give it more traction
of course not, it manages power output so you aren't putting too much down allowing you to maintain more traction than you could otherwise without slicks.
>Electronics can`t increase grip
No, they help control the car's power which would make you lose grip from skidding.
>911 isn`t even AWD
how the fuck do you not know what the 911 Turbo is? it has existed since the 993. GT2 RS MT didn't exist until 2017. not relevant.

They sale in volumes comparison to an NSX despite being half or a quarter of the cost. most mainstream sports cars are doing away with Manual completely. only reason the 911 has its is because of the US or it too would've been dead a long time ago. Miata and Toyobaru have no good performance Autos to offer on the level of PDK.

even on tracks where you can't even reach your top speed the Caterham is clearly going to run out of steam far faster than more power cars which is why it can be beaten despite its insanely low weight. top end grunt almost all the time except for some of the shortest tracks.

Yea, but that thing is just crazy, they couldn`t have doen it with a heavy car...
>of course not, it manages power output so you aren't putting too much down allowing you to maintain more traction than you could otherwise without slicks.
When I exit a corner with my midship I steer with load transfer, there isn`t any more grip available for the electronics to utilise as I already split up everything between cornering and acelleration.
>No, they help control the car's power which would make you lose grip from skidding.
Ironicly my car has power-understeer, meaning that to a certain degree it understeers when I increase power-output midcorner.
>GT2 RS MT didn't exist until 2017. not relevant.
It exists at the same time as the GTR, so it is relevant as well.
>The cars we are talking about is 3100 lbs like the C6 Z06 which is dangerous.
The power isn`t what makes a car dangerous, it is its driving characteristics.

It's easy enough to take the thing off and if your going without abs you might as well take the entire system out.
It's actually easier than the older ones to do. Not sure why you would want a lot of the assistance off on it since it oversteers like a P1 when the awd and hybrid systems are completely disabled.

>>20385690
Pretty much. You can be a complete retard steering the thing and be fine.

Sadly in modern cars it isn`t as easy as it used to be.

Keep in mind it weights 1850 kg, that is insanely heavy.
>>
>>20385697
>they couldn`t have doen it with a heavy car...
That car doesn't match the decription of your 300 HP Caterham or the car you, yourself drive. so what was the point here? low power low weight still won't help you and i'm yet to be proven wrong.
>When I
you drive a low powered shitbox. why are you citing yourself?
>It exists at the same time as the GTR
It didn't exist in the GTR's era. i just said the GTR was faster than cars in its era because of its electronic nannies to which other manufacturer's realized they can go faster with more electronic assist and you want to quote newers cars that have more thinking it helps your point?
>The power isn`t what makes a car dangerous
Randy literally said otherwise. why are you arguing this when you drive a gutless shitbox lmao.
>The computer doesn`t know what I plan on doing
So you're saying when you put your foot down literally calling for more power the computer won't know what you plan on doing? because that's where the car with electronic assist will have the advantage over you. putting his power down better than you can down to a fine calculated number.
>horsepower alone are a pretty useless
I didn't give you horsepower alone. i gave you a powerful low weight car and cited a racing driver who drove it saying its dangerous. the waters are not muddy here but very clear.
>new NSX doesn`t realy sell that well for soem reason
1000 build count a year 1500 sold from 2016-17. ironically sold better than the Evora people keep saying his a modern NSX in the way people want.
>Last time I checked the 911 had the record on the ring.
Last i checked it had more assist than the previous car and still not a car of the C6's era but congrats on citing a car that got around with more assist and an Auto trans too. seens you agree the NSX made the right decision to go down that route afterall.

>They didn`t have engines that take boost
There are dozens of videos of 1000 HP R8s, Gallardo (shares the same engine). most people didn't buy the GTR because of its engine they bought it because of how easier it was to go fast in which is what almost every reviewer was saying at the time. people who want "an engine that can take boost" can buy a fox body with a good modular swap and have a street legal car that runs 8s for less than the price of even a 70k GTR. cars long before it offered cheap boostable engines. that's not even what answers you'll get if you go to Forums for why they bought it.
>Mainstream sports cars at this point are verry few
The Vette, 911, GTR and R8 are mainstream sports cars according to their reviewers.
>Not at all
Porsche themselves said so.
>get it to comply with new EU regulations.
Get a Manual trans to comply with EU regulations? i'm pretty sure that takes no effort on the same exact gen car that offered it years prior.
>Indeed
so they aren't relevant to this discussion because the autos are shit tier compared to the manuals so why would anyone buy the Autos? cars that gave good autos people almost always buy them in Auto far more. look at how many Auto Z06s sold compared to Manual. new GT500 has no Manual option either because the auto is actually good.
>Audis halo-car
Halo cars can be sports cars. regardless it is defintely considered a driver's car.
>same price caterham
what does this have to do with assist being better for cars which is why the industry went that way to put down more power to go faster? Caterham hasn't even lapped the ring.
>>
>>20385781
>That car doesn't match the decription of your 300 HP Caterham
Sure, it is a purpose build car just for that one track.
>why are you citing yourself?
Because that is how I drive, slow in, fast out.
>It didn't exist in the GTR's era
The R-35 is still in production.
>Randy literally said otherwise. why are you arguing this when you drive a gutless shitbox lmao.
My car is everything but gutless, while indeed not mainly designed for acelleration, it sure smoked some V-8s.
>So you're saying when you put your foot down literally calling for more power the computer won't know what you plan on doing?
Yes, since I use the resulting load transfer and corresponding understeer as means to ballance cornering force vs. acelleration.
>I didn't give you horsepower alone. i gave you a powerful low weight car
1400 kg isn`t low weight.
>1000 build count a year 1500 sold from 2016-17. ironically sold better than the Evora

