Steering and clutch are lighter, shifter is better - you just don't get the sense that you're constantly working to keep a beast under control like you do on a 997 GT3. ... I need to take some proper pics after I get the thing detailed and paint protection filmed

The GT4 is definitely usable as a daily driver.  One of the guys in our local cars & coffee group has had his since October and he daily drives it except when there is snow.  

 

Congrats again!   The GT4 is definitely an awesome car guaranteed to put a smile on any owner's face!!!  Now go get paint protection installed and post some better pix!

36/45k. That's about the same as the Audi Q series, FWIW.

Stiffer than stock M3, less stiff than the M3 with KW v3

Guys - I saw this gorgeous car today. It looked pretty damn expensive. I didn't know if it was a Ferrari or a Porsche or something and it was hard to tell. I did pull up next to the driver, but felt too small timer to ask. Any help?

You should have pulled up and asked. He seems like a nice guy - he even helpfully put his name on his license plate "Ben Zicla" so you could address him by name

That's how I realized Edina Tlanta was a nice guy.

My license plate is 7NG N8 26 - 1337 speak for Ling Nate - and I'm 26 years old.

The guy in the CLA looked just like Saul - not Breaking Bad Saul, but more Better Call Saul Jimmy.

Gonna step out of PorscheBJ mode for this post:

I notice that R32 Skylines are fairly available in the States because they're all >25 y/o and ok to import. This is not necessarily news but I was pleasantly surprised at the asking prices. Now, many people may find $25-30k for a 25 yo Japanese car ridiculous, but this is a car that's been an unobtainable legend for all of my formative car years. Has anyone been tempted by one of these things? Over, say, a new Z or WRX?? I guess you'd have to get RHD tho

Personally I think I'd hold out for the year 2024 and the R34 biggrin.gif

Doug Demuro from Jalopnik had a few videos on Skyline ownership now that they can legally be imported into the US.  One of his biggest issues seemed to be that he never really got used to driving a right hand drive vehicle.

Yeah the R34 is my favorite looking generation of the skylines.
