2011 Nissan GT-R Reviews. The 2011 Nissan GT-R ranks 1 out of 8 Super Luxury Sports Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of 26 published reviews and test drives of the Nissan GT-R, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
Since its introduction in 2009, the Nissan GT-R, or “Gran Turismo-Racer,” has become world-renowned for its combination of raging sports-car performance, functional design and first-rate interior accommodations. “Once you behold the 2011 Nissan GT-R, you will have no doubt in your mind that it is one of the greatest supercars ever built,” writes Automobile.com. “Even more amazingly, the GT-R costs only about half of what most of its competitors do.”
Now three years old, the highly-acclaimed Nissan GT-R receives minor tweaks for 2011, but maintains its supercar allure and abilities. While the base trim has been discontinued, the Nissan GT-R Premium receives a mild refresh. Also, a number of previously optional features are now standard. Not surprisingly, reviewers are impressed. Autoblog writes, “The illustrious Nissan GT-R is, quite possibly, one of our favorite cars currently in production.”
Still, the 2011 Nissan GT-R isn’t without its faults. In addition to a useless back seat, it garners mixed reviews for its looks. Plus, some purists cringe at the fact that the Nissan GT-R doesn’t come equipped with a traditional manual transmission. But taken as a whole, these are minor issues.
Given the GT-R’s 2011 upgrades, shoppers should expect a slightly steeper sticker price. The 2010 model starts at $80,790. However, the 2011 Nissan GT-R will carry a starting price of $84,060. But considering that the 2011 Nissan GT-R’s performance capabilities rival higher-priced exotics from Ferrari and Lamborghini, it’s still a steal.