Slow in fast out is the fastet way and putting down more power midcorner causes understeer, ESP doesn't help here since all four tires are already at their limit at that point.

It doesn't lack power.
>not to mention you said you drive for fun not to go fast so you probably aren't even a good driver behind the wheel of a powerful car.
The fact that I use weight transfer for steering should say enough about my ability to controll cars with more power.

So more of a boring GT instead of a proper sports car?

It says nothing about the GT2 RS MT.

The reason the GTR is popular is the combination of an engine that can take boost, AWD and a somewhat decent suspension, not its traction controll.

You need to test the whole setup in a new complex test again and you need to optimise it for the test in order to pass it.

There's no real market for the new NSX sadly. When it comes to high end impractical sports cars at this price point there's typically 2 demographics, people who just want to show off, and those who actually car about driving, enough they might even track the damn thing. The NSX appeals to neither of these groups because when you option one out there are just better choices as far as driving dynamics and design go, to say nothing of the interior. I like the exterior but the inside ain't anything special, I can say it's unobtrusive and won't look super dated like a lot of modern interiors already do. There are too many better alternatives and too much tech, they may have ironed out the software issues but all the digital bits have come at a big cost, and no one is going to buy an Acura to flaunt their wealth status.

The original NSX was novel because of the amount of cars it could show up, back when dedicated high-end performance vehicles simply weren't all that common to begin with. The average upper-middle class person with a god job and decent credit could usually manage to get a hold of one and still be financially secure. Fast forward to today and the middle class might as well not exist, there is no credit available outside the elite wealth class, and in general it's much harder to build performance cars let alone make a profit on them without a sky high price point.

It's not 20% more. The average liquid wealth is vastly lower and the price of cars is way higher than inflation should put them. Cars today are overpriced by a good 30-40% and as such, these sports cars SHOULD be the price of a high end saloon, not the price of a 90's super that they are slower than.

Blame it on Arabs paying absolutely ridiculous amounts for cars. We just sold a converted old school mini with the 2.6 Hyabusa engine for nearly £100,000 when the parts and labour cost maybe 1/3rd that. That's without the "unique" standards shit that Arabs like to have,

do you live in a coutnry with displacement taxes? America buys more sports cars than any other country or region on earth.

lap times are a measurement of being faster and its why more assist are better. manufacturer's don't care what's more "fun" they care what's faster.

Yeah whatever but have you particularly driven an NSX? You speak like you know how exactly it drives and feels.

I haven't driven the NSX but I'm sure it would still feel like a sportscar while driving because why would Honda leave out that feature? Yes, it has nannies but look at what Honda wanted. They wanted a futuristic supercar with the present hybrid tech.

The answer is, that 1-gen NSX is a Nissan MID-4.
And 2-gen they made by themselves and fucked up

>then when you boosted yout car up to 500 HP and go around faster than modern sports cars get back to me.
500 hp in a sub 1000 kg would be nuts, that is supercar level.
>but from different eras.
They are from the same time, so they are from the same era.
>so enough to drop the slowest shitbox that can qualify for an AMG badge but no where near C6 Z06 level.
AMG V-8s sure as hell are no slouches m8
>cope with being slower cause no assist
quite the opposite

typical benchracer

The MT is a totaly reworked design and not mentioned in the article.

The north american market still isn't the entire story.

>AMG V-8s sure as hell are no slouches

>The MT is a totaly reworked design
Is RS in its name? is it new? then it was mentioned in the article. if Porsche kept the electronics in the other RS cars what makes you think they suddenly ripped them out in the MT? no one does that. cite me a single time any manufacturer has with the same model. especially when it would make them slower when doing a lap. even on the Nurburgring listing there is no car called "RS MT" so it probably has never even done a lap and doens't matter anyway.
>Why should I buy a boring car?
You shouldn't buy any car and should stop replying aswell. literally throw your computer in the gerbage after you read this. you're just finding anything and everything to reply to just because. count your losses and leave. you replied to a post 6 hours later for fucks sake. i honestly think you're just pretending to be retarded with the "le 2007 car is from the same era has le 2017 car" and "they couldn't have possibly meant this newer RS when they said newer RS". you're shitting up 4chan and making Yotsuba cry and that's just sick.

