I can't think of a direct response to this where I don't get banned
Prior to its debut, I hoped the GTR would have a manual trans option. But it doesn't make sense at all. The only point of the MT anymore is to add that dimension to the driving experience. The GTR is a speed robot, this does not compute. "Fun? But.. Slower? Character? Whaaaat?" For people with money who are also actual driving enthusiasts, there will always be 911s and M3s with MT option. Just make way and let the GTRs pass on the track.
I also hoped the GTR would be under $70k, and it sorta was. But before my buying window even closed (i.e. I gathered my senses) huge dealer markups became the rule and it blasted off to the moon shortly thereafter. This year it will probably start over $100k and typically sticker $110k. These improvements will be cited.
