Japanese = German

For a long time now, German cars have been part of the best driving cars made. BMW and Porsche are both awesome cars to drive. Japanese cars have long been produced for fuel efficiency and long hassle free life. Autocar, from the UK, tested the new Nissan GT-R against BMW's M3 and Porsche 911 GT3. Here are the videos. Part 1 Part 2 I love how this guy reminds us that Nissan used to be Datsun. Also, I love the shots of the cars in full drift around the corners. He scored Nissan as equal to Porsche but far above BMW. From everything I saw, I'd go with the Nissan. It will give the most consistent times and handling. The car practically drives itself. I know that sounds off for me, but I'm getting old and lazy. I do like to enjoy driving, and my VW is (in my mind) a scaled down Porsche; but for consistent performance, the Nissan is the way to go.
