Any car of that caliber is a show car on the road. Fast cars on public roads are boring. Those that buy the car for anything else are usually getting a GT3 for track days and most of those I've seen lapping slower than a track-built Honda civic because the drivers are too scared of the car. You can hear them lift and not get on the throttle through every turn.
If you think they are the best, go get one. Resale value is terrible so you would have no trouble finding one that is affordable.
Is the 350z "artificially inferior" to the GT-R? I just don't understand why the concept of different models stops applying when talking about Porsche.
