I read somewhere that in Japan every performance car is compared to the GT-R...why is this?

Is the GT-R "the God" over there? :help:

No really, it is the most popular/respected car in Japan.

So to be completely truthful, it IS God over there. :)

I haven't lived in Japan for 3 years now, so I don't know :)

Don't take my word for it, I didn't really pay attention to other cars, but 3 years ago, I think both Supra and Evo were rated pretty high after the GT-R. ;)

Ill take the skyline r34 over any of the evos but since the US skline is looking like it will be based off of the xvl if these cars come to america id buy the evo 7 over the xvl based skline.

I have seen it once, the evo IV RS out runs the GTR by almost 1 sec. during the 0-400m sprint. This making you feel good?

Yep! totally agreed. Nevertheless, both GTR33. or 34 are heavy, and relatively slow and less agile as the Evo VI / VII. All you see as awesome powered GTRs are not straightly production car, they are mods, heavily tune up, and only last few laps.

No, EVOs for the fist fury, and GT-R for the ham fists.

Evos kick serious ass, but the Skyline is just on a different level. If someone gave me a skyline, I'd go out and smoke some riceboy hondas, then sell it and buy a fleet of EVOs!

Why buy a XVL if it comes over? U forget bout the GT-R. Thats the 1 u should consider buying if it eva was offered n the US.
Evo's, great cars but Im just a Nissan luver...:smoker2:

The original poll is a no-brainer for me: Skyline. Period. Next tough question? ;)

However, your follow-up five-car poll requires substantially more thought on my part:

Originally posted by lancerz

My Choices:
1. Evo VI - The real deal :devil:
2. GT-R - The Big Boy (i like the R33 better!) :bandit:
3. RX7 - Impressive :cool:
4. NSX - Attractive :p
5. Supra - boring and big :bloated: :sleep:



Here are my picks:

1) Skyline or Supra*
2) NSX
3) RX-7
4) Evo VI

I like the Skyline and the Supra for their enormous power potentials and great engineering approaches with power upgrading built in with every nut and bolt.

Being a Honda fanatic, I love the NSX, with itís outstanding design (still the best production car ever made in Japan in my book), but it was not built to be a power monster the way the Supra and Skyline were, even though it is highly capable in this regard.

The RX-7 is also awesome, but it loses points because as cool as the Wenkel rotary engine may be, it is complex and presents lots of unknown problems as an unconventional internal combustion engine.

As for the Evo VI, such a great car, but it just doesnít get it done for me as well as any of the others in this comparison.


*Toss up, as both cars are very similar and represent enormous power potential Ė Iíd have to do more research as to which has more possibilities to work with before making a final choice as to which Iíd prefer. In terms of what I know, Iíll take the Supra. But I donít know nearly as much about the Skyline, as it is not a US domestic car. If I knew more about it, I might very well take a Skyline over a Supra. Whichever loses out between these two drops to my second place choice, and the other cars fall back accordingly as well.

Lexington, Kentucky? Oh sure.. I'll be there in... I dunno, 20 to 30 hours. Hey, I've got next week off, what else have a got to do?

Ha ha, maybe next time man. I am a fan of sedans, and I know there are at least some Skyline models available with four doors. Can't figure out why so many are opposed to sports cars with four doors... I guess they think it detracts from a car's purity as a "sports car," but dammit, the world needs a little more practicality here and there.

I can't really decide. The GT-R is my first love, definitely. I guess that's the case since I hadn't even learned about the Lancer until about 4 years later.lol It's the real "King of the Japanese Sports cars."
Look at the Lan Evo as the guy trying to usurp the throne. With the same power, a comparable awd system, all with less weight, the Lancer can definitely give a GT-R a run for it's money. For on road tossability, it's lighter weight and smaller size gives it the advantage. But even when tuned, it can't keep up with a tuned GT-R on the top end.

In the end, I choose both: The Evo as my weekend, unwinding, 'leave the world behind' car. The GT-R would be my sleek(relatively:rolleyes: ), 'brute in a suit' everyday car. And it'd definitely be my dating ride.:rolleyes: Jackie Chan drives Lan Evos and doesn't get any chicks, but I bet James Bond could use a GT-R and still pull in the ladies.:D

Damnnnn

this Thread has been so developed...

I like what Violinandy said, that has given me a smile on my face. :D

Like i said, The R33 looks more appealing, but the R34 shouldnt be under-estimated, either should the Evo VI. Once those they are tuned, they can kick some Ass.

When it comes to raw performance and modifications, Skylines are they way to go. However, if you were to buy an EVO6, leave it alone!
it's already 100% balanced.... don't do any performance upgrades. Skylines reach 1000bhp easy, nismo style, but it's a bloody flying coffin... no point having so much power but can't take a corner.... so it's really how you want to loook at it...
:)
if both were taken stock, EVO all the way!! MWahahhaa

Evolution 7 is actually faster to 60mph than Skyline is. But the top speed of Evo 7 is still in question.

That is pretty stupid..

They are completely different cars.. The EVO was designed for dirt..

Who here has driven the EVO VI/VI.5 WRX v5? They are quick yes, but when it comes to road handling I am sorry but I hope you like understeer.. They are full Time 4WD.. this is a damn unpredictable thing, but great for dirt racing.

I am sick of people thinking that just because it is the king of the dirt, it will also be great on the road.

Also how many EVO's break 10s 1/4's without a million dollars spent on them.. good luck breaking 12's without $50,000+ spent.. GTR.. well just run some boost and break 12's.

GTR
Supra
NSX
Rx7
EVO
WRX

I think some of you need to do more driving and less judging.. I bet 90% of you havn't seen a R34 in the flesh let alone know how it handles..

10-23-2001, 06:22 PM
damn i can't believe i missed this! i hate gettin in late! :D

The Evo would probably be beating the skyline by a little bit up to like 80 mph.. after the skyline gets into 3rd gear, BYE BYE EVO!!! :D :D

This is an easy choice for me R34 GT-R ALL THE WAY!! What do i need a rally car for? i'm just gunna be driving on the street, might aswell get a car that's meant for the street. Plus the Skyline looks about hmmmmm 17.4323 times better than the evo :D
i think the evo is the one that looks boxy, the skyline looks so angry, like it can tear any car a new asshole

The R34 Skyline GT-R is my favorite car
