Default 911 vs Gt-R vs R8

I guess the title says it all. Which one do you like the best? The 911 with its classic lines? The GT-R with its performance or the R8 which won almost all the car of the year awards.

For me its the 911. I believe the GT-R is the fastest among the 3 but somehow when I'm spending around $70k, I wouldn't just be looking for performance. The R8 is a beautiful looking car but somehow just doesn't hit the spot. The 911 somehow excites me the most and looks the best.

Voted for the Nissan GTR.

I just love the porsche for its smooth curves and lines and the R8 for its beastly and muscular stance but hey its got to be a GTR !!! If i had the moolah I'd get the GTR and the 911. I'll leave the R8 out just this once.

Audi R8 for me. The GT-R is great and so is the 911. However GTR is too bulky for my liking and too many of the 911's around. I guess the Audi's will be seen just as much very soon and the desirability will go down as well !

I would have to say the 911 first, and R8 next...not too sure the GT-R features in my list if I were to choose only one...

Imagine, you pick up a chick and she says "Oh so you drive a Nissan"

and then you floor the gas pedal and show her what you're packin.. and then she shuts up for the rest of the ride and doesnt even think about taunting you on your "NISSAN" ever again . does that sound good enough?

Well I wish that were true, trust me I really do...But even still it would definately be the Porsche over the Nissan...
Where's the comparison???
It's like saying I'm wearing an Armani over Louis Phillipe...
It's like buying a Reebok instead of Bata...
It's like choosing a 5* restaurant over the one around the corner

It's Porsche over the Nissan anyday.......Between the R8 and the GT-R now that's the question...

What if the GT-R beats you with your chick by your side in your Porsche?
I guess you say " Ah! its just a Nissan"

the GTR commands much higher respect than the non-turbo Porsches (even though its steeply cheaper than the turbo and also beats the turbo). And if a chic likes to have rides in nice cars, she would surely know what a GTR is.
