Oh yeah, just remembered. To get the GT-R, Nissan had Lotus develop suspension for sure, and something else i believe. Either way, it wasn't a 100% Nissan effort.

What is wrong with that?
All sort of companies do that. Even Audi had Porche develop the RS2.
Nothing wrong with getting someone better to do this. In fact it makes it an even better product!

So?

The point isn't who made it, the point is that it exists.




Why are people so butthurt over the GT-R? I really don't get it.

And I'm saying this as someone that is actually quite indifferent about the car. I never think about it the way I do other cars, it's a hit and miss design with some people aesthetically. As far as I'm concerned, it's a car that's just there... but it is extremely capable for many different reasons. It can best a lot of the competition, but people seems so unwilling to give it any credit.

Oh, by the way... that GT-R isn't 100% a Nissan product.
So ****ing what? How does that change what the car is? Now you're just nitpicking, and it devalues your credibility as an argument.

That wasn't an argument, i was just stating a fact.

It doesn't change what the car is, it changes Nissan's pride in "their" product, and their ability.

Yeah but what does this have to do with anything?

We're not talking about Nissan's pride, we're talking about a car.

So in your mind an Audi RS2 is junk cause Porche build it?
Or maybe a Merc E500 cause Porche and Cosworth build it?
Or to bring it to more modern cars....is an R8 V10 any worst because the engine is from Lamborghini?

Come on man its bs what you re saying.
I mean if the company involved is better than its a plus for the car. If for example Nissan had hired Hyundai to help i would agree with you but Lotus is known for their chassis work!!!!
Stop trying to bring this car down by picking hair.
The fact is Nissan upped the game with this car for all and its a great car.