Manthey Racing changes quite a lot on their 911.

Spelled it wrong, it was MR not MT.

GTR is not from 2017 its from 2007.
>Not realy...
yea, really. corvettes shit on them all apart from the AMG GT/SLS and SLR. if you didn't race any of those then you raced a slouch.
>Manthey Racing changes quite a lot on their 911
Nothing to do with ripping out the electronic assist systems so it seems you once and for all agree that they belong in sports cars and they are better with them.
>No.
Well you are now since you have no argument anymore. it was fun but stay BTFO once and for all.
>>
>>20384469
Next on the list is Supra. Mark my words. This shit will be hype at the beggining and as soon as all reviewers and koolduds drive them - it will be pretty much forgotten. Just like NSX. I even forgot stuff like new NSX exists. Also it is almost entirely based on BMW, so even less cool factor. Dead on arrival pretty much.
>>
>>20388428
People still talk about the NSX constantly all over car media. Search "NSX updates" into google and click on "news" and even in Japan they are taking note of any and all changes honda makes.

2017 GTR is from 2017
>yea, really. corvettes shit on them all apart from the AMG GT/SLS and SLR. if you didn't race any of those then you raced a slouch.
Yea, AMG is totaly knownfor verry slow cars...
>Nothing to do with ripping out the electronic assist systems so it seems you once and for all agree that they belong in sports cars and they are better with them.
Nope, they make sports cars less fun, if I wanted to do a fast lap on the Nürburgring with all assists, I'd take the Ringtaxi...
>Well you are now since you have no argument
You just said that I shouldn't reply, wich is not an argument.
>>
>>20388517
A model T built in the modern era does not make it of this era
>AMG is totaly knownfor verry slow cars..
yep, so call me when you race something fast.
Sports cars like the GTR win driver's car of the year therefore they must be fun
You shouldn't reply because at this point you have no response to assist being objectively better and are just arguing what you feel is "fun".
>>
>>20388558
>A model T built in the modern era does not make it of this era
The era of a car lasts at least as long as it is originaly manufactured, besides Nissan made a lot of modifications to the GTR.
>AMG
>slow in a straight line
Show me one AMG with their V-8 that is slow...
>GTR
>drivers car
KEK, maybe tuners car, but the GTR ins`t a drivers car.
>fun is not important for a sports car
Sports cars are made to be fun to drive on the road, nothing else.
That is why I judge them by how much fun they are to drive.
Why would anyone even buy a sports car that actively prevents him from having fun with it?
>>
>>20388604
>The era of a car lasts at least as long as it is originaly manufactured
Nope. differen't time when designing and different technology availible for producing.
>besides Nissan made a lot of modifications to the GTR.
unless they dumped the entire car and replaced it with a new one its still not of this era.
>Show me one AMG with their V-8 that is slow...
anything that's not a AMG GT, SLS or SLR. you can just use google to find the ones that aren't these cars i'm not gonna list em.
>but the GTR ins`t a drivers car.
Of course its not a driver's car to the guy with some shitbox.
>Sports cars are made to be fun to drive on the road, nothing else.
you should make your own sports cars then and i could maybe one day take that statement seriously.
>Why would anyone even buy a sports car that actively prevents him from having fun with it?
If people have fun in GTRs and NSXs then fun is not being prevented.
>>
>>20388626
>Nope. differen't time when designing and different technology availible for producing.

They changed the suspension setup multiple times, modified the aerodynamics and changed a shitload on the engine.
2007 GTR isn`t the same car as the 2017 one.
>anything that's not a AMG GT, SLS or SLR.
C-63 isn`t slow.
>Of course its not a driver's car
Indeed, it can`t compare to a good roadster.
>you should make your own sports cars then
Lotus, Mazda, Porsche and Toyota build such cars.
>If people have fun in GTRs and NSXs then fun is not being prevented.
They sure prevent a lot of stuff, like kicking the rear out far or using lift-off oversteer in tight corners.
>>
>>20388653
>They changed the suspension setup multiple times, modified the aerodynamics and changed a shitload on the engine.
Still not of this era, just the specific parts they changed.
>C-63 isn`t slow.
You're right, its molasse in car form.
>it can`t compare to a good roadster.
but you've never compared them so you don't even know.
>Lotus, Mazda, Porsche and Toyota
You don't speak for them or what they want their cars to be and nothing more.
>They sure prevent a lot of stuff
doesn't sound like anything worth a damn outside of personal opinion.

Because it's a Japanese version of the R8 with a smaller engine and a bigger price tag. Let's be real- who the fuck is going to pay $160K for a v6 hybrid?

>>20392226
R8 also weights about 300 kg less
